Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Having students verbally repeat information such as instructions ensures they have heard and supports remembering. With verbal repetition, learners also can personalize and interact with information, activating multiple brain pathways to move knowledge from Short- to Long-term Memory.
Use It in the Classroom
Watch how this middle school teacher uses the turn-and-talk strategy to engage all of his students in thinking about a question and connecting new material to prior content.
A turn-and-talk gives students the opportunity to verbally explain to a partner what they heard and understand, promoting deeper listening and understanding. Teachers can use this time to check for understanding and clarify any points of confusion.
Design It into Your Product
Developers can design tasks to encourage verbal repetition, such as learners recording themselves, which can be useful for retention and comprehension, especially when combined with written checks for understanding and questioning.
