A collection of practical activities designed to boost college students' positivity, resilience and organization.

Success at college is a result of character, not intelligence. Successful students approach their studies with the right behaviors, skills and attitudes: they understand how to learn and revise effectively, they're determined and organized, they give more discretionary effort - and they get top results.

In The VESPA Mindset Workbook, Steve Oakes and Martin Griffin offer students a structured way to work through 40 activities designed to help them develop the five key traits and behaviors crucial to academic success: vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude (VESPA). Each activity has been prepared with a student audience in mind, takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and allows space for students to record and reflect on their answers and to structure their thinking.

Sold in packs of 25.
