Description: With an emphasis on self-knowledge, and on building skills for college and career success, Connections empowers students to become learners who will thrive in school, on the job, and in the community.
Synopsis: Are you looking for a college success resource that speaks to the all aspects of a student's college experience? Connections is an innovative new text that offers the ideal balance of motivation, academics, and life skills. It starts with comprehensive coverage of the topics typically covered in the introductory course but has a unique emphasis on goal-setting, life skills and career planning. Key features: * Holistic, strengths-based approach with a balanced integration of motivational, study, and life skills. Connections is built on a foundation in positive psychology and a strengths-based approach, covers all topics typically taught in the course, and seamlessly integrates motivational skills, study skills, and life skills-and is backed by classic and contemporary research. * Prominent coverage of critical thinking and goal setting helps students achieve vital skills for college and life. Chapter 2, Critical Thinking and Goal Setting, presents these essential skills up front. Self-assessments and activities throughout the text encourage students to think critically about their work and themselves. Chapters 2-14 prompt students to develop their own Personal Success Plan.* Strong emphasis on college and career connections points students in the right direction. Full sections in each chapter illustrate how topics apply to the world of work; "College Success = Career Success" activities at the end of each chapter further emphasizes the college/career connection; and a special appendix focuses on job searches. * Content and features that connect with students' academic and life plans. Students often wonder how the material they learn in this class connects to what they're doing in their other classes - and their careers. Connections addresses this question head on: "Connections" in each chapter encourage students to think about how the chapter's ideas connect to their personal experiences, current coursework, and career goals. * Voices of Experience. Each chapter includes two Voices of Experience narratives - one from a student and one from an employee. These real, first-person stories show how chapter concepts affect the lives of college students and graduates and reflection questions help students connect the findings to their own experiences.* A wide array of instructor materials include an Instructor's Manual, a Computerized Test Bank, lecture slides, and an Instructor's Annotated Edition featuring suggestions for activities, discussion prompts, writing prompts, and further reading materials.
