Doodling sort of anchors me to pen, paper, and the lecture. I also enjoy and benefit from taking part in class discussions and speaking in front of the class. I find that when I speak in front of the class, or ask questions, I retain that information better. There are times in class where I can fall behind, or get a bit confused, and at this time I refer to the book to help get me back on course with the rest of the class. Assignments can also get me a bit confused.
These LearnSmart assignments give us students questions over the assigned chapter. In this course, we have had to do these assignments before we go over the content in class. The class benefits from this
Behaviorism is the concept on what people see based on their behaviors. Students under these courses tend to have distinct learning strategies, and apply their knowledge on different ways. On the studies conducted by Smith, Zsidisin and Adams (2005) the importance of assignments, homework, quizzes and tests are related to student learning. Student learning also affects student performance. According to Rich (2006) and Johnson, et.
“Motivation is a complex part of human psychology and behavior that influences how individuals choose to invest their time, how much energy they exert in any given task, how they think and feel about the task, and how long they persist at the task” (Urdan & Schoenfelder, 2006). The biggest question educators face in today’s classroom is what motivates a student to do something and why? Virtually all students are motivated in one way or another. Research of student motivation suggests a theory that emphasizes a social-cognitive perspective. The cognition of students regarding academic work are influenced by social factors, such as messages from the teacher about the difficulty of the task, the perceived abilities of classmates, and the information about the importance of learning the material (Urdan & Schoenfelder, 2006).
Many teachers’ lecture notes contain a great deal of information. They do this for a reason and it is to coerce the student into reading the text and figuring out what is important. This helps the student understand the material better without spoon-feeding the student the key points of the information. Student-to-student studying is a significant technique to learning. When one student has his information down pat, they can teach other students.
Part of the issues students face comes from the ideals of the college system. Similar to the ideals of our country, the values of colleges are fed by the idea of competitive individualism: if you work hard enough, you will succeed. But this is not always possible. The Structural Functional perspective view of this issue states that the reason people fail is because they aren’t trying hard enough. The resources are all there, they just need to be used.
I will also take note and jot down the useful information. If I don’t understand something about it, I will ask for guidance from my lecturer or friends. After the end of the class, I will summarise the information and the note that I had study just now. And also do the revision immediately, because the memory of us is very short, we should review it so as not to forget it. Repeat an action and new information will be take it.
In today’s society it is important to receive a college education to join the workforce. However, the transition from high school to college can be a very intimidating experience for many students. To make the college transition less frightening, students can take several precautions while still in high school. These precautions include participating in extracurricular activities, taking challenging courses, as well as developing good time management skills. Participation in extracurricular activities is important in succeeding in a college environment because it helps students to explore their interests and talents.
Journal writing involves students keeping a "diary" of information that they or the teacher think is important to learn or remember. It is a "source book" according to Les Parsons, which can involve reactions to readings, discussions, television programs or advertisements, movies, rock videos, small group discussions where these ideas, thoughts, or opinions can be reflected on to be used later in another context. I think that this is very important to the subject matter and the unit I will be teaching. The Holocaust is a very emotional and sensitive topic and I think it is beneficial for students to have the opportunity to express their thou... ... middle of paper ... ... or by meeting requirements which the teacher and students decide need to be included in the journal entries. According to many teachers and professors, journal writing appears to be very beneficial to classroom learning.
