Teach Others

This means explaining the subject matter to another person. The best way to test if you really understand something is to teach it to someone else.

When you teach, you learn at a level you could not have otherwise. This is because you are forced to interact with the topic on many levels. You are retrieving it, organizing your thoughts, verbalizing it in a clear way, answering questions the other person might have, etc. It takes you from being a mere student of the material to becoming a master.

Now, I’m in no way suggesting that you change your occupation and become a teacher or professor. All I am saying is impart your knowledge to another person. That other person can be a friend, spouse, or students and colleagues who are having trouble with the lesson. You might even teach to a group of stuffed animals. Why not?

This sums up the discussion of the different memory methods. These methods are some of the best ways to learn, understand, and enhance memory of information. They work well, because as you saw, they function with the natural rhythm of how your brain likes to take in and store information .

As mentioned earlier, by combining these methods, you enhance your learning, understanding, and memory even further. Combining the methods adds the power of repetition. The more you expose yourself to information, the longer that information will stay in your mind.

So how would one go about combining these methods?

It’s simple really.

Step 1. First, start with preview. Glance over the material you want to learn or remember.

Step 2. Next engage the material. If it is a book or article, read it. If it is a lecture or presentation, attend and listen to it. If it is a video, watch it.

Step 3. Then go back and take notes on the material.

Step 4. When you finish taking notes, this would be a good time to take a break.

Step 5. Returning from the break, look over and review your notes. You might choose to review your notes out loud to engage the aural part of your mind .

At this point you'd have a solid understanding and memory of the information. It would be successfully filed in your mental storage.

Step 6. With the material in storage, practice retrieving it from storage. If you want, you could do this out loud to engage the auditory senses again.

Step 7. After recall, you might engage your visual senses. You are probably wondering, “How can I engage the visual sense of materials like a book or lecture?” You can do it by visualizing the information. Close your eyes and visualize what you learned or want to remember.

Step 8. If your lessons involve doing or performing something like a task, then this would be a good time to involve your kinesthetic senses.

Step 9. Once you've done all this, look at how the content connects to the big picture.

Step 10. At this point, you are ready to test your knowledge. You can answer end of chapter
