As evidence-based practices are quite rare in the US, I would like to talk from the prospective of an educator who actively uses researched/proven learning strategies in the classroom. I would like to discuss the following: -how I incorporate learning strategies in my lessons (retrieval practice, spaced practice, dual coding, etc.) -Improvements I have seen in both 1) test scores and 2) study/practice habits with my students. -Students improved attitude toward studying/practicing because they have seen the research and see its worth. -Research on combining learning strategies for possible further improvement in retention of material.
