Stop and Think Learning offers teachers a step-by-step method to motivate children to learn in the classroom. The highly successful method shows children what they can change and how they can plan that change.

The book also describes the Stop Think Do method for training social skills and improving relationships in the classroom. The book addresses the challenge of how to motivate all children in the classroom, each with their different histories, different styles and different problems to overcome.

The programmes in Stop and Think Learning cater for individual student needs such as:

  • The child with specific learning difficulties
  • The bright underachiever
  • The child with poor concentration
  • The average child with subject weaknesses
  • The slow learning child
  • The child with a 'difficult' personality

Photocopiable masters for individual or group planning are also included.
