This exciting full-color book is geared towards first-year or freshman experience courses,
but serves equally well as an additional resource in any class where
students would benefit from 'learning how to learn.' With its emphasis
on transferable learning skills, students develop and improve skills
such as reading, writing, problem-solving, using methodologies,
planning, working in teams, prioritizing, and so forth—the critical
and foundational skills that enable them to succeed not only in
college but in life and society as well.
Foundations of Learning
is based on the philosophy of Process Education™
and upholds the highest standards of guided-inquiry learning. With its
innovative use of student profiles and storytelling, as well as
exercises that encourage students to create a Life-Vision Portfolio
and use self-assessment, Foundations of Learning is a valuable
resource in fostering student growth and success.
