Teachers can begin to address these issues by teaching the students cognitive strategies (eg, schema-based instruction, mnemonics) that help students focus their attention on relevant information, identify a given problem's structure, and solve the problem. The preceding chapter explored implications of research on learning for general issues relevant to the design of effective learning environments we now move to a more detailed exploration of teaching and learning in three disciplines: history, mathematics, and science we chose these three areas in. In the first article in this series, we provided an overview of cognitive skills, the mental processes our brains use to take in, comprehend, organize, store, retrieve and use information in the second article, we examined the cognitive skills that are mostly closely associated with reading in.
