Keyword Mnemonics

Mnemonics are strategies and techniques that aid in memory.  A mnemonic keyword connects a new vocabulary word to students’ prior knowledge by using a visual depicting the definition to the new vocabulary word.  New vocabulary terms are introduced through a similar sounding word (keyword).  This keyword is illustrated in such a way that the keyword interacts with critical attributes of the definition of the new word.  Lastly, a sentence is created to connect the keyword to the new definition.

Cover, Copy Compare

Cover, Copy, and Compare is an approach to building fluency with basic facts and computation. A student looks at a solved mathematics problem, covers it, copies and solves it, and then compares to see if the newly-written problem matches the original problem. Cover, Copy, and Compare only takes a few minutes to complete, and students can use the practice every day.
