Welcome to our Module 03 Discussion Board!
The purpose of this discussion is to consider our own experiences of remembering and forgetting. Remember that these discussions are a chance to practice using key PSYC101 concepts, so your contributions should include vocabulary and other connections to the module material. To prepare for the discussion, watch the linked videos below (National Science Foundation, 2015; TEDx Talks, 2017) and review your notes from the memory chapter of our textbook (King, 2021).

- Reflect on and discuss the topic below..
For your initial post:
- Describe a time when you forgot something or remembered it incorrectly. What happened? Be sure to include the following –
- What kind of memory was it to begin with? Episodic (an experience you had)? Semantic (a fact, date, name, etc)? Procedural (how to do something)?
- What do you think contributed to you forgetting or misremembering it? Did you try anything to help jog your memory?
- Did forgetting or misremembering this have any impact on your life? Share whatever you are comfortable sharing.
- How does your experience relate to what you learned in the videos? In your textbook?
- Be sure you cite your sources using APA style in-text citations and references.
Your initial post is due on FRIDAY. Be sure to address each aspect of the prompt above. Your post should be in the 300-350 range. APA-style references and citations must be used in the process of answering these questions. This means you should use an in-text citation after incorporating information from your textbook or course videos, and put the full reference at the end of your post.
