4 Teaching Tips to Make Your Teaching Stick!
This webinar is limited to high school teachers.
Calling all high school econ teachers! There are lots of teaching strategies out there but few are based on how the brain actually works to retain information and apply it in new situations.
We want to show you how to use 4 easy evidence-based teaching techniques (i.e., spaced repetition, interleaving, analogizing, and metacognition) in your high school economics class to increase your students' retention of information and lead to more authentic, transferable learning. In this presentation, we define these techniques, show them applied in a high school economics lesson, and identify 3 simple ways to adapt your own lesson plans to incorporate them.
Mary Clare Peate, the webinar presenter, is the Director of Curriculum at MRU. She currently serves on the National Association of Economic Educators' Executive Committee and on the Journal of Economics Teaching board.
