Handbook for the Learning How to Learn Program.
State Univ. of New York, Ithaca. Coll. of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell Univ.
This handbook was prepared for use in any classroom to aid the student in understanding how to become a better learner and how to learn meaningfully. This program is based on Ausubel's cognitive learning theory which places emphasis on the differences between meaningful learning and rote learning. To acquire knowledge meaningfully means that the learner must incorporate new knowledge into concepts the learner already has. The program is designed to extend, modify and elaborate these concepts, partly through providing instruction in new relationships among concepts that the student already has, and partly by providing new relevant concepts about learning. Included are: (1) the learning process, (2) the nature of knowledge, and (3) how to extract meaning from materials studied. Also included are instructions on how to make concept maps and the use of Gowins Knowledge "V". (Author/DS)
