I think that you can use the web to help you in order to come up with different ways to memorize the amendments. For example, the first amendment can be remembered with the acronym, "SPRAP." SPRAP would refer to speech, petition, religion, assembly, and petition. The second amendment can be remembered by "two bare arms." There are many more like this. For example, 22nd Amendment refers to the length of term of the President as four years (2 + 2= 4). Additionally, "23= People vote out of D.C" is another way to remember this particular amendment. The tips and tricks to memorize amendments are all there. In the end, it will come down to memorizing amendments like running lines from a script. From students I have taught, this is a process that will require a great deal of commitment and time. It is not something that will happen overnight. Yet, over time, using the tips and tricks that are out there on the net or even your own ways of memorizing (4th amendment= "Search and Seizure" and this is four syllables to remind me of the fourth amendment), I think you will have a stronger grasp of the 27 Amendments to the Constitution.
yes just remember that about how many amendments there are
