|The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Third Edition (WISC-III) is the instrument used by psychologists administering cognitive assessments to students in Palliser Regional Schools; commonly identified areas of difficulty include memory and attention deficits. The purpose of this project was to collect and collate proven teaching strategies to assist students whose difficulties with memory and/or maintaining attention impact negatively on their learning. Theoretical background information on memory and attention is summarized. Strategies to foster memory development include general strategies (mnemonics, associative, visual, auditory and temporal/environmental) and subject-specific strategies (reading, mathematics and spelling). Teaching approaches to assist students in maintaining appropriate attention and focus are outlined. All strategies discussed in the document were derived from academic research or practical teacher experience.
