Learning to Learn: The Skill and Will of College Success
Scott Vanderstoep & Paul Pintrich
Grounded in up-to-date research on cognitive and motivational psychology, this text shows students how skill AND will are both necessary to succeed in college and life. This strategy-based text helps students move along the skill-will continuum by using various learning strategies and generating the energy, desire, and self-confidence to make these strategies work. Multiple assessment tools throughout help students evaluate their progress; hands-on, real-time activities allow them to try out new strategies. Chapter 5 provies an in-depth discussion on life skills.
