Description

Using visual memory helps students build verbal skills. Research shows that 10% of information imparted verbally can usually be remembered. When paired with a visual, retention goes up to 65%. Mindsketching is a visual memory strategy that helps students build memory and verbal skills by using simple sketches. For students from low-income backgrounds, whose verbal skills are already below those of their peers, this is a powerful tool to help build skills in areas where they are weak or struggling.

In Closing the Achievement Gap for Students Raised in Poverty: Practicing Mindsketching, Dr. Joyce Juntune explains why this strategy is so effective for low-income students. Dr. Juntune provides many ways to use this strategy in connection with content already being used in the classroom, such as in reading exercises and writing exercises, and in groups.

In this 1-hour course, teachers will learn:

  • The difference between mindsketching and drawing
  • How to build verbal intelligence through mindsketching

  1. Ana – DALLAS ISD (verified owner)

    Mindsketching is a great teaching technique, and a powerful tool for our students. I always thought visuals are important, but it is more than having images on worksheets. In this training I learned how to use mindsketching in listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

    I really enjoyed the presentation and could definitely see the benefit of this in most classes & content areas. I would have liked some more examples involving math, particularly secondary where we involve more formulas and algorithms.
