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 this 1-hour course, teachers will learn:
- The difference between mindsketching and drawing
- How to build verbal intelligence through mindsketching
