Efficient memory retaining
Assignment: Ways to retain memory efficiently
Reference: Schudde, L.(2010) The Cause,Effect Of Campus Residency
On College Student Retention.The University of Wisconsin. Madison.
Summary:The assignment entails what students should do toretain the class teachings they have.
MajorClaim: The retention ability of students is dependent on three
parties:the students, the teachers, and the policy maker
ina school(school administration)
Rationale: Students have a very crucial role they play in their class work
Retentionability. They have to own the whole learning process
shouldbe very vibrant and have self-motivation in this learning
Instructorsand other responsible stakeholders should keep in mind
thatthe ability of students to retain new instructions includes:
Exercise and assessments.
Encouraging routine tasks
Ensuring there are proper student welfare and support strategies.
Advocating for peer teaching and self-tutoring among pupils.
Giving student motivation upon completion of specific tasks such as awards.
Advising students on the proper diet.
Use of pictures and colors in teaching.
Assessingyour students will help them to develop a habit of remindingthemselves what they were taught keeping in mind that they
areexpected to present it at some time. Scientists discovered that some
Concretediets of food improved the memory capacity of pupils (Schudde, 2010).
Theoil of fried tilapia fish, for instance, was found out to be a veryhelpful diet especially to young people below thirty. It raises thememory retention ability by 20%. Similarly, milk, eggs, liver,peanuts and fatty foods containing choline were found to boost memory(Steven, 1982).
Evaluation:Like the author said, the choice of diet and teaching material highly
affectsstudents retention ability of class work.
My Response:Use of colors, pictures and charts while teaching gives the student
Avivid impression of what is being taught. Such impressions
gottenfrom figures and colors are easy to remember.
My Application:In a scenario where I`m teaching students in my class, I must
ensurethat I make the students and the administration sector entirely
awareof my strategies to improve student`s retention capacity.
