For courses in Student Success, First Year seminar, Study skills, and for any program or individual seeking strategies for English language learning success. 

These materials support students for whom English is not a first language. This chapter-sized segment provides success strategies specific to English language learners’ needs and circumstances.

In a concise and focused one-chapter-sized segment, customizable within the Keys to Success series of textbooks as well as elsewhere, these materials support the particular needs of students for whom English is not a first language, whether they are identified as ESL (English as a Second Language), ELL (English Language Learner), LEP (Limited English Proficiency), or other student classifications. Students who are learning English have the additional challenge of language on top of the task of learning college-level material. In addition to providing support for the challenging aspects of learning English while in college, these materials emphasize the strengths and benefits these students have and can use, helping to combat the uncertainty and low self-esteem such students often experience. The materials also address cultural adjustment and success beyond graduation.

These materials are designed to increase the engagement and retention of the English language learner, benefiting learners as well as institutions.
