AP Exam Prep Food for Thought

   From the viewpoint of brain science, learning involves changing how the brain is structured. Research in this field has found that it's easier for students to learn material in depth if topics are interwoven; for example, we can do this studying by picking 2 different lessons like PRNG & Paint Pots.

   When our brain creates pathways we can strengthen these through reinforcement, the best way to do this is by recalling information rather than reviewing.

Summative Study Tips! 
1. Have students create a graphic organizer to reprocess previously learned information to help them think about the big picture for the course. 
2. Create Kahoots that combine different topics to review. 
   Learn more about how this works or share it with your students! Here is a short video on neuroplasticity.
