Content that is provided in clear, short chunks can support students' Working Memory and ensure students are directing their Attention to the relevant information. Simple, sequential verbal instructions can be complemented with visual cues to further support Working Memory. This is particularly helpful for students as they face more complex tasks as they progress through middle and high school.
Watch how these teachers give clear, concise directions. Combining these strategies of using brief instruction steps, providing visual cues, and verbally checking students' understanding provides multiple supports for Attention and Working Memory.
