We believe that all students have the power to become "smart learners" if they use self-regulatory processes to study more effectively. Each of us came to this conclusion from compelling personal experience as learners, teachers, and researchers. . . . We decided to write this guide to share our collective insights because each of us has profited personally from the use of these processes and has seen their power with students. The impact of these processes extended beyond students' academic achievement.
In this guide, we will illustrate how a self-regulatory learning cycle can be implemented to enable middle- and high-school students to develop 5 essential academic skills: (a) planning and using study time more effectively, (b) understanding and summarizing text material better, (c) improving methods of note taking, (d) anticipating and preparing better for examinations, and (e) writing more effectively. Although this book is written for teachers, its purpose is to empower students to self-observe their current study practices more accurately, to ascertain for themselves which study methods are ineffective and replace them with better ones, and to be more personally aware of their improved effectiveness--that is, we want to show them how to become smart learners. We will discuss how you can organize classroom and homework activities to achieve these self-regulatory ends and how you can shift your role to that of a self-regulatory coach or consultant. In addition to providing monitoring forms for each area of learning and checklists for implementing self-regulatory training over 5-week modules, we will illustrate exemplary interventions with specific case studies of students like those in your class. Finally, we will discuss the instructional capabilities that you will need... (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
