Want free downloads? We've got 'em!

Do you like free downloads, especially when they're based on cognitive science and practical for today's classrooms?

We do! Download all our goodies from our library and check out our guides, book club resources, templates, and more.

We have a favor to ask: Could you share our library with one friend who would also love our downloads? The direct link is retrievalpractice.org/library. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook, too!

Download our guides – and so much more!


Two weeks ago, we released our Spacing Guide – full of research and practical tips on harnessing it in your classroom. We wrote it in collaboration with Professor Shana Carpenter, an expert on how spacing can be used to transform learning. (Don't know what spacing is? Download the guide!)

We now have four guides, written by cognitive scientists and actionable in the classroom. But did you know we have so much more? 

Visit our library for our free resources:

  • Practice Guides: Retrieval, Interleaving, Transfer, and Spacing

  • Discussion questions and sketchnotes for the book Make it Stick

  • Retrieval Practice Warm Ups

  • Key phrases for conversations with students

  • A Metacognition Sheet template

  • Recommended research articles

All of our downloads are also available on Teachers Pay Teachers and Google Drive.

Do you have an idea for a research-based resource you'd love to see? Let us know! We're here to give science away and we'd love your help.
