Knowing how to learn is an important part of the learning
Strategies for Efficient Study empowers the individual in
the learning process by teaching clear, simple, explicit strategies that
will improve performance.
strategies are designed to engage the thinking of the student in the learning process. The
program includes strategies for following directions, reading
(fiction and non-fiction), spelling, writing, math, advance organizers, charting, English grammar, notetaking during class,
foreign language, vocabulary development, proofing and test-taking. All the
strategies produce review systems to support retention over time.
Though all students can use the program to improve their performance,research has shown that this particular
package of strategies resulted in significant improvement in actual classroom performance for students with attention
problems and learning disabilities.
The strategy training develops an understanding of the basic concepts that support learning and test-taking. Each strategy
is designed to make the student do the same type of processing
successful students do. Focus, memory, attention, processing, comprehension and task completion are supported through the use
of the strategies.
A Windows PC based software package is also available, which
consists of a set of interactive software tools based on the
Independent Strategies for Efficient Study learning program.
