Me and My Memory is the first in the series, and it explores the mystery of our minds and memory. How do we remember? And how do we forget? In it young people will discover all that scientists and researchers know and explore questions yet to be answered.

It is illustrated by a cast of little robots who’ll be the readers’ guides on their journeys through the discussions on memory. Readers will begin to notice how their own and other people’s memories work. They will learn to understand why memory is powerful, but not perfect, and will uncover some strategies for improving their memory.

The curriculum can be used to provide supplemental activities within a high school psychology course, or used as a stand-alone “memory” unit to increase student productivity and improve study behavior in grades 8 through 12.

The book offers a unique perspective for teachers, providing information to help guide their teaching techniques, improve student retention, and ultimately increase student achievement.

Available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
