The purpose of this chapter is two-fold. First, the chapter lays out the rationale for the Handbook and why it is essential given the conceptual, operational, and analytic difficulties associated with strategic processing in the literature. This is especially salient given the entanglement of metacognition, self-regulation, and the self-regulation learning literature with the strategic processing literature. Second, the chapter outlines how each section, and each chapter within a section, serves to help the reader more deeply understand the historical aspects of research on strategies and strategic processing, contemporary research on the topic, and, finally, how research on strategies and strategic processing can progress to help us better understand how they relate to task and problem-solving outcomes.
