Study Strategies: A Formula for Exceptional Outcomes in the Mainstream.
Kennedy, Clarice; And Others
Ten students (ages 11 to 13) with learning disabilities were taught the Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) study approach to learning spelling words. This study strategy was extracted from students who had won spelling bees and comprises five basic components: (1) physiology (students visually picture the word to be learned); (2) strategy (students picture the word on an object which gives them pleasant feelings, "chunk" the word into parts, and try to spell the word backward); (3) belief (students are encouraged to believe the system always works and the more they use it the more proficient they become); (4) feelings (self-confidence and good feelings are systematically fostered); and (5) extraction and duplication (students are encouraged to combine components individualistically and to observe high performers of other skills and extract their strategies). When compared to a control group, the experimental group achieved significantly higher spelling scores. These students were also able to generalize the NLP study method to other content areas, specifically mathematics. (Contains 13 references.) (DB)
