Description - Study Skills by Steve Piscitelli

Are students doing what is required to get them where they want to go?This book gets students to ask and answer this vital question. Written by a master teacher, the 2nd edition of Study Skills: Do I Really Need This Stuff? makes potentially difficult and dry subject matter come alive by integrating two critical themes for student and life success: critical thinking and personal choice. Each study skill is introduced and built on specific standards of critical thinking, and then the reader immediately practices the study skills they need for academic success. The second theme, personal choice, reinforces responsible decision making and follow-through to put potential and ambition into action. Ambition is the desire; potential the ability; initiative is the doing. Effective study skills will empower students to do what is needed to master their course requirements and this book will provide the necessary tools!
