Do School Children Memorize Today? S/O Sorta
The article about the geneticist and intellegence made me think about something.
When I was in school, we memorized stuff regularly and often. I would venture to guess that by high school, the memory averaged out to 2 items a month that had to be memorized and presented to the teacher either orally or written on a test.
Do schools cultivate the skill of memorization today?
Do you think the skill of memorizing and recalling helps to exercise the brain and improve information retention?
