"When we think about learning, we typically focus on getting information INTO students’ heads. What if, instead, we focus on getting information OUT of students’ heads?"

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

RetrievalPractice.org is founded and led by cognitive scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D. She has conducted research on learning in K-12 public schools for 15 years and she is co-authoring a forthcoming book with a K-12 teacher, entitled Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning (Jossey-Bass, Spring 2019). Pooja's research has been published in leading peer-reviewed psychology journals; featured in the New York Times, Education Week, and Scientific American; and highlighted in numerous books, podcasts, and videos. Pooja is a former K-12 teacher and currently teaches college students in Boston.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We practice what we preach! We teach using powerful strategies based on the science of learning, including retrieval practice (getting information out), spaced practice (spacing learning over time), and feedback-driven metacognition.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

We are passionate about bridging gaps between the science of learning and K-12 education. One shining moment was when a teacher told us, "This research is directly responsible for my class doubling their AP Micro scores from previous years. My class went from a 30% pass rate to a 60% pass rate when I began utilizing the principles... The principles from this research have given me the ability to show tangible results in the classroom and instill that confidence in my students."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Pooja K. Agarwal received her Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis, under the mentorship of distinguished memory scholar Henry L. Roediger, III (author of Make It Stick).
