Memorization Strategies 3
  • Mnemonics
  • Technique that allows learners to remember
    information using short retrieval cues
  • EXAMPLES

    sailed the ocean blue
  • My very earnest mother just served us nachos (to
    remember the order of the planets)
  • WHAT ARE SOME OTHERS?

Memorization Strategies 4
  • Types of Mnemonics
  • Chunking (grouping items for better recall,
    particularly numbers)
  • Acronyms (using the first letter from a group of
    words to form a new word)
  • Visualization (creating pictures in your mind or
    on paper)
  • Peg Method (visualizing words literally attached
    to familiar objects)

Memorization Strategies 5
  • Types of Mnemonics Continued
  • 5. Place Method (similar to peg method, but uses
    numbers and a poem instead of landmarks)
  • 6. Linking Method (linking each item to the
    preceding using crazy images)
