Consider your own classroom practice. What is a chaotic part of the day that is the direct result of poor working memory skills? Is there a time of day that involves multi-step directions that confuse children or seems to turn awry? Identify that part of the day in the form provided. Create a strategic plan for how to support the development of working memory within that process. Can you provide visual cues? Can you simplify the directions? Is there a way to integrate the use of song or other tools to scaffold children in this activity? This task involves three separate steps: an observation period, in which you will observe or video record the time of day in which you plan to make changes; an analysis and reflection, where you will share your thoughts on the observations you made about the nature of the activity or how it could be improved; and an intervention, in which you embed some sort of process to support the development of working memory. Consider the potential long-term impact this task can have on your classroom, as well as the implications for cognitive development as you embed the intervention into your daily practice during the third period of the activity.
