Abstract

Today, academic assistance efforts are frequently geared to all students, not just the underprepared, with study skills offered in various formats. In this article, the authors describe a learning community model with the theme,  Strategic Thinking and Learning (STL). Results of data analysis indicate that participants of the STL community performed better academically than students in other learning communities. The pedagogical implications of the model are considered in terms of the quality of strategy instruction.
