Why this course:

There is a “sticky” truth about how students retain information. Without deliberate planning and reinforcement, research shows that students may forget up to 80% of material within ten days of instruction (Murre & Dros, 2015). Fortunately, teachers can employ evidence-based techniques and strategies that help students learn, study, and retain information. This workshop focuses on highly effective, feasible, and efficient classroom practices that teachers can apply across content areas. 

Key Learning Objectives:
