I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

Chapter 1 explains the most effective way to use Crush School. Check out this excerpt:

Read actively. That means that you should take notes while you read THIS OR ANY OTHER PIECE OF TEXT, highlight, circle, underline etc. Your brain makes stronger connections, so you understand and remember better when you read actively.
