P.O.W.E.R. Learning is the only research-based series with a unifying system for critical thinking and problem solving. P.O.W.E.R. Learning and Your Life utilizes this framework to maximize students' potential for success in college and life by addressing a diverse student population with real-world examples and applications in the context of the students’ career. Using this scientifically-based, yet simple and class-tested principles of the P.O.W.E.R. (Prepare, Organize, Work, Evaluate, and Rethink) system, students gain a sense of mastery and achievement as they move through the text; with the growth of their confidence comes the increased intellectual enthusiasm and personal discipline needed for them to excel.
P.O.W.E.R. Learning and Your Life is the only student success text created specifically for the non-residential, commuter student and campus. These students face unique challenges and as they typically work full- or part-time, juggle work and family obligations with school, and they may be the first person in their families attempting a post-secondary education. The focus of P.O.W.E.R. Learning and Your Life is on real application of P.O.W.E.R. strategies in a program-specific approach through the use of photos, examples, and activities tied to general education courses (such as math, English, etc.) through the use of P.O.W.E.R. principles.
