I am using a textbook this summer with my summer bridge class from
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates:  Motivation and Learning Strategies for
College Success A Self-Management Approach 2nd edition.  The author is
Myron H. Dembo.  The text provides a context for students to discover
the connection between "skill and will."
