Strategies for memorization: mnemonic devices, evidence-based practice in education.
Strategies for learning and memorization: mnemonic devices an evidence-based practice. Mnemonic includes such techniques as teaching acronyms or a “peg word”, visualization, the use of music and even some graphic organizers. You might provide a special acronym- or way to remember something by the first letter of each step in the process.
For example, if you want to know the steps of long division you know you have to: divide, multiply, subtract, bring it down, and note the remainder. Using the first letter of each of these words we can remember the order by remembering the important people in our lives: D for dad, M for mom, S for sister, B for brother, R for Rover, the dog. So the mnemonic is D (dad) for divide, M (mom) for multiply, S, (sister) for subtract, B, bringdown, (brother) and R (rover) to note the remainder.
I mnemonic device can be used for memorizing just about anything and between that and using pictures and other techniques a student can be helped to memorize the sequence of facts or important information or activities that he or she must accomplish.
Here is a wonderful training video for using Mnemonic devices:
