Brain-Based Teaching Techniques to Increase Retention, Application, and Transfer

Research shows that desirable difficulties as achieved with spaced repetition, interleaving, and retrieval (SIR) have positive long-term impacts on student learning, because the learning sticks. This book guides you through these three techniques for a more brain-compatible classroom geared toward student success.

Benefits

  • Understand the SIR techniques that support a brain-compatible classroom
  • Use activities to better implement SIR in the classroom
  • Understand the importance of utilizing repetition and interleaving alongside retrieval
  • Increase student achievement
  • Reflect on their own growth and success in implementing SIR techniques
