AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) has done an awesome job scouring the planet for research-based best practices designed to optimize student learning. They’ve sequenced and bundled these strategies so students could be explicitly taught how to learn. But, the strategies are great in isolation when used to support non-AVID lessons that need scaffolding.
I’ve searched the web and found several scanned documents and eBooks that teachers may find helpful; however, there’s no substitute for actual AVID training.
