WAYS TO MAKE LISTENING AND LEARNING EASY By Ande Olson, SLP
There are many ways to learn information. Here are the two most common methods that students use to listen and learn………….
1.Hear it!---when the teacher tells the class information. 2.Read it!---when students read the information in the text book.
Did you know there are at least 5 more strategies you can use to make learning easier?
These include: 3. Write it! Write down important details during class discussion, especially if the teacher says something twice or louder. Write your own study guide. Include words in bold type, definitions, lists and main ideas. Highlight and star key words.
4. Say it out loud! Some people learn best when they say information out loud, especially if they rehearse it in a rhythmic way. Teach information to someone else.
5. Associate it with something familiar. Compare new information to ideas you already know. Use acronyms (the first letters in a list of words made into a word you can remember. “Chunk” the information into groups, songs, raps, etc.
6. Draw it! It’s amazing how even stick figure drawings can help your ability to remember information. People who learn best visually find this method of learning especially helpful.
7. Preview it! Whenever possible, skim or read the chapter BEFORE the teacher presents it in class. You will be amazed at how much better you understand it when you hear it. Glancing over the first and last sentences in paragraphs, the bold print, and picture captions is especially helpful.
