General Description

What if every student in your classroom found it easy to remember complex information? How would that affect their attitude to learning? What would it do to your test results?

Right now, many otherwise perfectly bright students are failing tests because they struggle to remember what we teach them. Disheartened by their results, these students quickly buy into a damaging myth: that they are ‘stupid’ and there’s no point in trying. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

In a PD session you’ll never forget, learn the secrets to making sure every student memorises your content – every time. Discover the miraculous workings of the human memory, the power of your own mind, and how to deliberately weave highly memorable moments into every lesson.
