An article on Narration posted on the AO Advisory blog

The AO Advisory Blog “ArchipelagO”  posted a terrific article on Narration and it’s use in ancient times.

It includes this great quote by Erasmus:

“The master must not omit to set as an exercise the reproduction of what he has given to the class. It involves time and trouble to the teacher, I know well but it is essential. A literal reproduction of the matter taught is, of course, not required – but the substance of it presented in the pupil’s own way.”

Hope you enjoy the article!
