COLLEGE READING AND STUDY STRATEGIES focuses on both reading and study skills. One half of the text focuses on skills and strategies that will help students be more successful in college. These range from motivation, time management, concentration, to test preparation and test-taking skills. The remainder of the text focuses on reading skills and strategies that will enable students to comprehend the material in their course textbooks and other reading materials. Reading and study skills can be taught using a strategic learning model. Students are introduced to various strategies, are shown that there are different ways to accomplish a task, are given an opportunity to practice them through numerous and varied chapter activities, and then are encouraged to use the strategies that work best for them. With a strong emphasis on self-evaluation (self-monitoring) and many real-life textbook and magazine excerpts integrated throughout the textbook, the book helps the student develop and identify the reading and writing strategies they need to employ to be successful in learning both inside and outside the classroom.Van Blerkom, Dianna L. is the author of 'College Reading And Study Strategies', published 2004 under ISBN 9780534584207 and ISBN 0534584209.
