Applying Positive Habits

This  week’s assignment offers you the opportunity to think of developing  study habits that can guide success in your studies and in your career.  You read about how to take notes and process information in Ch. 3 of P.O.W.E.R. Learning.

Next, Ch. 7, reinforces some of this information as you read about how to better use technology and sort through information.

Imagine now that you are working part-time at the  university’s student resource center. It is your turn to provide advice  to a student who is asking for help.

Refer to the Applying Positive Habits  instructions for assignment details. You’ll be able to choose the  format for your assignment–either an e-mail for a written assignment or  a pamphlet for a visual approach. Either assignment you choose is  designed to offer you a real-life situation where you’re trying your  best to explain what you know and have learned
