Summary: The Canadian Fourth Edition of Becoming a Master Student takes this leading text to the next level. While the vision and proven content of Becoming a Master Student has been maintained, this edition has been rejuvenated with a more sophisticated design and supplemented with new, more academic articles that students will find engaging and intellectually stimulating. Other improvements include: a new, organizational framework (the Master Student Map), that provides structure throughout ...show more the text and helps students learn to monitor their thinking and learning; career application case studies at the end of each chapter that allow students to apply new skills to the workplace environment right away; improved integration of learning styles within each chapter to make addressing the four modes of learning easier; and expanded coverage of Multiple Intelligences and a new Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic inventory in to help students discover more about their individual learning styles. Based on input from our Advisory Board for the Canadian Fourth Edition, coverage of money, workplace skills, the world of higher education, multiculturalism, and the Canadian Master Student Profiles have all been updated to best address the needs of the Canadian student. In addition, new career-related information from the Conference Board of Canada's Employability Skills 2000+ has been incorporated to help students develop the skills most valued by employers. Writing rules and strategies have been updated based on the Canadian Writer's Style Handbook. New! Master Student Map (Metacognitive Application Process) feature provides an organizational framework that introduces each chapter and acts as a common theme throughout the text to guide students in monitoring thinking and learning. A reasoning model based on the Learning Styles Inventory, the map helps students understand why the chapter matters, what is included in the chapter, how they can use the chapter, and what to think about as they read (''As you read, ask yourself what if...''). New! Power Process: ''Discover What You Want'' establishes the motivation for students to act on their goals. This new Power Process is found in the Introduction. New! Technology chapter (Chapter 10) assists students in mastering learning in an online environment; finding useful, accurate information on the Internet; and taking part in online communities that promote success. New! Put it to Work feature--an in-depth article at the end of each chapter--shows students how skills apply to the world of work. Similarly, it discusses how skills developed in the workplace can translate to academic work. New! Communicating chapter--chapters 9, Writing, and 10, Relationships, have been combined into one succinct chapter on effective communication in school and in relationships through effective writing, speaking, and listing. New! Health chapter--now a distinct chapter, health coverage has been expanded to include new articles such as Developing self-esteem, Emotional pain is not a sickness, Suicide, and Warning: Advertising can be dangerous to your health. Money Management coverage in the new ''Planning'' chapter (2) helps students get started in planning their finances right from the start. Updated Learning Styles make addressing the four modes of learning easier. Each chapter now has four common elements to ensure that the needs of each learning style is met. Journal Entries at the beginning of each chapter stimulate thinking and help students understand why the material is beneficial; Articles provide students with information, ideas and suggestions to help them succeed; Exercises engage students and allow them to practice new skills; and Discover and Intention Statements and Learning Style Applications at the end of each chapter show students how to tie all the information together and use it in the future. Additionally, expanded coverage of Multiple Intelligences and a new Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic inventory are included in Chapter 1 to help students discover more about their learning style. New! Student Voices--These ''voices'' of experience connect past students with current students, and show how the skills in the text can be applied in real life. The Introduction has been enhanced by the Master Student Map and with the addition of essential advice on making the transition to college and locating campus resources. Goal Setting coverage has been enhanced by incorporating exercises throughout the text that ask students to re-think and refine their goals. Additionally, a new article/exercise called ''Setting and achieving goals'' has been added, and chapter 2 (now called Planning), covers more on goals. Discovery and Intention Journal Entry System asks students to explain the whys, whats, and hows in regards to their writing, and offers instructors a more specific and measurable form of journal writing than any other text. New! Canadian Master Student Profiles--including Roberta Bondar, David Suzuki, Carol Geddes, Carole Shields, Rick Hansen, Irshad Manji, Rick Lazaridis, Michael J. Fox, Craig Keilberger, Paul Farmer and more! ...show less
