Each unit has detailed teacher plans, providing a structured, effective learning cycle that will:

  • utilise a range of learning styles

  • address the development of the Multiple Intelligences

  1. The book and DVD are an invaluable source of information for trainee and established teachers. The exercises are simple and effective to use in classroom situations. The resource will assist effective teaching and learning in schools
  2. Garry Burnett's inspirational book shows how to embed a whole series of skills into the classroom that will last students a lifetime.
  3. With its upbeat, aspirational tone this learning resource could be just the thing for injecting some novelty into teaching and learning.
  4. Garry is one of those committed and inspirational teachers who any parent would want to teach their child.
  5. This book was a delightful surprise after all the books I have seen and read on accelerated learning. The layout was very much in line with my own approach to learning, that is, it does all begin in the mind.

    What I particularly liked about this book is the fact that it was written for a variety of ages from 13 upwards and easily digestible in format. Pictures, stories, facts, exercises were all well linked to different intelligences. Having stories of people who have succeeded and the way they used their different intelligences is an excellent way to motivate people to achieving the life of their dreams. It also encourages people to realise that success is not random but by doing things in a certain way.

    I will certainly recommend this book to my clients as I believe this is a great compliment to the Rapid Sensory Learning and Deliberate Creation programme for studying. It allows each person to learn more about their own intelligences at their own pace as well as finding new keys and techniques that can be used over and above the sequence of Rapid Sensory Learning and Deliberate Creation.
