This book takes a logical approach to student success by starting with stress management in making positive behavioral changes for academic and personal success.

 

Navigating Your Future Success  is readable and relevant to engage students in assessing their academic and workplace skills and develop a plan for success, starting with the critical foundation of stress management. MyStudentSuccessLab (www.mystudentsuccesslab.com) helps students to 'Start strong, Finish stronger' by acquiring the skills they need to succeed for ongoing personal and professional development.

 

Teaching & Learning Experience: Logical Learning Outcomes

How will students do well if they are “stressed out” as this impacts all aspects of their lives? Students will learn to harness stress in a positive way and set goals in their interpersonal skill areas to maximize external success skills. This program provides:

·        Personalized Learning with MyStudentSuccessLab: Whether face-to-face or online, MyStudentSuccessLab helps students build the skills they need through peer-led video interviews, interactive practice exercises, and activities that provide academic, life, and professionalism skills.

·        Personal Success Skills - Internal (or intrapersonal) success skills focus on how to do well “within yourself”. Stress management is followed by positive attitude, time management, goal setting, learning styles, critical/creative thinking, improving memory, and test taking.

·        Professional Success Skills — Skills for succeeding “within your program and beyond.” These skills focus on communication, group interaction, team building, job-seeking, and leadership development.

·        Effective Teaching Techniques — This book includes exercises to facilitate positive behavioral changes. Affective teaching differs from cognitive (theory) teaching, so behavioral changes are presented succinctly to show quick positive results that last.

Editorial Reviews

"Quite frankly, I think the organization of chapters is unique. There are not many textbooks that understand that the leading indicator of failure is not the 'work,' but the lack of ability to manage social and emotional concerns. The text also provides many examples of  how the information is applied in real life. Again, this provides avenues for increased student investment. The organization and unique emphasis of this text certainly makes it stand out. Likewise, there is a concreteness as to how material is presented; critical to developmental students. First textbook to acknowledge the severity of social and emotional concerns. Topics are covered clearly and concisely." --Michael Culligan, St. Petersburg College   "Clear and concise, this text is easy to read and follow. --Amy L. Johns, Moberly Area Community College
