Back to Memory at Work in the Classroom: Strategies to Help Underachieving Students
Why do some students struggle to understand and retain information, while other students don’t? This book answers that question and explains how to support learners—especially struggling learners—with instruction that responds effectively to their struggles with memory and its essential role in the learning process. Using real-life examples, the authors guide you through these memory systems and the teaching techniques that support them:
- Working Memory: the gateway for all learning.
- Executive Function: the ability to independently interpret, strategize, and problem solve.
- Semantic Memory: the facts students remember.
- Episodic Memory: personal memories of specific events
- Autobiographical Memory: your students' self-image and sense of self.
Deepen your understanding of the central role that memory plays in academic learning and discover classroom practices that align with the functioning of memory and the ways students learn.
