Scientific subjects such as environmental problems, the energy crisis, AIDS, medicine, engineering, space exploration, and terrorism have become front-page news. What we do about the problems existing on our planet and the way we react to new developments affects, like it or not, not only our personal lives but also the lives of the rest of humanity. With all the problems facing our planet and the fact that we can make a difference with our actions, it is imperative to be able to see beyond the smoke-screens, dissect the fake reports, acknowledge the facts, face the choices and solutions, and do something about them. Science seems to play an important role in all of this, and for us to be able to play a constructive part in the choice-making process, we must speak its language, at least in the most basic level. To do this requires us to read scientific literature. How does one go about reading a science textbook?

Q: My 11-year-old sixth-grader seems to do very well on her homework and gets good grades in most of her classes because of this. However, when it comes to quizzes and tests, she seems to “freeze up.” I’ve heard of test anxiety and don’t know whether this is what’s occurring or if she’s just not studying appropriately for her tests. How can I tell the difference between true test anxiety and poor studying? A: True test anxiety is really quite rare. For this condition, psychologists generally suggest relaxation techniques, getting enough sleep the night before and not cramming for the test, among other remedies.

You tell your child with attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD) or learning disabilities to finish his snack and start his homework , only to find him a few minutes later shooting baskets in the driveway. You assume that he got distracted or, worse, chose to ignore you. In truth, it might be his memory that's to blame -- and forgetfulness can cause school problems for children with ADHD and learning disabilities . Many children with ADHD have trouble with their working memory -- the ability to keep information in mind so it's available for use.

The High Cost of Over-Packed Curriculum Standards For 21st century success, students will need skill sets far beyond those that are mandated in the densely packed standards -- and that's evaluated on bubble tests. In the near future, success will depend on accelerated rates of information acquisition. And we need to help students develop the skill sets to analyze new information as it becomes available, to flexibly adapt when facts are revised, and to be technologically fluent (as new technology becomes available).
