Muscle memory: Also for academics

We typically associate “muscle memory” with activities that call on consistent, repetitive motion like a golf swing, baseball or softball swing, or a tennis stroke. Muscle memory also has applications to learning. If students develop consistent habits for studying, the writing process, active reading, a homework routine, and time management, they can eventually rely on muscle memory when approaching their academics. As schoolwork becomes more challenging and demanding, muscle memory can help your child achieve at the next level. The key, as it is with sports, is good coaching, identifying and implementing strategies that work, consistency, and practice.
