First-Letter Mnemonic Strategy

The FIRST-Letter Mnemonic Strategy is a strategy for independently studying large bodies of information that need to be mastered. Specifically, students identify lists of information that are important to learn, generate an appropriate title or label for each set of information, select a mnemonic device for each set of information, create study cards, and use the study cards to learn the information.

In studies, students who learned the FIRST-Letter Mnemonic Strategy increased their scores of test questions related to list information from an average of 51 percent before instruction to 85 percent after instruction.
