Two groups of recovered memories Research showed that there are two types of recovered memory experiences (Shobe & Schooler, 2001). In the recovered in therapy type, the memories of abuse are recovered gradually, mostly in a therapeutic context. For instance, consider a case study of Ten Broeke & Merckelbach (1996) in which a woman named Ellen went to a hypnotherapist for having sleeping- and anxiety problems. After three 2-hour sessions with this hypnotherapist, Ellen recollected a memory about her father. She remembered laying on her bed with her father bending over her.
“Alzheimer’s” by Kelly Cherry is a rather depressing read focused on the tragedy of a man stricken with Alzheimer’s, her father no less. The man remembers that he was a musician, but mourns over the fact that he no longer has time for music as there are more pressing matters at hand now. Although he has this disease, he still can remember details of his life by thinking about his music, including clothing worn at the time. What will be discussed and examined is the context clues the poem provides about the what the man’s life used to be like, describe what the man’s life is like now, and the general function of the poem’s setting.
In the reading “Amusing Ourselves to Death” by Neil Postman, the most surprising aspect is when he talks about how people do not remember anything they watched on television. According to Postman, Stern said 51 percent of viewers could not recall a single item of news a few minutes after viewing a news program on television” (p152). This is surprising because I believe that a lot of people could recall the news from television, especially when the anchor mention the news story more than once. One time before a commercial break and when the anchor is talking is about it. And when there is breaking news, the anchor spends most of the newscast talking about the topic.

Drama Assessment Task S1 Task 2 Non Realist Devised Group Performance Isolation is being separated from other people or environments. In my group’s performance, Hazy Memories, we used several theories and techniques of the two dramatic forms studied to communicate the theme of isolation. Through different Epic Theatre and Absurdist techniques we communicated the theme of isolation, by the use of a circular plot line, an episodic structure, music, gestures, and characters all in black. We used the technique of a circular plot line and placards to show the isolation of a man who develops dementia over time.
The door of my green Focus latches. The cool autumn air fills my lungs as I stand staring. The gravel underneath my suede boots crunches as I hesitantly march across the driveway. As I walk up the steps I used to run up as a child, I turn to my left and I see her through the window. It had been months.
