Working Memory Strategies for the Classroom

The Working Memory Classroom Strategies ebook presents a step by step approach to enable your students to better process and retain spoken and written information.

What does working memory difficulty look like?

Students with working memory difficulties display distractibility, short attention span and have trouble understanding instructions and linking ideas and themes.

What is working memory?

Working memory is a form of short term memory. It is the information that you hold in your mind just long enough to manipulate or 'work' to make any new information meaningful.

For instance, if I were to say to you repeat these three animals: mouse, horse, rabbit, you would have little trouble recalling the animals. However, if I then asked you to repeat the animals from smallest to largest then you are compelled to use your working memory skills. The mental arrangment and sequence of the three animals from smallest to largest is a more taxing and difficult task.

To successfully repeat the animals in order from smallest to largest, requires you to manipulate the information. You may visualize the relative sizes of a mouse, rabbit and horse and arrange them mouse - rabbit - horse.

Students with working memory problems don't 'work' new or complex information very well.

In fact, we know that children with working memory problems have trouble integrating, manipulating and learning new information. They fail to process or successfully 'work' information that is too complex or too wordy.

Why is Working Memory more Important than IQ?

Classroom discourse places a heavy burden on working memory. The difficulty begins with teacher instructions that are too complex for students to process, which impacts on their ability to independently carry out tasks.

Working memory difficulties jar and jolt all aspects of the curriculum, from learning new words and concepts to spoken and written comprehension.

Once a student fails to process new or complex information they have little opportunity to learn it well. So even if a student has a high IQ and good language skills, he/she may still struggle to learn new information because of weak working memory.

I've created the Working Memory Classroom Strategies ebook to assist teachers and parents to better understand how to maximize their students' capability to learn new and complex information.

Your students' ability to learn new information can be greatly enhanced by adopting key strategies that ease the burden on their working memory.

Also included is a bonus ebook that features working memory exercises.
