Motivation and Learning Strategies for College Success: A Self-Management Approach Third Edition
Finally... a different type of learning and study skills textbook!
This one-of-a-kind text teaches college students how to become more self-directed learners. Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve their study skills.
A framework organized around six components related to academic success—motivation, methods of learning, time management, control of the physical and social environment, and performance—makes it easy for students to understand what they need to do to become more successful in the classroom.
Study skills are treated as a serious academic course—theory and research to help learners understand what factors determine or influence successful learning are combined with effective, field-tested exercises, follow-up activities, and appendices that assist students in observing and changing their own behavior.
