From the Back Cover

Written and designed to enhance students' independent learning, this innovative hands-on text uses a consistent set of psychological principles as the basis for teaching students how to learn and motivate themselves. Students are encouraged to actively participate in self-surveys, quick practices, applications, assignments, and self-assessments to improve their skills. The book's unique content is organized around four major strategies proven to increase achievement-oriented behavior:

  • Strategy #1 Take reasonable risk: Go for your goals via manageable steps.
  • Strategy #2 Take responsibility for your outcomes: build a plan and think positively.
  • Strategy #3 Search the environment: Ask questions and visualize model answers.
  • Strategy #4 Use feedback: Monitor your actions and give yourself instructions.

Learning and Motivation Strategies was developed and tested in the classroom to promote ultimate life success. The activities in the book are further complemented by a companion website (prenhall/tuckman).
