Why is it you can recall a favorite childhood memory, but might not be able to remember what you did the day before? Reflect on the reasons why you are able to remember some things and not others by answering the following questions. Be sure to use Chapter 7 of our text to provide evidence and support for your response.
- Compare and contrast sensory memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory using school-based examples.
- What works best for you when required to commit facts to memory for both the short-term and long-term?
- Knowing how memory works, how will this impact your instruction? How will you help students to retain and retrieve the information they need to know? Provide a specific strategy that you would utilize in your classroom to ensure that the content makes a lasting impression and is secured in long-term memory.
