Community college students face a unique range of challenges. This supplement, which can be packaged with any Houghton Mifflin Student Success program, serves as a guide for community college students as they deal with issues such as returning to school after a long time off, balancing a full-time job and family with the demands of a college education, or coping with learning disabilities.Developed to be flexible and user friendly, the text allows students to pick and choose articles and topics that address their own personal challenges in beginning their education. Articles--covering topics such as finding your way around campus or telling your boss that you've decided to return to school--can be taught in any order and can fit into any syllabus. Written with a straightforward, friendly style, the text effectively identifies and addresses the challenges community college students face while guiding them toward taking charge of their own success.
