When Children and Adults Do Not Use Learning Strategies: Toward a Theory of Settings.
Garner, Ruth
Review of Educational Research, spec iss v60 n4 p517-29 Win 1990
The following five reasons for failure to use learning strategies are discussed: poor cognitive monitoring, primitive routines that yield a product, a meager knowledge base, attributions and classroom goals that do not support strategy use, and minimal transfer. A theory of settings must be considered to address these issues. (TJH)
