“I know visualization of future tasks is important. However, I don’t think this student actually has the ability to create mental visual images. How do I teach them to do this? Other students, I work with have limited working memory and can’t seem to hold on to their mental visualization long enough to carry out tasks. How can I help?”
• Teach students to be a mind MIME. Learn how to help students truly create mental visual imagery for the future and to perform a mental dress rehearsal to sequence actions towards a goal and hold that prospective memory in mind while they execute and self-monitor through tasks. Increase a student’s mental visual imagery skills so as to support forethought across space and time
