What Is Semantic Memory?

For the purpose of this project the definition of semantic memory is "our organized knowledge of the world." (Matlin, p. 129) It is very straight forward and is required for determining locations, reading sentences, solving problems, and making decicions. Semantic memory is more "fact based" memories.

"Semantic memories are facts, figures, concepts and definitions.
Facts are usually stored without information about when and where they were learned."
-Meaning that we store the facts in semantic memory, but we don't store where or when we learned the facts. In our mind organize our facts and cocepts to make it more meaningful to ourselves. There are many ways that we enhance semantic memory of our students, from using hands on acitivities to allowing for more sleep.
