This refreshing book takes an honest, realistic approach to helping students become better learners. It recognizes that many of today's students don't seem to care about school--or, if they do, it's for all the wrong reasons. This book helps them want to learn. Yet it also appeals to students who are already motivated and positive about school. Attitude is filled with interesting, fun-to-do activities that help students of all abilities do the following: see and understand the value of knowledge and learning; look realistically at the future; recognize and build on their strengths; change bad habits; and learn practical ways to improve school performance. Even if you try nothing else from the book, the chapter on WABs (Whiners And Blamers) is one you shouldn't miss. It includes humorous activites that will help your students take responsibility for their actions. Perfect as a supplemental tool in any classroom, grades 6-9. Most activities suitable for older students as well.
