Interleaving is a concept that has been around in the pyschological literature for about 10 years, the findings are quite robust but there is a lot of confusion about exactly what interleaving is and how it should be used in the classroom.  This episode we define what interleaving is and is not, the consider the research that underpins it as a concept and the theories as to why it might work and finally what exactly interleaving could look like in your classroom.

There are two reviews that I mention and you can click on the links below to access them:
