They need perfectly clear and practical information that can be applied tomorrow.In The Big What Now Book of Learning Styles, parents and teachers will find an emphasis on "what to do about it". This book:-supplies hundreds of activities keyed to learning styles for easy access and application-covers practical strategies for success in spelling, writing, math, history, geography, science, and more-inspires parents and teachers to act with confidence on the conviction of God's potential in each childCarol is a homeschooling mom who speaks coast to coast at homeschool conferences and is a frequent radio show guest. With much laughter coupled with highly practical solutions, Carol shares strategies that encourage us to open the gift that is our child, to see our child and ourselves as God designed us each to be, and to fulfill his plan for each of us, educationally and in daily living.
