Learning Strategies: Teaching Students How To Learn.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.; Baker, Belinda
A review of research on the subject of how students learn identifies various techniques that have been used successfully in facilitating learning; e.g., memorization, repetition, review. In discussing the differences between active and passive learning, it is pointed out that tactics used by good students include organizational strategies, summarizing, and creating analogies. It is suggested that to improve learning skills, students from their earliest years of schooling should be taught memory aids, highlighting, underlining and summarizing. (JD)
