Tuning in to Learning. Third Edition.
Webb, Gertrude M.
This document presents a series of seven notebooks written to assist students at risk of becoming school dropouts due to learning problems. The notebooks explain what learning is, the student's role in the learning process, tools available to learners, how a particular student may learn best, which areas of learning need to be strengthened, and learning strategies. The notebooks are based on learning research findings from the Program for Advancement of Learning which was begun at Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts. The notebooks are titled "How I Prefer To Learn,""My Brain,""My Self,""The Tools Which Help Me Learn,""My Learning Profile,""Strategies To Empower My Learning," and "Where I've Been, Am, and Am Going." The notebooks contain background information, self-evaluation activities, and learning activities. Sample activities include self-assessment of learning styles, academic skills, and brain hemisphere functioning; tables to organize tasks to be completed; time management tools; and use of mnemonics.
