Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

In Chapter 13, I explain how to preview information and how previewing activates your brain to help you learn and remember concepts better. Take a peek:

Remember that movie preview you just saw?

Did it make you wonder how cool some parts of the movie will be?

Wasn’t it awesome?

I’m hoping you answered: Yes. Yes. Duh!

Previewing is a very effective movie marketing strategy. It makes you think and it peaks interest.
