Learning Strategy Training Program: Paraphrasing Strategy for Effective Learning. Final Report for Period January 1974-May 1975.
Dansereau, Donald F.; And Others
This report presents an effective, integrated learning strategy program emphasizing a connection technique that uses paraphrasing. Components were derived from a review of the educational and psychological literature and from an analysis of responses to the learning strategy inventory, which were conducted during this same research effort. (See SO 008 594 for a report on the inventory.) Also, two other training packages (visual imagery and question-answer connection) were evaluated along with this package in a controlled experiment. (See SO 008 593 for discussion of the controlled experiment.) The results of this experiment showed a 55 percent improvement in long-term retention when using paraphrasing for the trained group, compared with an untrained control group. With appropriate insertion of blank pages for answers, this report can be used to provide learning strategy training. (Author/ND)
