A Problem-Solving Approach (PSA) to Study Skills...A Sophisticated Teaching Strategy for the Reading/Learning Specialist.
Manzo, Anthony V.; Casale, Ula
In a problem-solving approach to study skills, the objective is to solve the problems and internalize the problem-solving attitude through oral languaging or problem-solving episodes. These episodes, or interactions, are the means by which students discover that "reading/learning/study" weaknesses can lend themselves to imaginative problem solving. The teacher acts as a convener to guide students through four levels of analysis. These four levels consist of (1) teaching students to delineate and articulate a general learning problem, (2) defining a student's problem in specific terms, (3) examining the student's intuitive means of handling the problem, and (4) selecting a procedure designed to increase skill while, at the same time, maintaining a compatibility with the student's habitual patterns of behavior and temperament.
