  1. There are two things I do to remember names. First, I keep a student roster with pictures and names in front of me during class which I refer to when I call on students. I make sure to I say the students name out loud when I call on them as a memorization tool. Second, I use the process of passing out graded work as a way of quizzing myself on names. I pass out papers to the students whose names I know first and once I get through that group I’ll say the name out loud to get that student to identify himself or herself. After I do that once or twice I generally can pass out all the assignments without having to ask the students to identify themselves.

    • This is great, Jason. It sounds like you have come up with your own method of doing some retrieval practice to learn all those names… Thanks for sharing about your technique.
