Synopsis

Success in any endeavor is not a matter of luck, fate, or happenstance. And that is just as true about succeeding at school. This book will help you learn to look at your school experience from a new vantage point, one that allows you to increase your motivation and commitment, build your confidence, and take control over your educational experience instead of depending on others to get you where you want to go. How? You'll learn to take ownership over your education. When you take ownership, and only then, you will succeed - and you will be more likely to succeed in other arenas of you life, as well. This book will teach you how to do that, and do that well.

Megan Stone, M.Ed., Founder and President of Stone Foundations of Learning, Inc. (www.stonefoundations.net), has worked with students and faculty across the country for more than 17 years. Her company's mission is to provide the organizational strategies and study skills students need to excel in academics and throughout life. Her program's foundations are self-advocacy, responsibility, and ownership. Along with coaching students and families, she consults with school districts, colleges, and universities to better equip faculty to work with students who lack the tools to "do the job" of being a student and to build educational ownership. Megan has also created and written a college curriculum for students and faculty called the Ownership Series (www.pearsonhighered.com/educator/series/Ownership-Series/13402.page ). The series helps to reinforce the concept of student ownership so students are more likely to take responsibility for their success and failures in school and life. Before launching her company, Megan taught science in the highly ranked Edina and Eden Prairie Public Schools. She holds a B.S. in human biology and an M.S. in life science education from the University of Minnesota. Megan enjoys spending time at her cabin, being outside, and helping others. She has been married to her husband, Rick, for 19 years. They have two children.
