Synopsis

Your Guide to College Success Media Edition Strategies for Achieving Your Goals by John W. Santrock, Jane (James Madison University) Halonen

Authored by John Santrock, a prominent developmental psychologist, and Jane Halonen, an educational leader in critical thinking, this text and CD-ROM package appeals to instructors who want to emphasize student self-awareness in pursuit of college success goals as well as active learning strategies. The authors pull together six main themes that affect students' success in an innovative visual map, the unique Six-Point Model of Success. Santrock and Halonen introduce these themes in Chapter 1 and then weave them throughout the book, providing students with a guide to success. These themes are: Develop Meaningful Values; Set Goals, Plan, and Monitor; Get Motivated and Take Responsibility; Think and Learn; Build Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence; and, Explore Careers. A Learning Portfolio, including journal activities, self-assessments and the Point to Success goal setting exercise, is included at the end of each chapter to help students record their reflections and track their success through the course. Providing you with maximum flexibility, Santrock and Halonen's text is now available in a four-color modular version. The newly designed CD-ROM that is packaged free with every text is a valuable addition to the learning resources this book offers. The CD-ROM contains electronic versions of the self-assessments, additional self-assessments, My Journal, Point to Success exercises, case studies for in-class or journal discussion and a new section on career exploration.

Reviews

Santrock and Halonen use active learning strategies in every chapter. Self-assessments allow students to analyze where they stand...The whole focus is to guide the student to become an active and independent learner. The authors want the student to be active and to be involved.
