A log book can be a highly valuable record for improvement. Log books are used to keep track of things such as the last date of automobile maintenance and what was done, or the number of hours a pilot has flown and where he's traveled. The log book becomes evidence of the event or action, and is used to ensure that the next trip or event is better because of what has been learned. Likewise, a student who keeps a learning log will be able to increase their understanding of material, make connections more quickly, and improve their learning "trip" along the way.

Post class rules
Students need to know what is expected of them from the very beginning. It is also useful to have visuals of the rules so that you can redirect small misbehavior problems by pointing at the appropriate rule poster.

We displayed all the posters for the first week. I later had the students vote on a single poster for each rule to leave up.
Students may occasionally break a rule. It is important that you have established a procedure for dealing with infractions. The consequences ...

Does your students' poor performance on class tests keep you up at night? Do you find yourself wracking your brain, trying to figure out how the same students who seemed to understand what you taught yesterday now can't seem to remember any of it? Do you stress for months prior to a large-scale standardized test that your students have to take because you fear that they will perform poorly on it?
If any of these experiences sound familiar, you're not alone. These are some of the most common complaints and fears experienced by teachers everywhere.
But don't despair; there is hope! Cognitive scientists have been delving into the mysteries of human memory for over a hundred years now, and we know more today about how to teach students so that the material actually "sticks" than ever before.
Today, I want to talk just a bit about one of the easiest ways to radically boost your students' memory of the material you teach--incorporating mnemonics into your teaching.
