Seven definitions, seven frequently asked questions, and nine references are included. The following questions are answered: Is it important to teach strategies? What is an example of an instructional strategy that could be used for an ignition system competency? What learning strategy can be used for this competency? How can mapping be used as a instructional and cognitive strategy? How can an advance organizer teach the VIMS competencies on engine repair? How can students use self-monitoring for this competency? and Where can I get more automobile mechanics materials? (Four sources are listed.) (NLA)
