This striking, comprehensive lesson plan for high school psychology teachers takes five class periods to complete. Along the way, students will learn the multi system model of memory, explore sensory memory and working memory, understand the encoding processes associated with long-term memory, focus on the retrieval aspects of long-term memory, and analyze the many dynamics of memory in everyday life. Each section introduces students to various activities, including research-based study tips to increase memory retention, and engages them in critical thinking exercises. Educators will be hard-pressed to find a more thorough lesson plan on the scope and workings of memory. Designed by Cynthia P. May, PhD and Gilles O. Einstein, PhD in accord with the current American Psychology Association standards, the freely downloadable PDF can serve as a complete lesson plan for any high school psychology educator.
