Teach to Remember
BOOK REVIEW: How to Teach so Students Remember by Marilee Sprenger (ASCD)
The importance of knowing how the brain remembers information is the primary emphasis of this publication. The author addresses the use of memory “lanes” which includes emotional, automatic, episodic, semantic, and procedural memory pathways. The graphic organizers and other memory-based utilities provided in this text contemplate and draw upon effective use of these pathways. However, the concern with this pedagogical resource is its strict focus on memory and retrieval as emphases for best teaching practice.
