is a Generic Skill?
ï takes longer to acquire than domain-dependent (subject-area) skills.
There are at least three major parts of a generic skill. The most prevalent component is a procedure--a set of steps you use to perform the skill. But you also usually need to understand and be able to apply certain principles that provide guidance as to how to perform each step, or even guidance as to when to use which procedure (approach). Third, it is often necessary to memorize the order of the steps--a memorization component.
