  • Cognitive Psychology Memory “Levels of Processing” Miss Russell
  • Feedback of experiments from last lesson. & Feedback of questions.
  • Thinking Ladder…
  • How will I know if I am learning? By the end of the lesson… E Will be able to describe evidence for and against the LOP model. C Will be able to explain evidence for and against the LOP model A Will be able to evaluate the LOP model using strengths and weaknesses.
  • Let’s Evaluate the theory using SCOUT… S Supporting Evidence Studies/evidence to support the theory. C Conflicting Evidence Studies/evidence to challenge the theory. O Other explanations How else could we explain it? Alternative theories. U Does it have any useful practical applications? T Usefulness Testability Can the theory be tested? How?
  • Now fill out your table using the textbook. Consider strengths, weaknesses and evidence. Don’t forget to write in Craik & Tulving’s study as your main piece of supporting research!
  • Let’s Evaluate the evidence using GRAVE… G Generalisability Can we generalise the study to everyone? Is the sample biased? R Can the study be replicated and get the same results? A V E Reliability Applications Validity Ethics Do the results suggest any practical applications? Is the study testing what it’s meant to? Are there any extraneous variables? Does it violate any of the ethical guidelines?
  • Let’s put this all together… Describe and Evaluate the Levels of Processing Model of Memory (12 Marks)
  • Let’s put this all together… Describe and Evaluate the Levels of Processing Model of Memory (12 Marks) Step 1 A01: Write each of you’re A01 points on a blue slip. 1 point per slip. Step 2 A02: Write each of you’re A01 points on a yellow slip. 1 point per slip. Step 3 Start & Finish: Write your introduction on one pink slip, and your conclusion on another.
  • Let’s put this all together… Describe and Evaluate the Levels of Processing Model of Memory (12 Marks) Step 4 Links: Think about each of your points and how they will link together. Write a connective on each green slip and link all of your points together. Possible connectives: However, but, therefore, in agreement, this supports, this contradicts, another…, this suggests, thus, alternatively. You may also write ‘paragraph’ on a green slip to indicate the start of a new paragraph.
  • Complete in full for Homework Describe and Evaluate the Levels of Processing Model of Memory (12 Marks) Due 1 week today!
  • AO2  Real Life Applications How can we apply LOP to learning at school? This explanation of memory is useful in everyday life because it highlights the way in which elaboration, which requires deeper processing of information, can aid memory. Three examples of this are. • Reworking – putting information in your own words or talking about it with someone else. • Method of loci – when trying to remember a list of items, linking each with a familiar place or route. • Imagery – by creating an image of something you want to remember, you elaborate on it and encode it visually (i.e. a mind map).
  • Let’s apply our knowledge to a Question…      The levels of processing approach provides a model that can be applied to improving memory. Imagine you are giving advice to a friend on the best way to revise for their exams. Using this model of memory give four ideas they can use to improve their revision. N.B. the first one is done for you as an example. 1. Don’t worry if a topic seems difficult because the more you have to think about it to work it out, the more likely you will be to remember it 2 3 4
  • 5:00 1) Heading: Today’s Date, Unit & Topic 2) Write a summary of your learning today in less than 100 words. What have you learned ? 3) Considering what you have written in stage 2, which of the success criteria have you met? Write down them down along with the grade!
