ON COURSE: STRATEGIES FOR CREATING SUCCESS IN COLLEGE AND IN LIFE, STUDY SKILLS PLUS, 3rd Edition, was created for educators who would like to promote student growth and self-awareness while providing more extensive instruction in study skills. The powerful guided journal entries have been retained from the original ON COURSE text to encourage students to explore essential life skills such as personal responsibility, self-motivation, interdependence, and self-esteem. The Study Skills Plus edition engages students in a learner-centered construction of study skills knowledge and gives them practice in applying empowerment strategies. The new "Toolbox for Active Learners" highlights the process of learning how to solve academic challenges with improved study skills. The 3rd Edition also features expanded coverage of interdependence (including discussions of co-dependence, dependence and independence) and self-management (avoiding procrastination) as well as a "College Smart-Start Guide" that will help students make wise choices in the first week of college. The Annotated Instructors' Edition guides instructors to relevant exercises and materials in the newly revised ON COURSE Facilitator's Manual.
