Lombardi, Thomas P.
This pamphlet offers guidelines for educators who want to improve their use of strategy instruction with students who have inefficient and/or ineffective learning strategies. Specific examples of strategic teaching are provided for improving general and academic performance, and suggestions are given on how to create a strategic environment consistent with strategic teaching. The pamphlet begins with an outline of the steps in acquiring a learning strategy. It then discusses strategies for improving general performance, including strategies in the areas of organization, time management, memory, test taking, social skills, speech, and handwriting. Strategies for improving academic performance in the areas of reading and writing, spelling, mathematics, and other content areas are then described. Suggestions for creating a supportive environment for strategy learning in the home and school are provided. Guidelines for teaching strategically are noted, such as use of advanced organizers, brainstorming, motivating and activating students, modeling, providing feedback, and use of post-organizers.
