Just heard this memorizing hint, which probably isn’t good for a younger child. But for high schoolers and college age kids – and their parents, it sounds very promising.
If you have to memorize anything that can be put onto notecards, set a stack of the cards beside your alarm clock, and set the clock to go off in the middle of the night. When the alarm sounds, go through the cards very briefly, then go back to sleep.
The person explaining this said that he learned it from a college professor, and that it really, really worked.
What do you think?
