  2. 2. Justification for our project raise student test scores decreasing the number of D’s and F’s on student assignments develop good study habits increasing their independence and comprehension Evidence/reasoning  Purpose of LINCS: connect familiar knowledge with unfamiliar knowledge  Incorporates different types of learning
  3. 3. Research questions Does the use of the LINCS strategy improve students’ retention and understanding of new vocabulary/concepts? How do students respond to the use of the LINCS strategy?
  4. 4. Detailed description ofintervention
  5. 5. Our strategy Method  1st week: class A uses LINCS strategy for weeks vocabulary, class B does not  2nd week: class B uses LINCS strategy for weeks vocabulary, class A does not  After use: affective survey  At the end of each week: assessment to test student retention of key vocabulary and concepts
