The Peg-Word Mnemonic Facilitates Immediate but Not Long-Term Memory in Fifth-Grade Children.
Krinsky, Richard; Krinsky, Suzanne G.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v19 n2 p217-29 Apr 1994

Results provide additional evidence that long-term forgetting may be greater for learners who receive mnemonic instruction than for untrained controls, in spite of some immediate enhanced recall.
