Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

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.


More than just a simple twist on Cornell Note-Taking, the Focus Method is a teaching method that supports teaching using "best practices" and a focused learning approach.

The template makes use of Dates, Page Numbers, Objectives, Cornell Notes, Summary, and a Homework/Test Learning Planner.

The Focus Method prompts the students to write down objectives to initiate focus and purpose for learning, provides ample space for note-taking, and makes use of multiple ways to process information. In addition, students are given space for questioning, setting learning goals, and planning for homework and exams.
