Step by step guide to delivering a semester or quarter student success course using the Power Learners Handbook for College Success as the textbook. Hundreds of faculty members have helped over 90% of their students gain the mindset and methods to succeed in their other courses. The Handbook and this Faculty Guide provide the instruction and exercises for a complete course. You can prepare and deliver your course without developing lesson plans, lectures, assignments and tests. Using a Learning Lab format, you can guide, coach and advise your students, as they practice best known methods for doing the work of learning--the two hours of study outside of class that is expected for every hour in their lecture/discussion class. You will have the satisfaction of seeing your students grow in competence, confidence and motivation as learners. As they find they have the intelligence and concentration to master college level work, their natural curiosity and thirst for learning will be rejuvenated. With the Learning Lab format, time will fly by in your classes for you and your students. Without lectures to prepare and papers and tests to grade outside of class, you will have time to provide one-on-one help to every student during class and in your office hours. Proven results from over 100 courses. One faculty member said, "This allowed me to do what I orginally went into teaching to do."

Author: Anindya Kundu
Publisher: Teachers College Press
How can we promote the learning and well-being of all students, especially those who come from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds? Anindya Kundu argues that we can fight against deeply rooted inequalities in the American educational system by harnessing student agency—each person’s unique capacity for positive change. To make his case, Kundu draws powerful narratives from a population of individuals who beat the odds to become academically and professionally successful. These strivers have overcome challenges such as broken families, homelessness, unexpected pregnancies, forms of abuse, incarceration, and more, to make it in the world. But it wasn’t simply individualism, tenacity, resilience, or grit that helped them. Rather, as Kundu illustrates, it was a combination of social and cultural supports that paved the path towards their dreams, harnessing the inherent power of their agency. “Kundu’s book is much more than simply an academic contribution to the vast literature on education and social mobility. If his core ideas are taken seriously, this book can serve as a resource to educators, policymakers, community advocates, and others who seek to address the educational needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged students.” —From the Foreword by Pedro A. Noguera, distinguished professor of education, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, UCLA

Author: Laurence Smith
This book is designed to build the confidence of adult learners and to present strategies for basic skills such as classroom learning, studying, reading, notetaking, time management, and test taking. Rather than saying, ''here's how you did it in high school, and here's how you do it now'', the focus is: ''here are your assumptions about what you think you need to do to succeed... here's what you really need to be concerned about... and here's what to do to deal with academic and personal adjustments on your life.''
