Skills for Success focuses on workplace know-how (SCANS) and prepares students for higher learning.
Skills for Success is the first content-based skills text to integrate English-language instruction with the teaching of skills essential to vocational or college-based students. Theme-based and interactive, Skills for Success emphasizes development of all four language skills through cooperative learning techniques.
All chapters focus on both academic skills and work skills.
The SCANS competencies provide the underpinning for all content and exercises.
Cooperative learning and student-centered activities help students monitor/take charge of their own learning.
