According to recent market research, students are less academically engaged than ever--a downward trend that has nothing to do with intellect, but everything to do with motivation, focus, and discipline. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, FOCUS ON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS thoroughly engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Staley, one of the best-known names in the field of motivation and focus, increases the credibility of the college success course by providing tools specifically designed for community college students. Thoroughly researched, the text covers the topics most important to student success and incorporates underlying themes of motivation and self-discipline throughout. Rather than talking down to students or speaking over their heads, FOCUS ON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers--directly connecting with and drawing them into text discussions. Many community college students today are over-optionalized and over-obligated. FOCUS ON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SUCCESS addresses those issues head on, creating teachable moments in every class period and concrete results.
