Study Skills. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Rafoth, Mary Ann; DeFabo, Leonard
This monograph reviews the research findings related to study skills and provides a limited number of examples. The monograph emphasizes the relationship of information processing theory to effective teaching and learning, and details the growth of interest in metacognition. It reviews existing programs that teach study skills and discusses the integration of techniques into content areas. It also explores the impact of developmental changes on memory and techniques used to enhance metagcognitive development, and it discusses the incorporation of study skills into learning outcomes. An 80-item bibliography concludes the volume. (JD)
