Former High School Principal Richard James Giordano
Shares His Fun, Standard-Defying Strategies for Boosting Learning and Memory Power in
Featuring a Foreword by Dr. Benjamin Carson and a Chapter Devoted to
Overcoming the Stigma against Academic Excellence among Young Black Students
In a recent, much-reported international study of the academic proficiency of high school students, the U.S. ranked 36, trailing behind not only China but Estonia. Clearly, the state of education in America is troubled. What can parents do to give their kids an advantage at learning and excelling in school, and life beyond it, regardless of how teacher teach?
Improving how kids learn is easy, assures Richard James Giordano, who worked in public education for 30 years, as a middle school teacher and a high school principal. Even better, it’s fun—and can benefit parents (and grandparents) too! In Super-Charged Learning: How Wacky Thinking and Sports Psychology Make It Happen (pub info), Giordano shares his unique strategies for becoming a whiz at learning and remembering new information. As he makes clear, supported by research, experts, and examples galore, learning really can be as simple as using your senses! “By nature, we are all emotional, physical, and visual beings,” Giordano observes. “The trick is choosing to apply these human (genomic) traits to the things we want to learn.”
As Richard Giordano is raring to talk about, Super-Charged Learning shows:
· How Making Up Crap—silly and goofy stuff—works like a charm to strengthen sensory associations and make learning and recalling new stuff a snap;
· How to tap into the atomic learning power of Synergistic Thinking and the techniques competitive athletes use to psych themselves up for winning;
· How Athlete-Powered Learning can make it cool for boys to take learning seriously and put a stop to the practice in the black community of charging young black students who care about academic achievement as much as or more than sports with “Acting White”...and much more.
In February, Giordano will embark on a five-city tour to Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York, Chicago and Denver to promote the book.
