Remembering Concepts

Teachers have concepts and information thrown at them daily. On top of that, they are asked to deal with loads of paperwork and accountability issues. When we ask teachers to learn one more thing, we need to respect how hard their job is and how much they have to do. Teachers will remember concepts they:

  • Learned most recently.
  • Have time to practice using several times.
  • Can take back to the classroom and implement right away.
  • Believe are relevant and important to what they are teaching.
  • Are provided constructive feedback on how they implement the concepts in their class.
