dc.description.abstractAt St. John the Evangelist, students showed a disparity between how they perform and how they think they perform. In order to determine whether instruction of what learning is and metacognitive reading strategies would improve science literacy and confidence in science; students were given instruction in different learning styles and reading strategies for use in and out of the classroom. Learning logs during reading, concept maps to assess knowledge and regulatory checklists were used to determine if student learning improved. Reading comprehension was measured before and during treatment. Students did not show a marked increase in use of these strategies after the treatment; however reading comprehension and attitudes toward science improved.en
