I had the opportunity to work with 70 twelve/thirteen year old's on a recall project that uses imagination and symbolic images to remember a long series of phrases and quotes.
The students were given verbal sentences which they had to convert into images. Each image had to link to the last one in the series until after been given thirty five for connecting, the students had to create a story using as many as they could remember! They then had to list as many of the phrases/quotes.
The cohort was of mixed ability skills, but all were able to recall at least thirty phrases/quotes from the three hour workshop.
An inspiring, brilliant and creative day.
