Critical factors in helping struggling learners to remember
from By: Howard Margolis (commentary)
If you teach special education or have a child in need of remedial or special help, you may soon start asking "Why does he keep forgetting? What's wrong with him?" Maybe he forgets because he doesn't attend to or understand the important information, concepts or processes. And maybe, in full or part, he's a struggling learner with memory problems. But physically, directly, legally and morally, you can't get into his brain to rearrange his memory cells and synapses as he's a real child, not an android in a bizarre science-fiction movie. So, you're helpless. Right? Wrong. You're not.
