Based on Zimmerman, Bonner, and Kovach's (1996) academy model, an intervention consisting of seven weekly training sessions to increase students' awareness of and ability to plan and manage their study time was developed. Participant students reflected on the implementation of each phase of the learning model in their weekly journal entries, through which the researchers monitored and evaluated the training process. The results indicate that the training proved to be beneficial in that students reported frequent use of a variety of strategies throughout the training process.
