Learning to Learn

A resource for teachers of return-to-study courses for adults. It is divided into two parts. It begins by explaining why past approaches for equipping students for academic success are unhelpful. The approach used in this guide is described by drawing on cognitive psychology, especially about short- and long-term memory, schemas and metacognition. Five areas are covered in (3 hour) "session guides": learning and short-term memory; long-term memory and revising; teacher cues and academic knowledge; libraries and the Dewey system; and reading and the structure of books. Each session guide provides a variety of resources. A guide lists the key points of the session and provides: a sample lesson plan with summary checklists; more detailed background information on the main ideas for the session; teaching notes to suggest ways of presenting the course; and, copies of homework sheets, handouts and overhead projector slides.
