The third edition of FOCUS ON COLLEGE AND CAREER SUCCESS recognizes the varied experiences of today's students. Thoroughly researched, this resource covers the topics most important to success, incorporating professionalism, motivation, and self-discipline. It initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers, directly drawing them into discussions. Written by Steve and Constance Staley, two of the best-known names in the field of first-year student motivation, it increases the credibility of college success courses by providing tools that help students succeed. New for 2021: Empower your students to connect the dots between what they’re learning now and their current or future careers with “How Transferable Are Your Skills?” – a new MindTap activity that challenges students to identify how their personal and academic experiences can help them become career-ready.
