I especially like these memory tips which I have found highly effective in my tutoring experience...
Acronyms: Acronyms is when you make a word from the first letter of each word to be memorized is used. For example, HOMES for the Great Lakes (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior).
Acrostics: Acrostics are phases or poems in which the first letter of each word or line functions as a cue to help you recall the words that you are trying to remember. For example, “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” is used to remember the order of operations in Math.
Narrative: Make up a story with the list of words throughout the narrative helps with memorizing.
Rhymes: Rhyming can help retention of information. Remember the phrase “I after E except after C”?
Imagery: Draw or imagine a picture of what’s being studied, or find one in a book. Mentally refer to the picture when you are testing.
Visualization:. Use graphic organizers to help organize and remember information.
Flash Cards: When information is written out on cards you have access to studying at any time.
Best of luck! :)
