This is the book for every teacher who has ever forgotten what someone just told him or whose students have ever forgotten to take their books and assignments home with them. Memory expert Marilee Sprenger uses the latest research on learning, memory, and the brain to weave a storyteller's spell for us with two parallel parables: one a tale of adult educators in a Memory 101 workshop, and the other a story for children with magical talking elephants, lions, and jungle creatures. Along the way, we acquire tips, strategies,mnemonics, graphic organizers, and checklists that help us to strengthen our memories train our brains, and help us help our students to do the same. Relax and enjoy this book: the experience will be memorable!
