In the process of learning, the learners have to meet several criteria like collecting information, understanding the material, relating new ideas to prior knowledge, mental effort and strategy use. The teacher has to design the tasks guiding the student to carry out the learning steps. The tasks must prompt the students to engage in strategic activity.Instruction, demonstration and practice with feedback alone cannot mould the students’ behaviour but independent practice, multiple tasks, use of strategies yield positive results. The teacher’s foremost role is to make the students understand different type of techniques in learning, what they are for,when to use it and why it is important.
