This popular text combines theory, research, and applications to
teach college students how to become more self-regulated learners.
Study skills are treated as a serious academic course of study.
Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve
their study skills. 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-regulation 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 monitoring performance) makes it easy for students
to understand what they need to do to become more successful in the
classroom. Pedagogical Features include Exercises; Follow-Up
Activities; Student Reflections; Chapter-end Reviews; Key Point;
and a Glossary.
