One of the greatest things you can take from this class is how to utilize memory to the best of your ability, especially when considering how this can impact studying and test performance. Your textbook suggests several strategies for improving your memory. In this discussion we will explore those strategies, among others, and how they can apply to your lives as students.
In your thread, address each of the following:
Describe a study method that could be used in a college course and explain how it works and why it works using terminology from your chapter (ideal terms that you can apply include but are not limited to encoding, storage, retrieval, working memory, elaboration, recognition, mnemonic device, rehearsal, chunking, etc.)
Apply your study tip to a course in which you are currently enrolled or have completed. That is, show the practical use of this study tip as it applies to specific course material and examinations (e.g., “In my basket-weaving class we have exams where we have to identify the name of certain weaving patterns from pictures. My strategy is to use rehearsal and recognition to test myself using pictures of weaving patterns. I only rehearse 5 patterns at a time, which shows the importance of chunking and limitations of working memory, and I test myself until I can name them perfectly without assistance, which demonstrates recall.” and so on.)
