How can this book Learning to learn, Að læra að læra - með sjálfseflingu, help me?

Answering the student:

Doing well in school is important, but sometimes schoolwork can be a bit hard. There is a lot of reading to be done, lots of issues to understand, and often you need to memorize a great deal.

My book, Að læra að læra - með sjálfseflingu, is not only about how to do well in school. It is important to remember that it's not enough to do great at school; you need to feel good about yourself as well. We can all get lonely, and sad from time to time, as well as feel anxious.

I believe that there is a lot in my book that you will find useful. Be honest as you fill out the exercises, as you answer the questions, and as you find out what you really want. There are no wrong answers.

p.s. As you do the worksheets in the book you might want to mention some names, but you don't want anyone else to know who you are thinking about. Then I suggest you make some signs instead of writing the names, and only you will know who it is.

If there is something you don't understand in the book (as long as you read Icelandic), then ask your teacher or parents. You can also drop me a line at

Answering the teacher/supervising teacher/study advisor:

The book Að læra að læra - með sjálfseflingu / Learning to learn gives you some sound material to add to your work with your students. Here are texts and worksheets on i.e. learning strategies that can improve students' learning performance and at the same time enhance their mental well-being, self-confidence as well as improve their communication skills. In the back of the book you'll find several empty answering sheets to make a list of the books the students read in their free time, e.g., for writing dates for turning in papers, and as well as important dates for their hobbies and social activities at school.

Answering the parent:

If your child does not get a personal copy of Að læra að læra - með sjálfseflingu / Learning to learn at school, then it would be a great idea for you to invest in a copy of the book for your teen to work with at home. The book can be used as a self-help book under the supervision of a parent.
