SLANT Strategy

Found in: mnemonics; motivating students

At the beginning of each semester I teach a University of Kansas strategy called SLANT:

  • S - Sit up straight;
  • L - Lean forward (writing position);
  • A - Activate your thinking;
  • N - Note important points;
  • T - Track the talker (keep your eyes on whomever is doing the informing).

I tell the students that this strategy will serve them throughout life, especially in high school and college. After the teaching process, I only have to say 'Slant' and the students respond appropriately. It works like magic for me.
