by Michael Maloney
For the past 30 years, effective methods of teaching children and preventing illiteracy have been used in a small number of schools and learning centers across North America. Despite their proven effectiveness, these methods have never been adopted by mainstream educators. This book documents the use of three effective methods of making students successful in school: Behavior Analysis/Behavior Management, Direct Instruction, and Precision Teaching. It focuses on the method in which Michael Maloney combined these powerful technologies into a single whole to produce even more rapid academic gains for both children and adults. For anyone with a child in school, an interest in education or literacy, or a concern for the quality of students that North American public education currently produces, this is a must-read book.
