Teach Briefly, Teach Often

Here's some practical information for making you an effective teacher - better to teach in short repetitive bursts, than all in one sitting. In the study below, children whose teaching consisted of three 2-min sessions per day (for 2 weeks) showed more than six times the improvement of those who were taught for one 6-min session per day. Sounds a bit like how good TV documentaries are designed: tell'em what you're going to tell'em, tell'em, then tell'em what you told'em.
