Analyses were conducted to determine the effects of spelling strategy training and variations in study conditions on learning disabled children's metamemory performance. Subjects were trained in the use of a five-step spelling study strategy and then studied words in one of three conditions: (a) directed-study, (b) teacher-monitored, and (c) student-controlled. Subjects in a free study group studied words in any manner they chose. Results indicated that even without inclusion of specific metacognitive training components, strategy training can produce important metacognitive improvement and that metacognitive skills are an important component of performance.
