A Model for Learning To Learn.
Montgomery, Janey L.; McKay, Joane W.
It is the responsibility of the nation's schools to teach students to become lifelong, independent, self-assertive learners and evaluators of information. If schools are to analyze and evaluate whether or not they adequately address the goal of teaching learning skills across the curriculum, a conception of the components of learning skills and appropriate instructional strategies is needed. Once programs have been developed, evaluating the curriculum for learning skills is the next step. In a guide, student competencies for each of 10 learning skills were developed as broad general statements about the types of student behaviors anticipated as outcomes of instruction regardless of age or grade level. Current practices in the classroom which encourage the development of learning skills across the curriculum can be identified. The competencies are listed in an appendix entitled "Incorporating Learning in Curricular Areas" and cover: self evaluation; goal setting; time management; monitoring attitudes; motivation; locating information; selecting information; organizing information; communicating information; and memory training.
