SPEWS memory systems- resources?

Post by tigger3rd » Fri Jan 25, 2008 7:42 pm

I just saw Spencer Kagan present at the Brain Expo in San Fran and he talked about SPEWS memory systems and the Kagan Structures.
I got the Cooperative Learning book, and it has some good structures in it, but so far I have not seen them tied into the whole SPEWS/memory topic.
Is there a book that talks more about the SPEWS acronym for memory and activities/structures that corrolate with each of the SPEWS letters?

There is a smart card called Memory Systems that explains this further. The code is TMS and it is $3. There are two other brain smart cards: Memory and Mneumonics (TMN) and Brain Based learning (TBB). Both are $3. This is all we have published regarding those topics right now. You might also check out the free articles on the Kagan website.
