How to Teach So Students Remember
About the Author | Comments
About This Book
When you teach a lesson, do your students remember the information the next day? The next week? Will they retain that information long enough to use it on a high-stakes test and, most importantly, will they retain it well enough to make use of it in their lives beyond school?
How to Teach So Students Remember offers seven steps to increase your students’ capacity to receive information in immediate memory, act on it in working memory, store it in long-term memory, and retrieve and manipulate it in unanticipated situations--that is, to use what they’ve learned when they need it.
Step by step, you will discover
We all know that some children come to school with their ability to remember information already firmly established; others are not so fortunate. By consciously teaching for memory, we can remediate some of these differences and help students gain confidence in their abilities. By doing so, we will better equip all students to be successful learners, reliable family members, and informed members of society.
