Abstract

In an education world where memorization is a primary focus, theater provides an ideal situation to test various memorization techniques. In this memorization study, four classes were each assigned one technique each to memorize a monologue from Moliere’s Tartuffe. Students were tasked to use one of four techniques: aural memorization, segmented memorization, partner memorization and written memorization. This presentation walks through the findings of those four memorization techniques and ultimately the various impacts of defined rote memorization upon students.
