Did you know that we actually use much more than 10% of our brain? And that we don’t remember something better if we discover it for ourselves? This post from Andy Tharby debunks these and 13 more learning myths quite nicely. In fact, the text is simple enough to use it with English learners in a 15-minute reading and discussion activity. For a deeper and more academic treatment of the same topic, try this NPR ED article with a quick interactive test and links to research journals, or this article from the University of British Columbia for a different set of myths and very comprehensive study advice. I’m still reading some of those links!
