GC306 – Elaborators – Everyday Elaboration Tool (Journal Entry)
GC306-S3 – Everyday Elaboration – Elaboration allows for more connection to the topic by increasing retention and long-term retrieval. Following the lesson, as directed, individually, with a partner, in a small group and/or as a class, Alexa or Instructor will request students select a lesson-related picture, diagram, object or concept, to use in elaboration. Then, students will elaborate by completing an everyday activity, such as writing a brief short story or planning a local ad. Everyday examples allow students to learn and remember intricate details and increase memory efficiency.
