The Analytical Student: A Whole Learning Study Guide for High School and College Students.
Maiorana, Victor P.
Designed to provide students with an applied, portable, and transferable framework for integrating academic and career/occupational studies, this books uses a "whole learning" perspective to teach students to think, read, write, listen, speak, and problem-solve within the context of their academic and career subject matter. The book helps students make lasting connections among the worlds of knowledge, working, living, and achieving--providing students with learner-centered, lifelong intellectual and practical thinking and communication abilities. The book is divided into five parts: (1) How to Think Analytically; (2) How to Read Analytically; (3) How to Learn Analytically across the Curriculum (includes chapters on humanities, social studies, and sciences); (4) How to Write, Listen, and Speak Analytically; and (5) Managing Your College Career (developing good study habits). Over 125 analytical explorations in the book introduce, explain, and provide practice in whole learning. Appendix A contains templates for analytical displays and narratives; Appendix B discusses whole learning for speakers of English as a Second Language. (NKA)
