I came across this series of blog posts that are (I think) an EXCELLENT self-paced mini-seminar on classical rhetoric, rhetorical technique, and clinic on speaking. Of these five components, I find MEMORY my weakest point.
I'm all about home-schooling when it comes to this type of self-improvement, and thought others may be interested in this as well. We certainly will have plenty of opportunities to practice in the coming months and years. So, if you would find this helpful, bookmark these pages, and talk it up!
