A Brand New "Learning How to Learn" Strategy:

This week my video series features movement, the sixth independent learning strategy I shared during the “Learning How to Learn” Workshop I presented to parents and students last fall. Incorporating movement into what would otherwise be sedentary study sessions makes a significant impact on learning. About two-thirds of my students attended the 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 “brain-friendly” learning strategies was the focus of this workshop. Over the next several weeks I will present the remaining strategies. I hope you find this information helpful, and I welcome your questions and comments.
