Written by Caroline Bentley-Davies, Sticky Teaching and Learning: How to make your students remember what you teach them provides busy teachers with a toolkit of practical techniques designed to make learning as ‘sticky’ as possible for their students.
During her work as a teacher trainer and revision expert, Caroline Bentley-Davies noticed that educators are clamouring for guidance on how to help their students remember the content covered in their lessons.
In this book, Caroline answers that call by identifying the teaching techniques that contribute most effectively to long-term learning. She then sets out how to deliver content in such a way that it stays in pupils’ memories for longer and leads to greater independence and better exam performance.
Underpinned by a blend of research and theory, the tried-and-tested approaches are closely tied to classroom realities that will be familiar to all teachers. She delves into the role of planning as an important foundation for achieving long-term retention and improved recall on the part of students, and also shares guidance on how to secure maximum participation – so that there are no passengers sitting on the sidelines of the lesson.
Caroline also shares a toolkit of 50 engaging, tried-and-tested strategies designed to help teachers ensure that their students remember what they teach them – and, throughout the book, she provides thinking points and actions to encourage teachers’ reflections upon their own classroom practice.
Suitable for all teachers and senior leaders looking to improve their pupils’ learning and attainment.
