DOES YOUR HOLIDAY TO-DO LIST INCLUDE LEARNING?
Like most families, you and the kids are probably looking forward to a break from the normal hectic routine. No rushed mornings, no after-school homework battles, and lots of downtime spent with loved ones. While your holiday to-do list may include baking, decorating, and travelling, there’s one to-do item that shouldn’t be overlooked this holiday season: learning.
Scheduling holiday learning keeps kids on track academically, maintains school habits, and helps make the transition back-to-school post-holiday that much smoother.
But learning over the holidays doesn’t have to be boring! Keeping the cognitive wheels turning over the holiday break can be as simple as playing board games, reading books, or writing thank you cards.
Encourage kids to do at least one learning activity a day over the holidays to help them stay on track academically.
We don’t mean failing a FINAL exam is a good thing, but researchers have discovered that taking pretests (testing knowledge before actually learning course material) can help students better focus and retain information on key content, helping them do better overall in classes than if they merely studied as normal.
Why Failing an Exam is A Good Thing
“[A] (bombed) pretest drives home the information in a way that studying as usual does not. We fail, but we fail forward.”
As an article in the New York Times explains, students who were given pretests during multiple experiments generally scored higher than control group counterparts. Researchers believe that their wrong answers on pretests weren’t just useless shots in the dark; they actually primed students’ brains to receive the information to come, helping them learn and recall correct information more effectively later on.
