2. Brain Dump: Prompt students to write down everything they know about a specific topic, enhancing both recall and organization of content knowledge.
3. Quick Review: Implement spaced practice by posing questions from the last lesson, a week ago, and a month ago in your retrieval exercises.

By integrating retrieval practice into your instruction, you can bolster students’ learning outcomes.
