Project CRISS

The ultimate goal of an educator is to teach the learner how to effectively learn on their own. Project CRISS is a program that teaches skills that can be applied in any content area. The focus is on metacognition, the idea of awareness and understanding of one's own thought processes, through providing strategies for organizing and processing information. Graphic organizers, reading strategies, mnemonic devices etc. Students need to have a tool box full of all kinds of strategies. More importantly they should possess  the ability to be able to choose the appropriate one for the task at hand.

  1. Your post is very interesting. I have a blog about mnemonic devices and I have used this phrase for the planets since I was a child: My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. But, some people liked to use “My Very Easy Method Just Shows Us Nine Planets” or “My Very Energetic Mother Jumps Skateboards Under Nana’s Patio” (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto). The problem now is Pluto. It was reclassified as a dwarf planet.
