Overview

College Learning Strategies teaches the skills and strategies that will enable readers o become life-long learners capable of knowing how to approach new and difficult material in college and beyond. The skills taught in this book will serve readers well in the future in a variety of learning situations. College Learning Strategies is designed to engage readers in thought about their own learning and the important role they play in the learning process. Because effective learning is a complex process, the authors have based the book on the idea that there are four key factors that must interact for learning to occur: 1.The characteristics of the learner (motivation, interest, beliefs, etc); 2. The tasks that readers are asked to do (both the level of thinking required and type of assessment); 3. The strategies that readers must use (previewing, annotation, mapping, etc); and 4. The characteristics of the books with which readers interact (textbooks, lecture, internet, and other sources of information). For those interested in developing their study skills.
