I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

In Chapter 13, I explain how to preview information and how previewing activates your brain to help you learn and remember concepts better. Take a peek:

Remember that movie preview you just saw?

Did it make you wonder how cool some parts of the movie will be?

Wasn’t it awesome?

I’m hoping you answered: Yes. Yes. Duh!

Previewing is a very effective movie marketing strategy. It makes you think and it peaks interest.
