Hi,

This is a very large topic!!

In general, it's easiest to memorize something if what you're learning becomes personal and important to you.  Let me give you some examples.

If a student needs to learn how to spell a word, they can make up personal cues to help them remember the word.  They can make up a silly rhyme like  "boys eat California US elephants", to help them remember the word "because".  (The first letters of this silly rhyme spell the word.)  Or they can draw a picture of the word with the letters embedded in the picture.  For example, the word "cemetery" could have headstones with "e's" on them so that the student remembers that all of the vowels in the word are e's.  You and your child can work together to develop easy to remember examples.

If a student needs to memorize a number fact, the student can draw a picture of the equation.  For example, if the student needs to remember 7 X 9 = 63, the student could sketch a personal, funny picture of the equation, inserting the numbers in the picture.  Then they would use Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques (looking up, rehearsing, writing down) to help them memorize that fact.

If students need to learn about the history of a country, say for example, Brazil, have them sketch a map and add details on the map, showing how the country developed when each new discovery was made, e.g. coffee, rubber, diamonds,etc.  The map would include the discovery, the dates, and the number of people who migrated to each portion of the county.  The students then study the map to help them remember the history facts.

Anytime you can use personal pictures or events, or funny songs or rhymes, or memorable cues for students, then memorizing will be easier.  At first, we need to find salient, or useful, cues for each student.  Very soon, they become involved in developing the cues that will help them remember.

Then when they get to an examination, they just need to visualize their personal cue to access the information.  This is the most effective way I've used to help students learn what they need to learn.
