We covered a lot of ground to-day! We started out by talking about how to memorise the colloquy that I’ve assigned you.
- divide it into parts, so that you don’t have to learn it all at once (cue-cards are a god way of doing this)
- practise a little bit often, instead of trying to learn everything at once
- say it aloud
- find a rhythm, rhyme, or even a bit of music to help you remember what follows what
- practise, practise, practise!
After that, we began building our model of the Roman army in action.
Your homework is to finish preparing your colloquy. We shall present on Thursday, not Tuesday as originally planned.
