Interactive video lesson plan for: Making Straight A's Study Tip # 9

Activity overview:

Repeat what you learned to someone else.
As long as you can find someone to teach, this can be a very effective strategy for learning new material.

Making Straight A’s Study Tip # 9
Repeat what you have learned to another person this is helpful in a couple of ways.
First, it gives you a pretty good idea if you know the material. If you can explain or teach someone else there is a pretty good chance you know the material. Second, it is a method of repetition that your brain uses to memorize new material. When you repeat to someone else what you are learning it uses many parts of your brain, which in turn increases the number of neural pathways that your brain recruits, which in turn increases the chances you will recall this information at a later date. Who can you teach this new material to? You can use your siblings, friends, parents, or anyone else who will take the time to listen to you. Let’s look at couple of examples. First, say you are working Math problems. Try to explain to someone else how you got your answer. Second, try to teach someone in your class how to work a Math problem if you don’t know how, or just explain it to them. Next, you can review flashcards with someone else. In Science you can diagram or explain a science concept to someone else. Be creative and repeat what you have learned to someone else. If you like this video please give us a thumbs up or share.
