Abstract: We argue that the addition of people knowledge to curricula has the potential--still largely unrecognized--to improve classroom learning. We describe the results of two studies on people knowledge and learning. Study 1 indicates that narrative information organized around familiar, as contrasted with unfamiliar, people is better remembered and judged to be more interesting and concrete by learners. Study 2 focuses on people knowledge and learning and transfer of pedagogical content knowledge.
