9780132789516: Study Skills: Do I Really Need This Stuff?

Immediately has the student address an age-old question, “Why do I have to take this course?”, through assessment of strengths and weaknesses and critically applying what is relevant to their situation.

 

Study Skills poses assessment of strengths and weaknesses allow students to self-identify what they already do well as a whole and what they need to improve, then take shorter assessments specific to the study skill topic of each chapter. Chapter opening situations are presented through crisply written 'problem based learning' vignettes to engage in critical thinking and is referenced in key points to reinforce the R.E.D. model. Each chapter concludes with the reader asked to critically apply objectives and strategies and propose a plan for the student in the scenario, again 'problem based learning'. Priority management is a key feature and distinct from time management, as well as Information literacy coverage including social media and how to write for social media - strong and timely.

Review:

"This is an author that you cannot stop reading — he makes you want to invite him over for a cup of coffee and discuss the lives and plans of our most precious future — our students. He has the most interesting way of writing about academic and personal challenges while suggesting hopeful and positive solutions." 

--Elizabeth Huggins, Augusta State University

 

"It is a thoughtful, well-crafted book that simply describes common problems students have and offers some common-sense solutions."

--Dr. Cari Kenner, St. Cloud State University

 

"Respectful. Piscitelli described social and learning dynamics as if discussing them with a colleague. This makes his writing style respectful and approachable in that he never seems condescending or critical.  He explains to readers several phenomena that impact learning outcomes and provides self-reflective activities for the interested reader…and many will be because of this approach." 

--Chad Luke, Tennessee Tech University

 

"Piscitelli approaches study skills with enthusiasm and a genuine desire to help students build effective study techniques."

--Brenda Marks, Ed. D., Clackamas Community College
