The most critical facet of preparation is setting goals. Goal-setting improves student performance by increasing student focus, confidence, motivation, and persistence.

Students have to identify and organize the intellectual tools necessary to accomplish their goals. Organizing refers not only to considering how they must apply the most appropriate academic strategies, but also to maintaining and applying good habits outside of class in order to manage their many responsibilities.

Doing the work, reading the material, taking good notes in class, and practicing the exercises may seem like the most obvious step, but it is an area where students often falter. Using P.O.W.E.R. Sociology will improve our students’ motivation and help them view success as a product of their hard work and effort.

In sociology, concepts build on each other, so student success depends on reaching a level of mastery in each section before progressing. P.O.W.E.R. Sociology helps students understand that their work is not complete until they have assessed their progress and identified where they are struggling.

Too often students do not stop to access their performance until after an exam, at which point it may be too late. P.O.W.E.R. Sociology prompts students to honestly assess how they are doing and where they may need to change their strategy or ask for help.
