Rote learning: Grandma’s way may be the best way

From a previous post, you may know that I am in the middle of trying to decide what type of education to choose for my child. Recently, I’ve been looking at a program that emphasizes a classical education with a lot of rote memorization. In trying to decide if rote memorization would be a good fit for my child, I found some surprising things. First, it appears that people need repetition to learn. For example, when a child is just learning to talk, he needs to hear a word at least 500 times before it becomes a part of his vocabulary. Second, it is not called rote memorization; it is learning by repetition. And third, adults are using spaced repetition to learn new information and skills more efficiently.
