A Brand New "Learning How to Learn" Strategy:
This week my video series features the use of visuals, the ninth independent learning strategy I shared during the â€œLearning How to Learnâ€ Workshop I presented to parents and students last fall. (Iâ€™m skipping the eighth strategy, Pegging, in this video series because I donâ€™t believe it has as much utility for elementary students as the other strategies Iâ€™m sharing.) Using a variety of colors, pictures, and images can produce excellent learning results. In the video I share specific strategies to help students spell more effectively and better understand paragraph structure. 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.
