Feature Article: FAA Instructional Format

FAA instruction is based on early 1900 educational theory and practice. Most learning is visual but requires repetition and reinforcement for adequate retention. Only 8% of what you hear is retained unless it is accompanied by various kinds of repetitive exercises. Reading aloud is a common way of aural learning. More effective aural learning can be achieved by having student record information in his own words. Tactile learning can be helped by using the fingers to trace over material to be learned. Physical examples of instruments are best supplied to tactile learners.
