If the assignment isn’t finished, mark what has been done.
Simple recitation is useful for learning facts eg multiplication tables, lists. (Items at the beginning and end of a list are most likely to be recalled so have several short lists rather than one long one.)
Relate information to a theme or make up a story incorporating the information
Group information into sub-units eg, the phone number 82164532 (8 bits) might be reduced to 3 bits (821 645 32); the word-ending /e/d (2 bits) could be reduced to /ed/ (1 bit)
Create a mental picture of the content to be remembered eg, details of a story; a process, directions. Close your eyes. Can you see it inside your eyes? For some students this may be difficult and require guided practice.
Encourage the use of diaries, illustrations, charts, calendars, graphs, cue cards, concept maps, notes, flash cards, summaries, post-it stickers with reminders, copy of daily/weekly timetable, checklist of tasks to complete, calculator, multiplication tables chart, indexed book with often mis-spelt words, business size cards with telephone numbers, important information.
