MEMORY

[ ] REPEAT IT: Verbally repeat it aloud 2-3 times.

[ ] WRITE IT: Write it down.

[ ] RETELL IT: Summarize what you just heard or read

PROBLEM SOLVING

[ ] UNDERSTAND: Be sure you understand the task directions.

[ ] PREDICT: What will be hardest for you? What can you change to make it easier?

[ ] PLAN: Don’t be impulsive. Plan your actions carefully.

[ ] EVALUATE: Double check your work before submitting. What was challenging? Why? How can you improve next time?
