Ways to Retain What you are Studying

Hey guys!

So my teacher is new this year and he's trying out alot of different techniques on teaching. One of the things he's done is set up a debate for us about things that conflict in history. ie: Hamilton vs. Jefferson We discuss things about the scandals of the era we're studying, and are assigned a side to defend. This takes more then surface understanding of the issue, you have to be able to respond, and not just know. It helps alot when you are trying to get the full grasp of a subject, or retain it even.

My proposal: Those who are on corresponding chapters with other members of this site start a new thread and create a debate about something they are covering in class. None of this current affairs stuff. The stuff we need to know for the test. I will start one of my own this coming Monday hopefully. Thanks all. Hope this works out!

Hey, our teacher has suggested that as well! =D
And it really does work, especially on the really big and broad topics that you need to remember.

Nice. =)

Awesome suggestion Radshack. I'll see what I can do about implementing it.

Hey guys thanks for the support! Sorry I haven't done much about it I've been way busy. BUT for those of you reading from the American Pageant 13th Edition, my class is currently starting chapter 27. Somewhere along the lines of Cuba, and American Imperialism. The AP test is coming up soon and we need to start reviewing from past chapters instead of just retaining the current topics. Perhaps we can meet online on Tuesdays' and go over past topics that we are sketchy on. We can help each other =] If you're interested, I'll be on Tuesday! [February 5]
