New "Learning How to Learn" Video:
For the next month or two, my weekly blog series will be a weekly video series, and I will be featuring new instructional videos on YouTube. Including this week's video, I have seven videos posted on the site. This week's new video features a â€œLearning How to Learnâ€ Workshop I hosted for my students and their families on October 26, 2011. About two-thirds of my students attended this hour-long, after-school workshop, and I followed up with the families of the remaining children at a later time. Though I try to create rich, authentic, contextual learning experiences for my students on a daily basis, there are still times when they need to learn how to study and remember discrete pieces of information independently, especially as they progress through the upper elementary grades and into middle school and high school.
Helping children develop a strong repertoire of reliable â€œbrain-friendlyâ€ learning strategies is the focus of this workshop. This weekâ€™s video shows the introduction of the workshop. Over the next several weeks I will present the specific strategies, generally one or two per week. I hope you find this information helpful.
