It is very important that your curriculum includes workbooks for the children. The workbooks should correlate directly with the main text and have exercises that correspond with the lessons—there should be many exercises in these workbooks, not just a few. The exercises should be challenging for the children and should be able to help you, as a teacher assess where they as far as how well they have absorbed the material you have been studying and if you need to review the lesson(s) again with them. These workbooks should have more than one exercise for each lesson and a key in the back that will provide and explain SOME of the answers—but not all.
As an educator, you believe that your students need to obtain as much information as possible, earlier in their experience in school. You will want to try to inspire your students to think beyond today—to actively plan for tomorrow. If your workbooks reflect a poor understanding of the material—they should already be considering the need to study harder and to know this information well, because they will be tested on it. They should be driven to not want to fail. Without the questions in their workbooks that relate exactly to the text you are teaching from—the students may believe that they understand the material when they do not.
To become more successful in school can be an awakening for students and their families—opening doors to possibilities they did not consider before. Believe it or not, workbooks are a major part of the tools that can make that happen. Through a series of engaging lessons, and watching themselves become more and more successful at their learning, the children begin to understand that a college education is possible. By using workbooks your school will also have better overall testing scores. By assessing where they are in their learning process and from that determining how to help the children further, your workbooks will come in quite handy. Of course, a good teacher also has his or her own methods of making learning more fun—or further testing a childs skills without the use of workbooks—but workbooks are the introductory tool to proceed such methods.
Offer your student the very best college preparation—no matter what grade they are in. Ask them what they want to be when they grow up and explain to them the importance of learning in being able to achieve that goal. You can also present advice to students in a workbook format.
Lessons, both with and without their workbooks help students find out for themselves the power of education and how necessary it will be to their future.
New High School curriculums rely heavily on workbooks, including an interactive websites with in-depth information about how to improve their skills, as well as colleges, majors and careers.
