Looking ahead, I think that there are two areas we have learned about that will be prevalent in my future. The first of these would be all that we have learned about memory. Throughout my life, I have felt like a have a pretty good memory, but I think many of the strategies and ideas that we learned about have explained to me how memory works and why it works better at some times more than others. Learning about "chunking" I fell will help me because I now know a way to commit things to memory more permanently. Also, I felt reinforced when we learned that studying earlier and more often is better than cramming everything in the night before.
The second concept I think will stick with me would be the parenting styles. As I read through that part of the chapter, I looked back at my own childhood and appreciated even more the way I was raised. While some may say that these styles are subjective and that you can't say one way is better than another, I think that these styles do lead to people who are either more or less equipped to enter and be helpful to society.
