Synopsis

Your Guide to College Success Concise Media Edition by Santrock, HALONEN

Authored by John Santrock, a prominent developmental psychologist, and Jane Halonen, an educational leader in critical thinking, this concise text and CD-ROM combine together to appeal to instructors who want to emphasize student self-awareness in the pursuit of college success goals, as well as active learning strategies. Within the 10-chapter text, the author's have developed six themes that impact students' success. They have developed an innovative visual map: the Six-Point Model of Success. Santrock and Halonen introduce these themes in Chapter 1 and then integrate them throughout the book. The themes are: 1. Develop Meaningful Values; 2. Set Goals, Plan, and Monitor; 3. Get Motivated and Take Responsibility; 4. Think and Learn; 5. Build Self-Esteem and Confidence; and 6. Explore Careers. Each subsequent chapter integrates the themes in the chapter's content. At the end of each chapter, a Learning Portfolio includes: self-assessments, journal activities, and the Point to Success goal-setting exercise. This valuable Learning Portfolio will help students record their reflections and track their success through the course. Each chapter also contains a carefully chosen self-assessment that helps the student identify areas they need to focus their skills. An accompanying CD-ROM is packaged free with every new text and is a valuable addition to the learning resources this book offers. The CD-ROM contains electronic versions of the self-assessments from the book (and some are additional!), My Journal activities, Point to Success exercises, case studies for in-class or journal discussion, and additional material on the use of computers.
