Supporting Auditory Working Memory

This week I read another school report where a learner with working memory issues was described as 'easily distractible' and 'forgetful'. All to often it is written in a way that seems to suggest the learner has chosen to behave in this way and needs to change. This apparent distractibility is because they have been given more verbal information that their short-term working memory can deal with in one go. There is little convincing evidence that this area of storage can be increased. What can be changed relatively easily is the teaching approach used. This excellent book gives a clear explanation of how this area of memory works and classroom strategies that can be adopted.
