Fosters self-directed skills and habits for success that students need

Challenged by technological, academic, financial, and interpersonal issues, students need the habits of success–persistence, planning, questioning, connecting, coaching–for their professional and personal future.  Keys to Effective Learning  nurtures these skills in students entering college by focusing on building accountability, teamwork, and critical/creative thinking skills that can be applied to any academic or workplace setting.


All features and exercises now incorporate coaching on skills such as initiative, motivation, and goal setting to support self-management. For example, in each chapter, Habits for Success promote problem solving and boost success. Each chapter also includes a unique and inspiring story that shows how a real person used the Habit discussed to meet a challenge and achieve a goal. Academic coaching language and powerful questions throughout reinforce the application of the skills presented.

Whether face-to-face or online, MyStudentSuccessLab personalizes learning to help students build the skills they need through peer-led video interviews, interactive practice exercises, and activities that provide academic, life, and professionalism skills.

Editorial Reviews

The Habits for Success, how they are integrated into the content, and how the text offers students the chance to practice them are what distinguish this text from other study skill texts.   --  Deb Manness, Wake Technical Community College   This text is a comprehensive academic success skills workbook with activities that will engage your students. . . . In the learning styles chapter, I really like the [two inventories]. They work well together to help the student get a clear picture of who they are as learners. -- Fatina Taylor, Prince George’s Community College   KEL has done an excellent job covering some very complex issues in an efficient, engaging and appealing manner. . . I strongly believe that Listening and Note Taking is the best chapter I have seen.  As for the ancillaries, I was extremely impressed with the break down of the topics [in the instructor’s manual], its map of the [PowerPoint] slides, icebreakers, and teaching resources. --  Leigh Smith, Lamar Institute of Technology   [KEL is] a wonderful textbook. The colors and graphics are inviting for student learning. It is written in a way that it is very much on the student level. It…[is]  interactive for the students and a text that they can . . .  take ownership of.  --Tracy Cantelmo, Youngstown State University   KEL is user friendly, developed with the developmental student in mind, and appropriate for their needs.  [The Habits for Success theme] is very positive.  I like the idea of approaching the idea of study skills as changing habits.  This is something that students can understand and it seems like a doable objective. -- Pat Grissom, San Jacinto College
