Enhancing the Academic Performance of At-Risk College Students via Self-Explanations
Calais, Gerald J.
NADE Digest, v4 n1 p29-41 Fall 2008
Research suggests that student enrollment in developmental level courses at the postsecondary education level increases annually. This is occurring because underprepared and/or nontraditional students' reading, writing, or math skills are inadequate to meet the challenges of college-level work. This article focuses on self-explanations as an instructionally effective approach designed to enhance the academic performance of at-risk college students. Implications regarding these findings are discussed.
