Understanding questions is the key to answering them! We see so many students struggle with this skill, but if we are not approaching it the right way, we can prolonging their stress! So often people work on simply 'learning the answers' rather than 'learning the question'. This just leads to more frustration and stagnant progress. That ends here! This resource will guide you through teaching the meaning behind the question and systematically increasing your students level of difficulty as they learn to apply their new found understanding. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ WHY THE 'WHAT CURRICULUM'?
