A visual (spatial) learner, learns by associating information with images. A visual learner remembers and understand information presented by sight. These specific learners must first see what they are expected to retain. Visual learners have certain characteristics that make their learning style unique. They generally use color to organize information, study by looking over things, uses diagrams and charts to understand concepts and ideas, and are good at spelling.

I was becoming stressed as the time was getting closer and closer to midnight. I knew that I had to get this assignment done before I procrastinate any longer. I may have a small problem with procrastination, however, I had tried not to for this assignment. This is my first online college class and I wasn't sure what to expect as I am only a Sophmore in high school. Even though it is a practice assignment about plagiarism, I still wanted to do my best. My hands were shaking I as was trying to finish writing the paper. I kept hitting the wrong letters, which was not helping me.
Completing these quizzes has helped me better understand my ability to succeed as an online psychology student. The results from the SORT quiz made complete sense. I scored high in the life factor, personal attributes, and tech competency. This means that I do not have many distractions or other responsibilities to interfere with my schooling. I have a great support system, including my family, coworkers, and my boyfriend. I also know quite a bit about using a computer. I scored lower in technology knowledge meaning that I am not very useful when it comes to fixing computers. Lastly, for this quiz, I scored lower in the reading recall section. I believe this just means that I need to pay more attention to details within the writing I am reading.

Smarthinking provides a variety of services for students who need help with their studies. The writing center would benefit me the most. There are times I make careless mistakes. However, the writing center is a resource that analyzes writing before submitting the final draft.

In “Technology in Today’s Classroom: Are You a Tech-Savvy Teacher?”, Stephanie Hicks successfully argues, using primarily logical evidence, that teachers should integrate technology into education. Hicks begins by stating, “In today’s classroom technology abounds and students are extremely tech savvy,” using this claim to justify the need for teachers to implement the use of technology (188). Her statement regarding students and their technological knowledge logically introduces the argument because of its easily observable nature. In addition, because students have a sense of familiarity and experience with computers, it follows that the use of such technology would suit their educational needs. Hicks begins her argument by countering the
Pie charts 1 and 2 show the difference in our source choices prior to taking Composition I in college and during Project 3. Before this course, we were more prone to using books and websites as opposed to databases. For project 3, we mainly used databases as well as .org sources. This shows that we are using more objective, factual sources, while books usually have a bias or are trying to prove a point. Our sources for project 3 were also more diverse than those used before this class. For project three magazine articles and a gallup poll come into play. This is a hint that after taking this course we have expanded our view of what sources are helpful.
As a virtual public school student, grit has been largely required of me to reach the levels of excellence I have set for myself because this type of schooling requires discipline and independence. This in turn is preparing me for the independent atmosphere of college.

I believe these qualities will help me in college as I interact with peers and professor. I thank the Delta Sigma Theta Chapter of the Brazos County for taking the time to review my
