The Learning Strategies: Helping Students Learn How To Learn.
Tsuchida, Masato
This paper discusses how language teachers can teach students how to learn using several approaches to learning strategies. The first section describes current English language teaching in Japan. The second section discusses the theoretical background of learning strategies, looking at cognitive learning models, which emphasize learner's mental processes, and social-cognitive models, which investigate the roles of interaction between individuals and group processes in learning. The third section illustrates the learning strategies in the metacognitive model of strategic learning, focusing on the planning process, monitoring process, problem solving process, evaluating process, and strategies for memorization. The fourth section highlights practical suggestions for classroom application, looking at the selection of learning strategies, instructional framework, learning styles, and choice of instructional language. The fifth section presents a lesson plan for a high school student's first day of school. The paper concludes that once teachers succeed in teaching students to appreciate the effectiveness of strategies, students will be able to use them as powerful tools whenever they need to learn something, and eventually, they will become lifetime learners.
