Strategy Notebook; Tools For Change.
McEver, Catherine
A detailed analysis of 76 major heuristic strategies or processes is provided in this supplementary text to the course, Tools for Change. Each strategy is conceptualized as a pair of active verbs which represent alternative, although not necessarily opposite, approaches to problem-solving. Some examples are: a) commit-defer; b) record-recall; c) assume-question; and d) expand-reduce. For purposes of this text, the strategies are grouped into the following eight categories: 1) master strategies; 2) strategies for set manipulation; 3) strategies of involvement; 4) strategies for manipulating information; 5) strategies for information retrieval; 6) strategies for dealing with the future; 7) strategies for physical manipulation; and 8) metaheuristics. The powers and limitations of each individual stragegy are discussed and exercises for using them are suggested. (PB)
