Publisher:  Houghton Mifflin Company
Summary: Covering life and study skills with a focus on motivation and writing, On Course places a special emphasis on asking students to take responsibility for the choices they make in college and in later life. Downing's down-to-earth, positive instruction blends practical tips with journaling activities designed to empower and teach students how to identify problem areas and to focus on improving themselves and their life... situations. The Fourth Edition builds on previous versions of the text. Downing's distinctive journaling technique is woven throughout the text in a manner unique to all other student success textbooks. The text has been augmented to include a new section on financial planning to help students learn to make wise choices with money. Additional pedagogy includes brief articles on proven strategies for creating success from the viewpoint of respected figures in psychology, philosophy, business, sports, and politics. Case Studies for Critical Thinking, covering topics such as procrastination and collaborative work, gets students to apply strategies from the course to real-life situations. On Course is also suitable for developmental English composition courses. New! Expanded coverage of stress management helps students understand the nature of stress, it's consequences, and strategies for overcoming it. New! Technology Exercises offer students practice in using computer technology and the Internet, while the appendix, Using Technology for Success, now includes current network information, new technology, and updated URLs. New! A section on distance learning addresses the special needs of students learning in an online environment. New! The HM ClassPrep CD-ROM accompanies the Facilitator's Manual and provides sample syllabi, journal topics, additional exercises, quizzes, video exercises, and helpful tips and strategies for using the text. Wise Choices in College boxes outline essential study skills--such as reading, note taking, studying, memorizing, test taking, writing, and researching. These sections have been revised to include new technology exercises. On Course Principles at Work help students apply strategies from the text to choosing a career, getting hired, and succeeding in the work world.
