No-Glamour® Memory

No-Glamour® Memory 

· Ages: 5-18
· Grades: K-Adult

Improve short-term, long-term, and active auditory and visual memory by using these strategies: rehearsing, creating checklists, identifying key concepts, visualising, chunking, graphing and charting, using silly sentences, and more.

The lessons focus on the strategies that improve short-term memory, long-term memory, and active working memory. 

There are two sections: Auditory Memory and Visual Memory. Each section includes a pretest/posttest and in-depth instruction. Students get lots of practice with ten different activities for each strategy.

The Auditory Memory section includes these strategies:

rehearsing
chunking
creating checklists
graphing and charting
identifying key concepts
visualising
paraphrasing 

The Visual Memory section includes these strategies:

chunking
using acronyms and silly sentences
defining and drawing
graphing and charting
identifying key concepts
visualising
paraphrasing
saying, tracing, writing, and drawing sounds 

The interesting, functional activities use classroom-relevant topics (e.g., social studies, language arts, science), so as memory improves, so does comprehension in academic areas. The exercises are arranged in a hierarchy of difficulty and require minimal preparation time.  

The book includes these student and parent handouts:

Enhancing Memory Skills
Checking Up: Which Strategy Works Best for You?
Strategies for Auditory Memory
Strategies for Visual Memory.
