A Guide to Developing Learning Across the Curriculum.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
The materials in this guide focus on a variety of approaches to acquiring learning skills and applying them to eight content areas. The guide begins with a definition, an overview of learning skills, and historical background on the process of acquiring and applying learning skills. Ten learning skill competencies are defined: (1) self-evaluation, (2) goal setting, (3) time management, (4) monitoring attitudes, (5) motivation, (6) locating information, (7) selecting information, (8) organizing information, (9) communicating information, and (10) memory training. These learning skills competencies were developed as broad general statements about the types of student behaviors anticipated as outcomes of instruction, regardless of age or grade level. Each learning skill definition is followed by a K-12 competency. The competency is followed by specific student skills which illustrate possibilities within each learning skill. Methods of self-assessment and evaluation of the 10 learning skills are explained. Sample assessment instruments are included in the appendices. The guide also includes a step-by-step process for analyzing and evaluating whether learning skills are incorporated into the curriculum. (JD)
