Cognitive and Metacognitive Learning Strategies--Their Role in the Instruction of Special Education Students. The Instructional Methods Report Series.
The report examines key questions surrounding cognitive and metacognitive strategy instruction for disabled learners as a concept and in practice. The first three sections provide background information about cognitive and metacognitive strategies by defining terms, by discussing their relevance to special education populations, and by summarizing research. Section 4 illustrates how strategy instruction might be applied by highlighting three varied approaches that have been used with children with learning problems. Sections 5, 6, and 7 address issues that directly relate to implementing strategy teaching in the classroom. Section 5 discusses program components that are characteristic of successful strategy interventions, Section 6 focuses on the pivotal role of the teacher, and Section 7 discusses how media and materials can help teachers teach and students learn strategies. Appended are a sample record from the Information Center for Special Education Media and Materials database and an extensive bibliography. (DB)
