More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Leah J. Sparks
This intriguing series title is designed to provide high school teens with lessons and activities to teach various aspects of memory. The short, interactive chapters offer glimpses into topics ranging from the memory cycle to chunking and coding to false memory. Fun, cartoon-style, black-and-white illustrations and short text boxes are peppered throughout the book, making the somewhat difficult topic more accessible to students. Supplementary material includes a list of additional class activities, a glossary of terms, a detailed index, and selections from the APA standards for high school psychology curricula, the College Board advanced placement psychology standards, and the National Board professional teaching standard for science. Some of the words and phrases bolded throughout the text do not appear in the glossary, although readers will likely look for them there. A bibliography or a further reading list would also be useful for those who would like to take their studies of the memory a step further. These are minor points, though, and the book overall is an engaging supplement to traditional classroom instruction or a fun read on its own. Although designed for teachers to incorporate into psychology and science class curricula, the book will appeal to adult and teen lay readers with an interest in the topic. Reviewer: Leah J. Sparks
