A motivation and learning strategies textbook that bridges research
"Motivation and Learning Strategies for College Success, Second
Edition" teaches college students how to become more self-directed
learners. Study skills are treated as a serious academic course.
Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve
their study skills. The text does "not" offer "recipes" for success
or lists of "quick tips." Rather, the focus is on relevant
information and features designed to help students to identify the
components of academic learning that contribute to high
achievement, to master and practice effective learning and study
strategies, and then to complete self-management studies whereby
they are taught a process for improving their academic behavior.
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.
The text combines an overview of theory and research, to help
learners understand what factors determine or influence successful
learning and why they are asked to use different study and learning
strategies in the text, with field-tested exercises, follow-up
activities, and appendices that assist students in observing and
changing their own behavior.
A separate Instructor's Manual provides helpful information for
teaching the material; includes additional exercises and
experiences for students; provides both objective and essay test
questions; and includes information on how students can maintain a
portfolio to demonstrate their acquisition of learning and study
skills and guidelines for helping students complete a
self-management study of their own behavior.
