Description

Written by two Ivy League graduates who struggled with learning disabilities and ADHD, Learning Outside the Lines teaches students how to take control of their education and find true success with brilliant and easy study suggestions and tips.

Every day, your school, your teachers, and even your peers draw lines to measure and standardize intelligence. They decide what criteria make one person smart and another person stupid. They decide who will succeed and who will just get by. Perhaps you find yourself outside the norm, because you learn differently—but, unlike your classmates, you have no system in place that consistently supports your ability and desire to learn. Simply put, you are considered lazy and stupid. You are expected to fail.

Learning Outside the Lines is written by two such "academic failures"—that is, two academic failures who graduated from Brown University at the top of their class. Jonathan Mooney and David Cole teach you how to take control of your education and find true success—and they offer all the reasons why you should persevere. Witty, bold, and disarmingly honest, Learning Outside the Lines takes you on a journey toward personal empowerment and profound educational change, proving once again that rules sometimes need to be broken.

  • (4/5)
    I had to read this book for one of my education classes, and when I started to read the opening the book I was shocked with how it was written. The book is written by two college aged young men who talk about their horror stories of their education career before they started college. A story of determination is then developed into all these different kinds of tips about writing essays, reading homeowork, note taking, and much more! I found some of the tips or parts of their story I could relate do or did with my own assignments. Whether you have a disability yourself, you know someone who does, or want to go into education, the book is a very light read, and very funny, so you should read it!
