With readings incorporated throughout the text and a focus on learning across the curriculum, Investing in Your Education provides a unique solution for higher-level student success courses.

Students make significant investments in going to college—investments in time, money, and intellect. This text focuses on providing students with the tools and strategies they need to capitalize on those investments. By aligning lessons in academic and life skills with readings from textbooks, journals, magazines, web sites, and other news sources, this text exposes students to a broad range of disciplines they will likely encounter in their college career, and offers the opportunity to apply study skills to related readings.

  • Broad Discipline Coverage—each chapter focuses on a different course discipline to introduce first-year students (particularly undeclared majors), to the wide array of opportunities across the curriculum, and to provide them with the study skills and learning strategies they need to be successful in different course disciplines. The ten disciplines covered include: Education, Business, Physical Sciences, Psychology, Mass Media, English, Visual and Performing Arts, History, Math, and Technology.
  • DIY: Do-It-Yourself Activities offer more involved exercises that allow students to practice strategies from the chapter.
  • Teamwork Activities focus on group dynamics.
  • Lifelines present brief tips on using outside resources for aid.
  • The Hard Way case studies offer situations encountered by other students where problems are identified and resolutions found.
  • What Worked for Me case studies show the effective use of a successful strategy in a real-life context.

Review:

"There are a number of real strengths to the text: It is very current. It deals very well with the power of expectations that a student brings to the classroom, but this text helps the student to distinguish between what is already and what can be created."
