From the Series on the Kansas University Learning Strategies
THE STRATEGIES FOR LEARNING PROGRAMME has been developed by the University of Kansas Centre for Research on Learning to enable students to learn study skills and content material effectively. Each strategy under the system is task specific and is designed to meet specific curriculum demands, developing the student’s ability to gather, organize, store and retrieve information, and finally express it effectively in writing. This programme is well suited for use with students with Learning Disabilities as well as mainstream students in middle and senior school.
Day I- Proficiency in Sentence Writing

The Sentence writing strategy is used to teach students the basic principle associated with sentence construction and written expression . The instructions in this strategy help them recognise and write different types of sentences.
DAY 2 -Word Mapping Strategy
February 18th 2018 10.00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m.
The Word Mapping Strategy – This is designed to help students learn how to predict the meaning of unknown words by identifying parts of words that have meaning and use the part to predict the meaning of the word.
