Student Achievement Series: Human Relations focuses on the immediate personal application of human relations principles and practices. The SAS Edition combines the authors' innovative "Total Person" approach toward the field with an emphasis on real-world application. Topics include effective communication, self-development, ways to help students achieve insight, knowledge and the relationship skills needed to deal with a wide range of people-related problems, diversity, and strategies that can be used to resolve work/life tensions. The Student Achievement Series was developed in partnership with over 600 teachers and students from across the country to meet the learning, study, and assessment goals necessary for student success. Through extensive research and focus groups conducted with a diverse cross-section of students, Human Relations presents a groundbreaking solution for skills mastery, understanding, and retention. Feedback from students has been instrumental in all aspects of development--from design and pedagogy to testing and assessment to title and packaging. These elements culminate in a textbook program that reflects the way students learn and study best.
