Mnemonic Instruction, with a Focus on Transfer.
Carney, Russell N.; Levin, Joel R.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n4 p783-90 Dec 2000
Examines mnemonic transfer in the form of knowledge generalization in the context of an artwork-learning task. Results reveal that mnemonic instruction produced memory benefits on a direct test, and that on a transfer task, mnemonic students who were directed to focus on the general style of the artist outperformed students who focused on details of the paintings.
