- Carry Around Bookmark is a bookmark made from printing the page which has one or two columns on it. If one column then you have your bookmarks to keep with you to remind you of the strategy. For the two columns print the sheet and fold it over to obtain a 'double sided' bookmark to remind you of the steps of the strategy.

- One Page Handout is a printable page (or two or three) that summarizes the strategy so you can follow the steps easily

What are Learning Strategies?
Learning strategies are organized plans of action for learning, the steps we take to learn something. They are done to accomplish a learning outcome, which is what we want to be able to do at the end of our learning experience.
