PRACTICING COLLEGE LEARNING STRATEGIES, Fifth Edition, combines practical application with learning strategies theory, and is an excellent motivational tool for teaching students how to learn. The textbook focuses on learning strategies that are supported by brain research and neuroscience, and helps instructors to instill confidence in students who may feel "stuck" in their academic progress. PRACTICING COLLEGE LEARNING STRATEGIES includes ample exercises and the inclusion of a "Survival Kit" -- a quick roadmap that provides an overview of keys to academic success to use in the first weeks of the semester. In addition, the structured activities and exercises guide students in the reflection process to make the information personal and useful and to provide practice opportunities. In the new edition, the author focuses on putting students in the driver's seat, teaching them how to use all of the tools that are at their disposal.

About the Author:

For more than 30 years, Dr. Hopper has been involved with Student Success at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. She is a nationally known lecturer and workshop leader on topics such as learning how to learn, learning styles, memory, time management, effective classroom techniques, and using technology in the classroom. She is a frequent guest at the National and Fall Energizer conferences for College Survival and is active in the NADE and CRLA organizations. Carolyn's Study Skills website (http://capone.mtsu.edu/studskl/) has been visited by more than a million people! When asked to describe her teaching style, Carolyn says: "I am first of all enthusiastic about learning how to learn. I get excited about learning and hopefully my students catch the spirit. My classes are a combination of lecture supported by many visuals and hands-on activities. Skills for being successful in college are learned by doing. So, once students understand a concept, my aim for them is to develop the skills by practice and make modification to the skills that will work for them. A student in my class can expect homework due every class period. My style may seem casual and somewhat laid back, but each class is carefully planned with goals and objectives in mind. I am extremely demanding but would like to think that I am patient. I try to make sure that everything we do in class is backed up on the website."

Review:

"The three things I like most about this text are the BREATHE system and Survival Kit that do not appear in other similar texts, the presence of so much college-level content with a focus on learning about what learning is, and the conversational tone present in most chapters that invites students to carry on a dialogue with textbook material."

"Three top things we like: the student-focused conversation tone, the sequence of topics as they are delivered in the text, and the wealth of practical exercises for students to try out the skills information, especially the summaries, and What's your Advice."
