No matter what kind of school your kids attend, you want them exposed to as many opportunities for growth as possible. But how can you do that in a system where testing has trumped experiential learning? If you’ve asked yourself this question, you won’t want to miss the newly released book Skies Wide Open: How to Teach Your Child to Dream Big and Love Learning by educator Timothy M. Horn.
The book took the number one slot in three Kindle categories and was the number one new release in its category. It’s written for parents and teachers who want to learn how to help children learn — and do it painlessly while still functioning in the larger academic system.
Are you looking for any of these things?
- A better educational experience for the child
- A better teaching experience for the teacher
- A better relationship with the school system
- A better parent/child relationship
- A better future for everyone
Why Teach Children to Love Learning?
An Indiana University Survey of Student Engagement revealed that 30 percent of students say they are bored in school due to lack of interaction with teachers. And 75 percent report that material being taught is not interesting.
On top of these statistics, according to the U.S. Department of Education, every year more than 1.2 million students drop out of high school. That’s 7,000 students a day. It’s time to re-engage them, Horn believes.
Learning the Secret
As a public and private school teacher for more than 20 years, Tim devoted his time to teaching students how to learn. By reigniting the love of knowledge within them, he now prepares them for their life’s journey. His latest book shows just how he does it and how you can implement his techniques through simple, fun games and exercises.
Pick up the book to get started today or attend one of Horn’s upcoming workshops, like “Open the Skies! Parent-Child Back to School Prep” to be held Aug. 22 and 23 from 6:00 p. m. to 7:30 p. m. at his Hypnoconsult office in Manassas. These workshops are for parent and child duos. In these workshops, Tim teaches techniques to prepare for classes, make connections to foster better memory, learn more easily and make school fun. The sessions include interactive exercises for parents and their children together. Each parent/child couple will also receive a free copy of Tim’s book.
Horn says you can set your child up for success this school year with a new outlook on the learning process and excitement about what’s to come. For questions about the book, upcoming workshops or speaking engagements, contact Tim Horn through his website or call 703-969-5791.
