Conventional wisdom has it that the way to achieve more is to study harder--put in longer hours and avoid the distraction of other people. Research suggests something different--study smarter, not necessarily harder, and use other students as a support group. This book provides teachers and counselors with tools they need to help students improve both their perceptions of themselves as achievers and their ability to apply effective learning strategies. Students determine what's right about their achievement and where they can make improvements by completing and scoring the Achievement Potential Survey. They check their interpretative and prescriptive skills by discussing relevant Simulated Case Histories. They enhance their ability and motivation to achieve by participating in Individual and Group Activities that focus on these topic areas: (1) Being Comfortable in School; (2) Getting Along with Others; (3) Asking for and Getting Help; (4) Goal Setting; (5) Decision Making and Problem Solving; (6) Career Exploration; (7) Study Skills; (8) Self-esteem and Personal Strengths.
