Why is My Teen So Forgetful?

David Wilcox, of Musings on the Middle Years of Education, and I have worked together to create an infographic about the teen brain. It is based on a blog post he wrote over a year ago (Click here for that post) to tackle the issue of Why Teens Forget. Through lots of research, checking facts, and rechecking facts, we have found that teens forgetfulness may be due to major changes in their brain. These changes can last into the college years.

While there is research that demonstrates the increased forgetfulness of “teens,” we also found that research suggests this time period is an awesome explosion of learning and discovery that takes them into adulthood.

Thanks, David! It was a great experience to collaborate on these and to learn how I can better help my students.

This is the infographic divided into 3, so we can share it with our families with teenagers.
