Strategy #3: Using visual and kinesthetic memory strategies

Strong visual learners need to see what they want to remember. Kinesthetic learners incorporate movement into their learning strategies for greater success.

Here are some strategies you can share with your students to improve their reading comprehension and memory. When they have completed an assigned reading, have them do the following.

1. Write, rewrite, or type the information for visual and kinesthetic inputs.
2. Organize information in a chart, idea web, outline, or other kind of concept map.
3. Associate a concept with visual imagery. Draw pictures. The more vivid the images, the more memorable. This act of creation requires you to use your imagination to think of visual images associated with the concepts/ideas you wish to understand and remember.
