What are learning strategies? Learning strategies are ways to help you remember not just memorize information when you read. Sometimes we are using learning strategies and are completely unaware that we are.
Think Alouds WHAT!! 1. Talk about your thoughts and feelings. 2. Think about and try to understand the topic. 3. Connect the information you have learned to your personal experiences. 4. Form thoughts, opinions, and ask yourself questions about what you’ve read.
Don’t be afraid to write…. When you read…..JOT down notes? Don’t worry about grammar! Don’t worry about spelling! Don’t worry about neatness! INDULGE IN SLOPPINESS!!!
Tips for GOOD Think Alouds! TIP#1 Think about what you are reading WHILE you are reading, not after you have finished. Pay attention to what you are think about when you are reading. If your mind starts to stray away from what you are reading…….READ IT AGAIN!!!
TIP #2 Be aware of words or phrases that are new to you. If you do not know what something means….JOT it down….Circle it…..Underline it……DO SOMETHING!!
Make a Connection! Try to relate what you are reading with something personal that you have experienced.
Let’s put the strategy to use. Abraham Lincoln showed great character from an early age. There is a story about when young Abe borrowed a book from a neighbor. To keep the book safe, Abe would store it in a crack in the cabin. One night it rained, soaking the book through. Abe went to his neighbor right away, told him what had happened and offered to pay for the book. The neighbor was happy that Abe had told him the truth and had taken responsibility for what had happened. Because of events like this, Abe was known for much of his life as” Honest Abe.”
OK!!!! What do we think the topic is???? Honest Abe? Honesty is the best policy?
What other questions could we ask ourselves? JOT them down!!!!
