Learning to Learn
The Skill and Will of College SuccessBook - 2008
For courses in Learning Strategies, First-Year Seminar, and Study Skills. Using a broad-based approach to college success that is grounded in current theory and research in cognitive and motivational psychology, this text shows students how skill AND will are both necessary for success in learning in college and throughout life. Strategy-based rather than learning-style based, it takes students from where they are currently on the skill-will continuum (high skill, low will; low skill, high will; low skill, low will; or high skill, high will), helps them develop a variety of learning strategies, tells them when to use them, and explains how to generate the energy, desire, and self-confidence to make those strategies work for them. Multiple assessments throughout help students evaluate their progress, and hands-on activities allow them to try out new strategies. Increased coverage of Life Skills is new to this edition.
