Include the following in your presentation:
How the brain processes information, including sensory information

Analysis of the capacity and limitations of working memory and long-term memory
Strategies to apply information processing to classroom instruction. Include at least one strategy for Birth to PreK, K-12, and adult learners.

Support your presentation with 2-3 scholarly resources.
