SRSD: Using Learning Strategies To Enhance Student Learning
Take some time now to answer the following questions. Please note that the IRIS Center does not collect your Assessment responses. If this is a course assignment, you should turn them in to your professor using whatever method he or she requires. If you have trouble answering any of the questions, go back and review the Perspectives & Resources pages in this module.
- Suggest at least three ways that strategies can help students in the classroom.
- Compare the characteristics of strategic learners with those of non-strategic learners.
- List the six research-validated stages of SRSD. What aspects of each would you emphasize as the most important?
- Imagine you are a fifth-grade teacher. Mary Ann, a student in your class, understands why she should use an instructional strategy that you are teaching, but she is not yet ready to use the strategy independently. Explain how you would help prepare her to do so.
