Cognitive strategies also enables students to learn skills that will help them understand and organize information through reading strategies such as two column notes, repeat reading study skills, use of imagery and analogies, as well as effective application of clustering, graphic organizers and outlining.
Assignment #7: Article Summary (Comprehension) Comprehension is understanding the meaning and purpose of a text. There are several strategies that can help students improve their understanding of complex texts. According to Vukelich, Christie, and Enz (2008), one of the strategies is a literacy journal where “children can record observations, questions, and
The students found a visual art medium that they were comfortable working with, and it allowed them to think critically and creatively about the text. Because of this, the use of a visual art project and rubric to assess reading comprehension was “both rigorous and enjoyable for students” (Holdren, 2012, p. 703).
Understands the importance of applying the knowledge learned in the classroom to continued personal and career development potential. ~Takes ownership of the learning process by setting personal educational goals, and monitoring their own progress. At the beginning of every school week I open my assignments, make a
The read/write learner is advised to: develop lists, make outlines, obtain study guides, take notes, and write words to the notes several times. It is also recommended to read notes silently, rewrite and paraphrase ideas into other words. Converting graphs, charts, and diagrams into worded statements help the student with a strong read/write preference to understand the meanings contained in the visual material. Meaning is found in words; therefore the student with a read/write learning preference should search for words that describe the meaning of a concept by breaking the concept into textual points. (Fleming, n.d.).
An adaption that can be added into Julie’s assignment is the use of graphic organizers. These graphic organizers can be used for everyone in the class to organize their ideas and their main points. It can help Julie with her organization skills and it can provide a scaffold of her essay. Moreover to help her set a foundation a series of sentence starters can be provided so that she can begin to think about how she would like to start each of her essay paragraph.
Ms. Eubanks this is my second online class and I am trying my best to keep up. I am reading the assignment but not paying attention to the due dates. I did not submit graphic organizer assignment and been working on the research project all week. I have completed the research project and would like for you to give me feedback. Can I upload my graphic organizer and receive some points instead of a zero.
Why it is important that I understand what independent learning is? Holec H (1981: P.3) states that independent learning is the ability to take charge of one’s learning. In his view it is being able to make informed choices and take responsibility for your own learning activities. He says two important elements which are vital for the success of learning independently. He argues that motivation and being confident are key elements to take decisions independently and act on them.
“Self-determination theory (SDT) is a macro-theory of human motivation concerned with the development and functioning of personality within social contexts. In order for subjects to be considered “healthy”, they will exhibit high levels of autonomy, competence, and relatedness”. (Deci & Ryan, 2008). Humans have studied the idea of motivation as how to make themselves or others reach a specific goal, or find energy to act in front of a struggle in life. Such struggles include grades, evaluations, opinions they fear others might have of them, or many other challenging situations in life, or to find and keep moving forward in order to achieve goals of all kinds. many times a person feels tired, frustrated, or have a lack of energy to continue trying to solve or act somehow for their own good or even for others. Psychologists have found often that people are motivated by their needs, interests, curiosities or incentives in a short or long term, the midpoint between persons’ motives and needs to achieve their goals is part of the self-determination theory. A description of the respective roles and types of motivation in cognitive and social development and in individual differences, and also how social factors influence the initiative of the individuals such as competence, relatedness, and autonomy shows the strongest forms of motivation.
Do we ask ourselves why we go to school everyday? Why we must be educated? Why we are learning? The answers are clearly understandable because everyone has his/her own particular reason. One person would like to get a job; one would like to come up with something new; another would like to invent something that has not existed before. Simply, no one can accept being without a job or an education. I would introduce my personal theory as a Self-Based-Learning (SBL), which is a pedagogical learning theory that occurs personally by someone who is able to synthesize a group of actions that can help him/her to learn naturally. Learning on your own can happen by focusing on three approaches of theories that are problem-based learning, constructivism theory, and self-directed learning. The SBL theory can influence society, human performance, and education. The learner will be the center of knowledge that will interact with multiple aids that assist him/her to become an expert or inventor. Those aids are informal learning, formal learning, and collective learning. The SBL theory will take place under instructor/teacher supervision in order to keep the learners on track. Furthermore, the teacher should aim and motivate the learners’ achievements, performance and outcomes. Self-based learning is a strategy supported by multiple learning theories; each one of these theories should be interpreted to clarify the concepts of my personal theory, which is self-based learning strategy.
Keywords: self-determination, transition, postsecondary outcomes, disabilities, special education, adolescents, student participation, IEP Introduction: The Declaration of Independence states that we have the unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This statement also includes the right to make decisions about your own life and future. For all students becoming independent, making choices, decisions, and setting goals is an integral part of adulthood. Developing self-determination skills is important in achieving success in school and as an
1a. Self-Directed Learning: This requires in-depth learning in topics or course of study without being directed by a lecturer or teacher. The self-directed learner must have integrity, self-esteem, and self-confidence in order to achieve a balance in learning and understanding what is learned with a view to putting down words in writing or in research to the understanding of the targeted audience to which the paper was written. It involves taking initiative, independence mindset, and persistence in reading, ability to view problems and challenges as not being an obstacle to learn, creating schedules and abiding by it is effective and important to achieving the goal of learning.
Another important goal for me is to help my students gradually become autonomous learners. They should be aware that learning can take place everywhere and learning should not only happen in the classroom. They should bear in mind that they are the main actors in the classroom. They have to determine on their learning outcome. This cannot be done alone and teacher has to support them with great enthusiasm. I will carefully plan the lessons and allow students more choices on their studies. I also aim to give them more project work and tasks so that they can do more research on their own. At the same time, I will focus on assigning them to work collaboratively with their friends in order to build their relationship among them. I plan to help them learn independently by using new technology as well. In order to make it happen, I have prepared a list of good links based on English learning content for them to do self-study at home and in the library. In my class, I would like the
