Abstract:

The report presents an effective integrated learning strategy program emphasizing a connection technique using visual imagery. 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 paraphrasing and question-answer connection were evaluated along with this package in a controlled experiment. This program improved long term retention of factual material and appeared to help lower reading ability students more than higher reading ability students. With appropriate insertions of blank pages this report can be used to provide learning strategy training.
