Language Learning Strategies Instruction in Asia: Cooperative Autonomy?
Robbins, Jill
Two models and techniques for teaching learning strategies to second language learners, particularly in the Asian cultural and educational context, are presented. The models are the Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA) and the Problem-Solving Process Model. An introductory section gives background information on learning strategies theory and describes each model. The second section provides both theoretical and practical information for implementing learning strategies instruction with the Problem-Solving Process Model. This includes a definition of metacognitive processes, introduction to the use of language learning strategies, instructional procedures, notes on scaffolding independent learning, and a sample think-aloud protocol demonstrating the model's use. The third section explores the utility and implementation of learning strategies instruction in Asian classrooms, and includes a description of learning strategies instruction in one university course in Japan, sample worksheets for a lesson, a brief discussion of the model's use to synthesize cooperation and autonomy in classroom learning, and notes on developing a learning strategies lesson. Several worksheets are included. Contains 23 references. (MSE)
