Changing Attitudes and Behavior: Practice Makes Permanent, the second of the Practice Makes Permanent series, argues that school performance is directly correlated to student motivation. If school administrators and teachers adopt Jensen's easy, direct, and effective ways to help students manage their feelings and focus their attention, the results will be two-fold: schools will foster a cooperative and high-performing learning community, and students will succeed academically while also mastering important social skills.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this three-book series, John Jensen provides educators with strategies for helping students to "master learning with great pleasure." This goal is a truly worthy one since students' experiencing mastery and pleasure is the exception in America's schools and school systems. Jensen's philosophy for transforming children's educational experiences is powerful and his aim to help teachers help their students to achieve remarkable learning outcomes provides readers with a compelling view of what teaching and learning can be. -- Francis M. Duffy
John Jensen has penned a volume that offers a practical path to serving students better. With an admirable focus on the value of practice and the virtue of disciplined effort, he offers advice that educators and parents would do well to heed. -- Frederick M. Hess, director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute
John Jensen has penned a volume that offers a practical path to serving students better.

Waagner, educational consultant for Education, Agriculture and Technology (EAT), a think tank in Chicago, Illinois
This is the second volume in Jensen's `Practice Makes Permanent' sequence (the first volume: Teaching Students to Work Harder and Enjoy It, 2012). In this volume, Jensen (psychologist and educational consultant) highlights basic strategies designed to facilitate an optimum learning experience for students at all levels in the school system, from kindergarten to college. He specifies general, commonsense guiding principles. The narrative, which is somewhat didactic in tone, identifies salient elements that impede the ability of students to incorporate novel ideas or new material into their expanding repertoire. The key points stated within each chapter are summarized for the reader to reinforce an understanding of the relevant teaching strategies necessary for productive and positive change. This is a good resource for psychologists, educators, and policy makers within the education field. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. * CHOICE *
