Ann Brown, a counterpart to my last post.

Ann Leslie Brown was an educational psychologist who developed methods of teaching children to be better in the learning process. Her interest in human memory led Brown to focus on the active memory strategies that would help improve memory and developmental differences in memory tasks. Her understanding of the learning difficulties of children usually came from an inability to use metacognitive strategies such as summary, led to profound advances in the theory of educational psychology and teaching procedures
Brown earned a doctorate in psychology from the University of London after research under the title “Performance Anxiety and Complex Learning in Children.” He later moved to the United States where she met her husband and collaborator Joseph Campione. Brown received several prestigious awards for her research and was president of the American Educational Research Association.
