This practical resource aims to promote an understanding of the importance of memory in learning. Teachers in mainstream and special schools are encouraged to implement effective strategies into their everyday practice, which should help children of all ages remember and organize their response to what has been taught. With photocopiable illustrations to support the text, the authors: provide important background information about the structure, development and assessment of human memory; make plain the distinction between different types of long-term and short-term (working) memory; explore the ways in which verbal and visual material interact in the memory; and provide a range of mnemonics and other practical strategies to use in the classroom.
