Children's Memory and Learning

Research Projects


We study the development of memory over the preschool and early school years years, and the important role of parent-child conversational interactions for children’s learning and remembering. Some work involves providing parents with information about conversational techniques (such as asking Why, How, and What questions) that can help children understand and remember their experiences. Other work focuses on styles of conversation that are most effective in fostering understanding and the retention and extension of information encountered museums.
