Tell students that they will be able to "see" behind covered bulletin boards. WHY? Our brain prompts our visual memory to assist in recall, so we must be more deliberate about helping students access this tool. After introducing a chart or display, ask the students to close their eyes and remember as much of the display as they can. After a few short reviews, ask the students to write or draw what they can recall without looking. Discuss the power of visual recall to help them see the importance of nonverbal strategies. HINT: Keep chart references in the same location in the room. When the charts are removed, children will be able to use their visual recall strategy. Questions: When will this strategy be helpful? When a student's eyes are glued to one spot on the wall, could they be thinking instead of daydreaming? When appropriate, could you ask them what's on their mind? If aware of this visual strategy, it is possible for more children to be thinking rather than daydreaming.
