Abstract

As students make the transition from middle school to high school, they encounter a new set of academic expectations and requirements. Many students lack the ability to self-regulate and struggle to succeed in their new environment without effective learning strategies and study skills. Existing programs designed to help students successfully make the transition to high school focus primarily on generic study strategies and are not content-specific. This project examines the effects of incorporating organizational and study strategies into mathematics instruction in an Algebra 1 classroom through the use of an organized notebook and systematic self-regulation.
