School is for the most part verbal. It makes sense that students whose verbal memory skills are deficient would struggle. Research shows that is exactly the case for students raised in poverty. They tend to score strong in nonverbal intelligence but lower than their peers in verbal intelligence and verbal skills. In the classroom, this means they have a hard time remembering instructions, and they struggle to remember content.
In this 1-hour course, teachers will learn:
- The connection between memory and building intelligence Strategies for developing memory
- Memory activities such as sketching and sequencing
