Learning to Think, Thinking to Learn: A Metacognitive Skills Program for Student Success is designed to help students develop resiliency, self-facilitation, initiation, and executive function skills that contribute to academic success. The text is built upon a strong model of executive function development within a metacognitive framework. It helps students develop behaviors critical to success, identify and leverage their unique strengths within their courses, and learn how to effectively overcome internal and external obstacles.

Opening chapters introduce students to the unique framework for the text and explain how the workbook has been designed to foster academic success. The following parts guide students through a series of exercises that help them develop particular skills. In Part II, students hone the five skills in the executing group: initiating, planning, comprehending, monitoring, and evaluating. Part III introduces six additional skills: motivating, shifting, regulating, controlling, allocating, and task progressing. The final part focuses on the skills of self-reflection, self-correction, and resiliency.

Providing students with a deeply reflective and highly interactive experience, Learning to Think, Thinking to Learn is an ideal resource for first-year orientation and student success courses and programs.
