LM Tunstall's insight:

Concept Cards
Concept cards are note cards students make while they are reading their mathematics textbook. To
develop cards that will aid in studying, as well as test review, students need to learn to read, to
reflect on what was read, and to put the information in their own words

 

They stated that concept cards enabled them to isolate what they needed to
focus on and extract from the text. They also learned to separate general concepts from specific
examples through use of the cards. Students saw the cards as references they could use when
solving problems.

Trials | Full text | Evaluating the effectiveness of reasoning training in military and civilian chronic traumatic brain injury patients: study protocol

Individuals who sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) often continue to experience significant impairment of cognitive functions mediated by the prefrontal cortex well into chronic stages of recovery. Traditional brain training programs that focus on improving specific skills fall short of addressing integrative functions that draw upon multiple higher-order processes critical for social and vocational integration. In the current study, we compare the effects of two short-term, intensive, group-based cognitive rehabilitation programs for individuals with chronic TBI. One program emphasizes learning about brain functions and influences on cognition, while the other program adopts a top-down approach to improve abstract reasoning abilities that are largely reliant on the prefrontal cortex. These treatment programs are evaluated in civilian and military veteran TBI populations.
LM Tunstall's insight:

IS GIST PART OF THE SMART PROGRAM?

 

"Strategic attention involves blocking less relevant details to focus on important information. Integration incorporates strategies to abstract and create meanings or goals from information or tasks."

 

SOUNDS LIKE GIST.

LM Tunstall's insight:

IS THERE DATA?

 

"The present findings suggest that cognitive strategies that support abstraction of meaning can be taught in a typical public school eighth grade classroom to improve students’ ability to utilize gist-reasoning to convey the meaning of texts."

 

"The SMART© (Chapman and Gamino, 2008) program was developed to train individuals to derive a deeper level of understanding by abstracting meaning from texts."

 

IS A GIST STRATEGY PART OF THIS PROGRAM?

LM Tunstall's insight:

DOES IT ANALYZE TEXT?

 

"Close reading stresses engaging with a text of sufficient complexity directly and examining its meaning thoroughly and methodically...encouraging students to read and re-read deliberately."

 

"When using informational text, the strategy of GIST (Generating Interactions between Schemata and Text) is a helpful graphic organizer that promotes close reading."

IS GIST BACKED BY SCIENCE?

I think there might be a million prezis on GIST.  Here is one.
