Studying and Learning Techniques

Article for metacognition and critical thinking:

I really like this article because it’s complicated. It raises some important questions:

  1. Is there a difference between studying and learning?
  2. What strategies work well for learning facts vs learning how to respond creatively / critically to a challenge?
  3. Why is it important to consider an author’s purpose and intended audience while reading?

I think the article would be a valuable tool in both grade 9 and grade 12 classes, but obviously would require greater support in the junior grades.  The original posting contains additional images and can be found here:  Neurobonkers Blog
