This class will consider the factors underlying academic success. Research on human learning and memory has discovered a great deal about how people can study and learn effectively. Many of the topics in the class will include specific ways to study and interact with course material that will improve performance on exams and papers. We will, however, also pay particular attention to other strategies, attitudes and behaviors that students can change to improve their success. We will look closely at important individual factors like grit, self-discipline, willpower, mindsets, motivation, expectations, values, and anxiety. We will see how sleep, exercise and relaxation are also important. Students will assess their own study habits and individual characteristics, and they will apply the techniques to specific examples drawn from their own academic work in other classes.
