The teenage brain needs a lot of activity. The adolescent brain is yearning for risk. For my lesson designing I can use Emotional Memory to help students retain the new information. Students need to work on their long term memory. Semantic memory is a great way to help visual learners to understand and make connections. Students will be engaged in the learning because there will be activities that will trigger natural hormones, like dopamine and endorphins. One activity might be of doing writings that involve personal connections. In Spanish, students can write about themselves or people that are part of their lives.
