9780979802478: Becoming Self-Determined: Creating Thoughtful Learners in a Standards-Driven, Admissions-Frenzied Culture

Although the current generation of U.S. undergraduates may have higher test scores, more A.P. credits, and longer lists of extracurricular activities than students at any other time in history, too many of these bright young people are coming to campus without a strong sense of who they are and what they want out of life. Becoming Self-Determined provides research-based but practical strategies that college administrators, faculty, learning center staff, counseling/student health clinicians, disability services staff, and residential life staff can use to help students gain more from their college education. It can also help stressed-out parents and students get off the treadmill and view challenges and supports in college as a meaningful part of an education for life. Contributing authors: Jennifer L. Bloom, Sharon Field, Ye He, Bryant L. Hutson, Sally S. Scott, Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, Christina Fabrey, Theresa E. Laurie Maitland, Anna Merrill, Nicole Nelson, & David R. Parker
