Toward the Ideal Study Guide: An Exploration of the Functions and Components of Study Guides.
Duchastel, Philippe C.
The orientation of this paper is toward conceptualizing the ideal study guide. Preliminary sections discuss the general functions of a study guide--to map out a course, breaking it down into assignments of manageable size, and to direct and assist the student in learning the content of each assignment. The general role of an assignment also is discussed by addressing the four functions of orientation, task direction, learning assistance, and self-assessment. The bulk of the paper contains descriptions, analyses, and examples of the components of an ideal study guide assignment, including (1) purpose, significance, and goals; (2) text references; (3) outline of subject matter; (4) questions on subject matter; (5) key words and phrases; (6) application problem; and (7) assignment test.
