Memory Work Companion Now Available

From Paula's blog over at
I am pleased to announce that Drew's new memory work book is now available. He is the author of The Latin-Centered Curriculum, the book that has truly revolutionized our homeschool. I plan to place my order this week.

Here is some information regarding the content of the book from Drew himself.

My Memory Work book, Living Memory, is now available! This is the book mentioned in LCC2.Here's the description:Tantum scimus quantum memoria retinemus: We only know as much as we retain by memory. While progressive reformers denigrate "rote memorization," classical educators from Quintilian to St. ThomasAquinas have always known that memory work is an essential part of acomplete education. Now you can give your students the benefits of classical memorytraining with Living Memory. This comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation can be used with any classical curriculum or as a handy reference for home or school. With this pick-up-and-teach book your students can master:* proverbs, maxims, and famous sayings in English, Latin, and Greek* dozens of beloved English poems, from Mother Goose to Shakespeare* stirring historical speeches from Cicero to Churchill* more than 60 English hymns and carols plus traditional hymns inLatin and Greek* prayers, psalms, and Bible memory verses in English, Latin, and Greek* important geography and history facts* favorite American folk songs* essential arithmetic facts and mathematical formulas* key science facts* a succinct English grammar "catechism" for students of Latin* fundamental Latin and Greek grammar forms.

Dr. Andrew Campbell's introduction draws on both ancient memory techniques and modern research to explain the importance of memory ineducation. He explains how to integrate memory work into your existing curriculum and how to use four key skills to assure success in memorytraining. Please free free to spread the word so we can support Drew in his latest endeavor.
