I Before E: Some Rules for Remembering

There is no saying this any other way: I am old. I use phrases like "carrying coals to Newcastle" which few people have a frame of reference for any longer. Perhaps that is one reason I found I BEFORE E (Reader's Digest 2011; available from netgalley) by Susan Randol such familiar territory. How do we create mnemonic devices to help us remember rules and the order of the planets and the Great Lakes? Here they are in one book. Share some with your students and encourage them 9as the book does) to create their own ways of keeping things stored in their memory. <651>
