This three-page online article about how the memory works provides concrete
examples and images for the concepts it presents. The writing is upbeat and
appealing, especially for junior-senior high school students. False memory,
post-event information--how memories can be changed by what you are told, and
source memory-the ability to recall precisely when and where an event occured
are all addressed. The student teacher or teacher could make use of this site
and build on it with their own lessons featuring memory and recall.
