The author of this thesis has often walked away from conversations with adults with the feeling that those adults do not remember some of the content learned in school in Social Studies subjects such as History and Geography. For this reason, the author has concluded that the study of teaching methods that have a likelihood of resulting in long-term retention has particular relevance to the content area of Social Studies. The literature review seeks to answer the following question: What are the proven strategies of teaching content that are most likely to result in long-term retention of learned material? Additionally, the application emphasis will be based on the findings of the literature review and serve as a series of best practices for teaching with long-term retention in mind.
