But Change-Up the Locations PRACTICE Improves Learning Create a List Prioritizing the Most Important Things You need to Study First, and Stick To Your List Memory games, or mnemonic devices, are methods for remembering pieces of information using a simple association of common words. Most often people string together words to form a nonsense sentence that is easy to remember. The first letter of each word can then be used to stand for something else – the piece of information you’re trying to remember. The key to such memory devices is the new phrase or sentence you come up with has to be more memorable and easier to remember than the terms or information you’re trying to learn. Mnemonic devices are helpful because you use more of your brain to remember visual and active images than you do to remember just a list of items. Using more of your brain means better memory.

(Cornell Method) Are you wasting
your time?... Is this how you study? Evaluate, Examine, Explore Reexamine, Reflect, Relay Investigate, Inquire, Inspect Piece together parts Select, Survey, Scan Approach, Attitude, Arrange A
E Your students just completed a unit test. When you get their scores back you noticed that the majority of their grades dropped! What as a teacher can you do to help your students be more prepared by the next test? Scenario Teach Them Study Techniques! (4) Where do I start? What is the best technique? Should I only use one study strategy
or several? Each of my students is unique
will 1 technique work for all of them? So what is my intelligence? H.G. Theory of Intellegence:
1-Word smart (linguistic)
2-Number Smart (logical-mathematical)
3-Picture smart (spatial)
4-Body smart (kinesthetic)
5-Music smart (musical)
6-People smart (interpersonal)
7-Self-smart (intrapersonal) Test Time!!!!! Did you study for this?! Study Strategies "Studying is the process that is used
to decide what to learn
and what to remember and recall."
-James F. Shepherd (10) Note Taking A wit once remarked that "A lecture is a process in which information passes from the notes of the lecturer into the notes of the student without passing through the minds of either." (Gilstrap and Martin, 1975) Taking notes
Note taking is probably the most common study strategy. (8)
Five key skills to GREAT note taking:
a. Be selective
b. Cornell system
c. Recording lectures
d. Use guided notes
e. REVIEW your notes at least two times. Note Taking Area: Record lecture as fully and as meaningfully as possible.
Cue Column: As you're taking notes, keep cue column empty. Soon after the lecture, reduce your notes to concise jottings as clues for Reciting, Reviewing, and Reflecting.
Summaries: Sum up each page of your notes in a sentence or two. Cornell Note Taking Method Group Discussion Concept Mapping Using text Signals * Headings and sub headings * Numbered and Bulleted items *Underlined, Bold, and italicized text * Vocabulary words (8) Summarizing! Elaborative Questioning The process of drawing inferences, identifying examples, and forming relationships in the material being studied. (8) Study Skills Tips & Tricks! A study done at Cambridge University shows
that chewing peppermint gum Relieves Anxiety Enhances alertness Reduces STRESS! Improves task performance Make Peppermint Gum your EXTRA Ultimate Study Companion! Work Cited Now go forth and study well! Arteries are thick and elastic and carry blood that is rich in oxygen from the heart.
Veins are thinner, less elastic, and carry blood rich in carbon dioxide back to the heart. Let's ask some why questions.
Why do arteries need to be more elastic than veins?
Why do arteries need to be thicker than veins?
Why do arteries carry blood away from the heart?
Why do arteries carry the blood that is rich in oxygen? Facts that you already know very well and have no trouble remembering act as anchor points. The more anchor points you can connect to, the more meaningful the new information becomes, and the more easily you will remember it. (4) Presented by Emily, Natalie, & Christie
