Melodic-Mnemonics is a method of teaching science through multi-media and music-video production developed by T.H. Culhane. The idea is to use all the vocabulary words from each chapter in the textbook to compose lyrics, then set them to music, then illustrate them with appropriate imagery. The act of creating the presentation, the repitition involved in the production process, and the melody acting as a carrier wave, creates a powerful mnemonic device.
