Extending learning beyond the classroom
Episodic memory is the one we have for events (or episodes) we experience. Some children have trouble remembering facts, vocabulary, and procedures, like how to do long division. They can remember accurate details about a trip they took a whole year ago! They love field trips, movies, and activities that involve building or doing something. These students have a strong episodic memory. They remember what the class was doing when they were learning something.
At KK, we know this is true about children, and we help them learn more effectively at school by creating episodic memories which include field trips, special days, guest lectures, culminating activities, etc. which relate to the main theme.
