Celebrate good times, come on! (It's our one year anniversary!)

It's been a year since we launched RetrievalPractice.org!

There's a party going on' right here – and we're celebrating you for transforming learning with cognitive science research, resources, and strategies in your classrooms and schools around the world.

We are thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of enthusiasm from thousands of subscribers, followers, movers, and shakers in our first year – far beyond our wildest dreams. To celebrate, here's a roundup of our biggest hits (and the best is yet to come)!

As the song by Kool & The Gang goes, "It's time to come together! It's up to you, what's your pleasure? Everyone around the world, come on!" Imagine what our celebration could look like a year from now if we grow our reach and make an even larger impact on student learning?

Let's come together: Forward this email to two friends and share your feedback with us as we look forward to the year ahead!

P.S. If you received this email from a friend, welcome to the party! Subscribe here for your cognitive science goody bag.
