Can we make you smarter?
Students, this program has been designed to make you smarter. Current research identifies nine learning strategies that should help improve your thinking and retention of information. You should grow some extra dendritic connections in your brain - look this up if you don't know what it means.
Tasks, like keeping a science notebook, taking notes (writing them out, not cutting and pasting), identifying similarities and differences, creating non-linguistic representations (diagrams, graphs, annotated drawings), and discussing your work with other people (including classmates, family and friends) are important parts of the process.
Have a go and help us find out if we can make you smarter. Of course, you're making yourself smarter, but we're always happy to take the credit.
