Memory Strategies for College Students.
Reetz, Linda J.
Seven memory strategies that can be taught to college students with learning disabilities or students who have not learned essential study skills are described: the method of loci, pegwords, keywords, rote rehearsal, chaining, clustering, and first letter mnemonics. To help college faculty provide direct instruction in the memory strategies, the introductory section presents an activity to facilitate the examination of their own memory strategies. Faculty could provide examples of memory strategies to help students memorize essential information in specific courses. It is suggested that a class period devoted to "how to learn" what is presented may be a new focus for college instructors in order to increase retention. (SW)
