18. Boost Student Retention of Essential Concepts and Skills through ... | Math Conference 2023

Speaking: Paul Riccomini

Teaching new mathematical content is a major responsibility of teachers at all levels, but also supporting students' retention is equally important, especially for students with learning disabilities. Teachers spend a great deal of energy focused on helping students learn new content. While this is important, many students fail to remember what they learned which will lead to significant struggles in mathematics. Without the use of effective retention practice activities, what we teach is at worse forgotten or at best, fragmented and poorly organized. (K - 12)
