Module 2 – SLP
EDUCATIONAL PLANNING, GOAL SETTING, LEARNING STRATEGIES, AND HIGHER-LEVEL THINKING
Learning is the fundamental mission of all colleges and universities, and it is something that does not stop after graduation. It is a lifelong process that is important for personal and professional success, but has become even more important in the 21st century. Currently, the ongoing growth of information technology, coupled with a knowledge-based economy and increasing global interdependence, is creating a high demand for college graduates who have “learned how to learn” and who can apply their learning skills throughout life in different occupational roles and cultural contexts.
Chapter 5 of Thriving at Trident provides you with numerous success strategies that will aid in deeper learning. This assignment will require you to self-assess your learning habits to aid developing good learning strategies. In order to complete the assignment, you will complete three self-assessments.
1. Note-taking (Reflection 5.5, p. 97)
2. Reading (Reflection 5.8, p. 103)
3. Studying (Reflection 5.13, pp. 116-117).
Achieving your educational goals requires making strategic choices about your college courses and your college major. Having an educational plan in mind (and in hand) early in your college experience will enable you to explore your academic options and make a well-informed decision about your college major. Your major field of study should reflect who you are—your personal strengths, talents, interests, and values. Chapter 3: Goal Setting and Motivation and Chapter 14: Educational Planning and Decision-Making in Thriving at Trident will supply you with strategies for deepening awareness of your personal attributes, educational options, and career goals, and help you design a strategic plan to reach those goals.

Plan and Purpose of This Book This book is designed to help you make a smooth transition to college and equip you with strategies for success that can be used throughout your college experience and in life beyond college. Its goal is to promote the academic excellence and per- sonal development of all students—whether they be students (a) transitioning to college directly from high school or from full-time employment, (b) living on or off campus, or (c) attending college on a full- or part-time basis. Whatever your previ- ous level of academic performance may have been, or how many AP and dual-credit courses you have already taken, college is a new ball game played on a different field with new rules and expectations. If you have been an academically strong student prior to college, this book will make you an even stronger student in college. If you have not been a particularly successful student in the past, this book will help you become a successful student in the future.
One of the book’s major goals is to equip you with one of the most powerful principles of human learning and personal success: self-awareness. Self-awareness is the critical first step toward personal growth and development in any endeavor. College students who are self-aware learners, aware of how they are learning and if they are learning strategically and deeply, rather than mindlessly and superficially. If you maintain self-awareness about whether you’re “doing college” effectively (e.g., by using the research-based strategies identified in this book), you will have taken a huge step toward college success. ”
“Important achievements require a clear focus, all-out- effort, and a bottomless trunk full of strategies. —Carol Dweck, Stanford professor, and author of Mindset: The New Psychology of SuccessPractical, action-oriented strategies make up the heart of this book. Rather than
trying to figure out how to do college on your own through random trial-and-error, this book provides you with a game plan for doing it right from the start, equipping you with a comprehensive set of strategies for doing college well. These strategies are not presented as a laundry list of things you should do (and should not do) dis- pensed arbitrarily and pontifically by authority figures who think they know what’s best for you. Instead, the book’s recommendations are accompanied by research- based reasons why they are effective and worthy of your consideration. If you have a deep understanding of the underlying principle that makes a strategy effective, you’re more likely to put that strategy into practice. Furthermore, when you under- stand the principle behind the practice, it empowers you to create specific strategies of your own that are built on the same principle.
”“The man who also knows why will be his own boss. As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. —Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th-century author, poet, and philosopher
Specific and complete references for the research findings and action strategies cited in this book are included in the full-length version of the text, titled Thriving in College & Beyond: Research-Based Strategies for Academic Success and Personal Development (2020).
Preview of Content Introduction The Power of College and the First-Year Experience In the introduction to this book, you will learn why college has the power to change your life and benefit you throughout life. The first year of college, in particular, is a crucial transitional stage characterized by significant change, challenge, and growth. It is the year of college during which students typically experience the most academic difficulties and highest risk of dropping out; however, it is also the year when college students report experiencing the most learning and greatest personal growth. Students who take a first-year experience or college success course (like the one you’re likely enrolled in now) are more likely to make a smooth transition to college, experience a successful first year, and make the most of their college experience.
“Being in this class has helped me a lot. What I learned I will apply to all my other classes.”“I could really relate to everything we talked about. It is a great class because you can use it in your other classes.”
“Everything we learned we will apply in our lives.” —Comments made by students enrolled in a college success course
Chapter 1 Touching All the Bases Using Powerful Principles of Student Success and Key Campus Resources Like any journey, the journey through college begins with knowing what to bring with you and what resources to rely on along the way. This chapter supplies you with (a) an overview and preview of four powerful student-success principles that you can use throughout your college experience, (b) key campus resources to capi- talize on, and (c) snapshot summaries of important things to do during the first weeks of college to get off to a smooth and successful start.
Chapter 2 Liberal Arts and General Education What it Means to be a Well-Educated Person in the 21st Century The liberal arts and general education are often misunderstood and underestimated components of a college education and career preparation. In this chapter, you will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the meaning, purpose, and benefits of the liberal arts and general education. You will learn how the liberal arts curricu- lum and general education courses equip you with a broad base of knowledge and a set of versatile skills that can be used to promote success in all college majors, careers, and life roles.
Chapter 3 Goal Setting and Motivation Moving from Intention to Action Achieving your goals is one definition of success. Studies show that people are more likely to be successful when they set specific goals for themselves and identify the means (succession of steps) needed to reach those goals. This chapter supplies
you with practical strategies for setting specific, realistic goals and for maintaining motivation until you reach your goals.
Chapter 4 Time Management Prioritizing Tasks, Preventing Procrastination, and Promoting Productivity Setting goals is an important first step toward achieving success, but managing time and completing the tasks needed to reach those goals
