Learner Strategies: The Role of the Teacher.
Cohen, Andrew D.
Publications addressing the training of learners and the improvement of learning strategies are reviewed. This literature includes materials directed at the learner himself and at teachers, who are in turn expected to pass insights on to the learners. The literature also includes both formal language training techniques and the experiential learning of language. The publications include general study skills guides, a guidebook for self-instruction, a guide specifically for language learning, a monograph for Peace Corps volunteers, an English-as-a-Second-Language learner training course, teacher guides on learning strategies, learning styles, program reports emphasizing autonomous and self-directed instruction in several countries, learner training textbooks, and a prospective book on the role of the teacher in learner training. It is concluded that the current focus on learning strategies and the shift in teacher roles does not diminish the need for the teacher but rather increases it, requiring extra teacher attention to the support of more effective learning.
