1.   The use of Porpe (Predict, Organise, Rehearse, Practice, Evaluate

To be effective, any strategy training must occur over time and across many different content areas. If teachers want their students to independently employ a strategy such as PORPE, they will need to incorporate into  their lessons the time to provide intensive direct instruction characterized by examples, teacher modeling, guided practice, and specific written and oral feedback. Landsberger (1996) defines the use of PORPE as follows:

a.       Prediction

Read, underline, and annotate the assigned material. Predict possible issues on which questions might be asked

b.      Organize

Organize information to generate questions and answers. Create study checklists.  Identify all of the material on which you will be tested list notes, formulas, diagrams, text assignments, semantic maps, review sheets, and charts

c.       Rehearse

Begin by testing over key ideas, say out loud or write down the major parts of your outline, go back to the first point and learn the details that belong to it, repeat the key points and ideas plus the details out loud, test yourself!, move on to the second key idea and its details and repeat this process until you have memorized key ideas and details of your outline

d.      Practice

Generate a list of possible questions, take the “mock test” in the classroom or a quiet room, FROM MEMORY, write answers to each question you expect to be difficult, time yourself and “Grade” and compare with classmates.

e.       evaluate

Evaluate the quality of your answer; are you ready for the exam or is there a need for further review, examine organization again did you leave out key ideas or details? and repair and go through PORPE steps Prediction, Organize, Rehearse, Practice, And Evaluate.
