"Prentice Hall presents . . . The Student Orientation Series" Our "Student Orientation Series" (S.O.S.) consists of various short booklets on special interest topics-an excellent resource for when an assignment or the course focus takes you beyond the standard coverage. The first two booklets in the series help students maximize the benefits provided by service learning and learning communities. watts, "Service Learning," discusses the various programs available to students; the difference between service learning and internships; how to find these programs; and how such experiences help students determine their majors, give back to the community, and find the right career fit. Connolly, "Learning Communities," explores various programs, why they have been established, and how students benefit from them. FUTURE TITLES: Additional topics of interest "Computer Basics" will provide the basic skills necessary for using the computer and appropriate applications to ensure oners" s success in college.
