Our focus for this article therefore is examining the influence of culture on children's responses to story activities, and exploring the cultural practises repre- sented in their narratives. Another way of thinking about working memory is that we use working memory to manipulate information while we learn and complete tasks the retention of working memory is longer than short term memory and through working memory, we decide what information needs to be transferred to long term memory.
