Abstract:

The report presents an effective integrated learning strategy program emphasizing a connection technique using paraphrasing. The components were derived from a review of the educational and psychological literature and from an analysis of the responses to the learning strategy inventory, which were conducted during this same research effort. Also, two other training packages visual imagery and question-answer connection were evaluated along with this package in a controlled experiment. The results of this experiment showed improved long term retention, when using paraphrasing for the trained group, of 55 over an untrained control group. With appropriate insertion of blank pages this report can be used to provide learning strategy training.
