"This book is a winner for any college student. It is superbly written and chock full of good ideas and just about every suggestion is 'actionable'. I have rarely seen a book so practible and so readable. Students will find concrete examples illustrating how to overcome potential problems. It is a beautifully written joy to read." Richard J. Light, The Walter H. Gale Professor of Education, Harvard University
From the Back Cover
Foundations for Learning encourages students to take responsibility for their education--to "claim their education"--and teaches them how to do so. It will help students understand how personal choice, attitude, and personality traits all affect college achievement. The authors focus on academic adjustment and metacognitive strategies as they naturally unfold during the first semester, pushing students to identify and nuture those skills, perceptions, and attitudes that will help them excel in college and beyond.
