“One of the most striking research findings is the power of active retrieval—testing—to strengthen memory, and that the more effortful the retrieval, the stronger the benefit.”
― Henry L. Roediger III, Make It Stick
The learning strategies used for decades are counterproductive – at least according to the book, Make It Stick by Peter Brown, Mark McDaniel, and Henry Roediger. Illuminating the latest research in memory and learning, Make It Stick may spur controversy, but it paves the way for ongoing discovery in the field of learning. Innovation is essential if we’re to help students succeed.
“It’s not the failure that’s desirable, it’s the dauntless effort despite the risks, the discovery of what works and what doesn’t that sometimes only failure can reveal.”
― Peter C. Brown, Make It Stick
