Rote Learning refers to skills that have been practiced to the point of being an automatic behavior that does not involve conscious thought. As we grow and practice daily activities, things like dishwashing, setting the table, doing laundry, traveling to familiar places, etc. exist as rote learning. In school, rote learning is academic tasks that have been practiced to the point of answering questions without the need to think. Examples of this are reciting the alphabet or the multiplication tables.
