CONCLUSIONS
1. As a teacher we have to show our students all kind
of strategies in order to offer them the better one
which fits with their learning style.
2. Even the strategies are classified under different
names, the important thing the content of that one.
3. Under my opinion is important to follow the SSBI
once a year, at least as a guide. The teacher will be
informed about how she/he can teach the some
strategies to her/his students.

Strategies are not inherently good or bad


but rather may be appropriate or
inappropriate for a given learner at a
particular instant
