LAI574 Assignment

Storyboard Text

  • Monday morning on the bus to school...
  • We're learning so much I can't remember it all!
  • It's not that bad
  • Another all-nighter?
  • I'm only physically here, Khadijah.
  • Is this about the music test today? WE have a music test?
  • What the heck is a forte?
  • Look it's easy.  We have vocabulary like forte.  And you just give the definition.... ....and I hear you thinking, what the heck is a forte.
  • An every day struggle for a student could be their battle with information overload.  SWD may need support to help remember specific bits of information.
  • Look.  Use my mnemonic device.
  •  Forte means loud, but it SOUNDS LIKE fort, with an "ay."
  • Our fort games always used to have guns firing and all the noise.  So IMAGINE our fort with all the GUNS FIRING AWAY.
  • Mnemonic devices and other associative learning techniques help students learn content area vocabulary, factual information, and sometimes conceptual connections.
  • I wonder if he knows he's here in the fort with me...
  • And it is LOUD.  So, forte, which sounds like "fort," makes us think of guns firing, and it's SO loud.
  •  The Keyword Method is demonstrated here.  The target and unknown word is "forte."
  • It's not such a bad technique after all...
  • We've angered it.
  • Why the FORT are you both so LOUD?
  • Levin's (1983) "Three R's" begins with step 1's "Recoding" and "forte" is recoded into "fort" because it shares acoustic likeness.
  • I give up...
  • Next, step 2's "Relating" has the connected "fort" image developed into a full-blown, LOUD, gun-firing image.
  • ....  So, what does forte mean?!
  • Finally, step 3's "Retrieving" brings the meaning associations seemingly unrelated information full-circle back to "forte," because forts are loud... 
  • I think it means loud.
  • This is going to be a rough day...
