Analogies for Adults Book 1

THIS BOOK HAS FIVE BENEFITS:

1) The book is an entertaining educational tool designed to engage adult
The four key words of each analogy are in CAPITAL letters. Each word in capital letters has a related photo to clarify meaning. Each analogy is set up to foster predictive skills, which are essential to reading success. The student must make a prediction of the answer based on the first three words of the analogy. A hint is given for additional help. After making the prediction, the student turns the page to learn the answer to the analogy question. This turns learning into a fun game.

2) Topics such as culture, math and words of position are introduced. With the use of illustrative photographs, students will be exposed to items from cultures and environments from around the world. Photos were taken in Africa, India, China, Australia, Uruguay, Mexico, Brazil, Antarctica and the United States.

3) An outstanding balanced education includes having students use their analytical skills to develop critical and creative thinking. These are essential elements in a complete education. One of the greatest strengths of a nation is the ability to innovate. This book can ignite your imagination. This is not your traditional book on analogies. The reader isn’t always limited to finding one right answer; with some of the analogies, several related answers may be appropriate. This gives the student an opportunity to explain his or her answer. Analogies are important because they change the way we think, read and write about the world. Learning analogies will not only benefit students in school, but throughout their lives by helping them see relationships between subjects. Grasping analogies is important for students at all levels of academic learning. For example, the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is used for admission to hundreds of programs in college graduate schools; sometimes it is used instead of the Graduate Record Examinations, and other times it is the only test required.

4) The book fosters creativity. It offers the student an opportunity to prove his or her understanding of the concept of analogies by writing an analogy with a hint and then illustrating all four parts. Students who “think outside the box” are the ones who go on to find cures for diseases, compose music, create art, develop inventions, and found businesses such as Apple, Amazon, Microsoft or Facebook.

5) The book benefits a worthy cause. All the profits from this book go to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to benefit sick and injured children.
