As students go to school, many believe they cannot do well. Unfortunately, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Our brains are so expansive and elastic; we could never fill them in a lifetime. Everything we have ever seen, heard, experienced or even imagined is within the realm of our memory. Accessing those memories is an ability that can be improved upon.
When a child sits in class and prepares for a test or quiz, the knowledge should merely flow from their memory. Stress, previous experiences on tests and their own expectations of failure block that easy flow. Study habits can also aid or block the transmission of information to students.
Not just students, but adults in the working world need to master material for their careers. Even adults who were excellent students sometimes need a refresher course to ensure they maximize that learning experience.
As a teacher, I have spent many years learning the best way to approach new material and learn it quickly.
