The Power of Strategy Instruction. Evidence for Education. Volume I, Issue I
Luke, Stephen D.

With this inaugural edition of "Evidence for Education," NICHCY launches a new publication series exploring the best evidence-based practices education has to offer. "Strategy Instruction" is a powerful student-centered approach to teaching that is backed by years of quality research. In fact, strategic approaches to learning new concepts and skills are often what separate good learners from poor ones. Considering that many students with disabilities struggle with developing strategies for learning and remembering on their own, a parent or teacher skilled in introducing this process can make a world of difference. This "Evidence for Education" looks closely at strategy instruction: its roots, outcomes of the multitude of studies, and its promise as a powerful research-based practice that results in improved student performance. Topics covered in this issue include: (1) Early Studies of the Good Learner; (2) The Strategic Instruction Model (SIM); (3) Self-Regulated Strategy Instruction (SRSD) for Writing; (4) Combining Strategy Instruction with Direct Instruction; and (5) Promise Beyond LD. A glossary is also included.
