One thought on “Quintilian Commonplace

  1. Thank you for this post! I love these ideas to use for memorization! I have done a fair amonut of speaking over the years, but I have never been a believer in memorizing word-for-word my talks. Of course, my talks are usually technical in nature, either reporting on something or teaching something new. However, I love the ideas used here in working on memorizing speeches.I am going to start having the boys (and me) work on Poetry Memorization in the upcoming year and these ideas should help us a lot! I really like the placing certains parts of the speech (or poem) in certain parts of the room! This is wonderful! I think this will help a lot.The other important idea that I am taking from this post is the repetitive layering technique. The only time I have used this in the past was when I was helping my son learn his Cub Scout promise and Law of the Pack! Now we will be using this for anything we have to memorize!Thank you!
