Title:Teaching Study Strategies
Seminar:Teaching Mathematics Discussion Group Seminar
Speaker:Attendees, Penn State
Abstract:
This week, we will discuss teaching study strategies to students. There can be very useful, but also time consuming. The discussion will be centered around the paper whose title and abstract are listed below. Incorporating Study Strategies in Developmental Mathematics/College Algebra The purpose of this paper is to discuss the effectiveness of incorporating study strategies in a developmental mathematics/college algebra program. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected through a quasiexperimental methodology. Results show that students reported increases on the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) scales in study strategy usage, and this new strategy usage was supported by comments students made on open-ended surveys. A discussion of conclusions, limitations, recommendations, and suggestions is also included. A copy of the paper can be found in the site below. Copies of the paper will be available at the meeting. http://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ986274
