Peps Mccrea’s ‘Memorable Teaching’: memory in the classroom

“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.”

L.P Hartley ‘The Go Between’

In the opening of L.P Hartley’s ‘The Go Between’ (sloth like process through the A-Z of classic literature reading challenge!) the protagonist, Leo Colston, discovers a red cardboard box which is full of inconsequential objects and a diary from over fifty years ago. This fascinating discovery leads him to reflect on his childhood experiences. Reading ‘The Go-Between’ and Peps Mccrea’s excellent ‘Memorable Teaching’ simultaneously this week has led to much pondering on the nature of memory and how it can be developed.
