About This Strategy Source
Make It Stick offers techniques to make students more productive learners. The book introduces guided principals about learning to maximise the ability to memorise and recall information.
What is This Strategy About?
Practice is more effective when broken into separate incidents of spaced out training. Pupils need to understand different conditions and what you need to do to succeed in them.
What are Active Learning Methods?
Active learning requires children to think more and solve problems rather than simply sitting and listening to teachers. The varying learning styles keep children engaged as it encourages them to take a central role in their own learning.

Choose this strategy if you want to...
- Ensure pupils are used to a variety of challenges
- Allow pupils to show you actually how much they know, as they are not just repeating one answer in one context
- Keep it engaging - repetition is boring
