Static and Dynamic Knowledge
Static knowledge is the learning of isolated facts normally through rote learning. Rote learning focuses on the memorization of information with the hope that the more one repeats the information the more one will learn.

He is an attractive, erudite, Ivy League educated man from a Pulitzer prize winning prominent literary family. After multiple wins on the quiz, Charlie is continuing to attract views and is rising to national stardom. He is featured on the covers of Life and Time magazines. He clearly is provoking in an
