I was inspired by Tony Mackenzie an accelerated reading coach who taught us how to improve our memory by linking thought and ideas to imagery. An example of this involved remembering the first item on our list of thirty, which was a car. We had to remember the car by linking it to a story or image. I imagined a car crashing into the Eiffel tower which looked like the number 1.

This has helped me because I have started to use imagery in lessons to help me remember key facts and other things. I think this will be helpful in the future. He inspired me also by telling us his story of leaving school with few qualifications but then improving by reading many books and completing an online course to acquire his skills of memorising things and associating them with imagery. He encouraged us to make the most of our education.
