Memory Strategies for Learning Disabled Students.
Mastropieri, Margo A.; Scruggs, Thomas E.
The use of the "keyword" method as a tool for improving memory in learning disabled students is explained. The keyword method consists of two stages: an acoustical link stage and a stage in which the student is provided with a picture of the keyword interacting with the appropriate response term. The method can be modified for use in vocabulary instruction, instruction in the content areas, and attribute learning. Another memory strategy combines keywords, pegwords, and a method of loci for remembering numbered or ordered information beyond the number 10. Several mnemonic illustrations are included. (SW)
