Teaching Learning Strategies to Language Students.
Chamot, Anna Uhl
An instructional module designed to help prepare college-level teaching assistants (TAs) for their duties in second language instruction is presented. The module focuses on how learning strategies can help students become better language learners, and on methods for sharing the secrets of good language learning with students. Less effective learners can learn how to improve their performance by using appropriate learning strategies. An introductory section summarizes the research basis and rationale for teaching learning strategies to language students. A list of teachable language learning strategies and their definitions follows. A framework and instructional principles for implementing instruction in learning strategies is presented, including sample learning strategy activities that can be adapted for any language. The concluding section summarizes major points and provides suggestions for additional reading. Contains 31 references. (MSE)
