Learning Strategy Instruction

Imagine that you are an ESOL student.  How do you remember all the new vocabulary you are required to learn?  How do you integrate the new language with the content you already know in another language?  What strategies do you use to be successful?

The CALLA Method encourages the use of learning strategies instruction for many reasons.  Language learners need strategies in order to cope with the dual demands of learning both language and content.  Successful ESOL students not only use learning strategies, but also know which strategies are most appropriate depending on the learning task. The more active a role the students play in learning strategies instruction the more they benefit.
