Now that you have shared strategies and resources for enhancing learning and memory, it is time to tailor your research for public consumption.

For this assignment, create a one-page (front and back) fact sheet targeted at a public audience (students, parents, people with disabilities, children or teens, community members, clients, or constituents). This information sheet should concisely describe the issue at hand, what current research indicates about the issue, and what action items are recommended as a result. You should provide citations within the fact sheet, so that every statement made is clearly documented. Graphics that support rather than distract from the information are encouraged but should not dominate the fact sheet. The goal of this assignment is to provide an opportunity for you to practice translating complex information about a topic into a form that is easily understood by the general public.

In your assignment:

Provide a brief description on how the brain encodes, consolidates, and retrieves information. It may help to include a visual aid to illustrate these memory processes.
Front page: Explain three techniques for enhancing learning and memory. These are general techniques that can be used by anyone, including yourself.
Back page: Explain three techniques for enhancing learning and memory for a specific population (such as students, children, teens, older adults, autistic individuals, or another special needs population).
Apply key theories and research relevant for the intended audience.
Communicate clearly, concisely, and directly, using active voice and in a manner consistent with the intended audience.
