The following appendices are designed to help you plan, develop, and implement a self-management study so you can become a more successful learner. Appendix A provides you with the tools and assistance needed to apply the steps of the self-management process introduced in chapter 1. Appendix B includes 3 self-management studies completed over a 2- to 3-week period by students in an educational psychology course on study strategies. Some of the material provided by students was slightly edited to reduce the length of the report. Therefore, as you read these studies, you will be told when additional information was provided by the students, but not reported here. The topics of the self-management studies are listed below:
|Self-Management Study 1:||Motivation (persistence and management|
|of effort) -- written by Mark Flowers|
|Self-Management Study 2:||Methods of learning (improving quiz|
|scores) -- written by Fernando Barba|
|Self-Management Study||3: Motivation (reducing anxiety) -- written by|
At the end of each case study you will find a brief analysis of strengths and areas that need improvement. Remember, there is no one way to complete a self-management study. Be creative in developing your own instruments to assess your behavior and developing strategies for change.
