Memory-Friendly Teaching

Teaching the Ways Brains Naturally Remember!

July 21–22, 2022
All Grades

How do we make learning stick? Successful teaching is creating lasting memories for academic content and skills. But too often, our students struggle to remember what we have taught. Based on decades of memory research, this game-changing workshop helps you create unforgettable learning. Learn exactly what memory is, how we remember, and why we forget. Explore the 7 must-know memory systems for teachers. When we know which system is responsible for which kind of memory, we can target the system that naturally remembers the content we’re trying to teach. For each memory system, you will learn memory-friendly tools, strategies, and structures to help you engage students and cement each type of learning. Become a memory-friendly teacher with this workshop you won’t soon forget! WS# 33758
