The Job: To Get Mental Wheels to Roll.
Williamson, Leon E.
The learning assistance counselor at the college level should facilitate learning for students who have not developed their cognitive and literacy skills. To enrich the process of discovery in student learning, the counselor can direct students in the following textbook activities: practicing basic syllabifying skills on technical and scientific terms in a biology book; verifying work by referring to a dictionary; using glossaries and indexes to improve the recognition of units of meaning in words; examining the full meanings of words in dictionaries--their prefixes, roots, and suffixes; helping students identify the concept categories of their experience through reading; identifying basic concepts in textbooks; and developing outlining skills through the recognition of general and specific ideas.
