Processes in Long-Term Memory Rehearsal: A memory process involving repetition,important for maintaining information in short-termmemory and transferring it to long-term memory. Elaboration: A long-term memory process involvingchanging or adding to material, or makingassociations to make remembering easier. Organization: A memory strategy involving groupingand relating material to maintain it in long-termmemory.
Fading Memory traces dacay from disuse. Provide opportunities for repetition and rehearsal;teach in a variety of settings using differentapproaches.
Distortion Memory is constructive; we often remember the gistand make up the rest; hence, what is recalled changesover time. Emphasize the most important or salient features ofwhat is to be learned.
Repression Traumatic experiences are unconsciously buried andno longer consciously accessible. Avoid traumatizing students (Is the bear serious? Washe traumatized as a cub?).
Interference Old memories interfere with learning new material(proactive), or new learning interferes with recall ofold learning (retroactive) Teach for transfer, highlight similarities anddifferences.
Retrieval Cue Failure Learner lacks cues to enable specific recall. Point out relationships and associations that can serveas retrieval cues; teach specific retrieval cues; teachlearners some of the memory aids described in thischapter.
