This research is to aim more to see my, Marrissa Roller, retention in memory. I am an 20-year old college student who studies in America, who suffers from seizures. I’ve had seizures since I was ten years old, seizures can cause brain damage.
In this book, the author describes the long process it takes to create a national museum that will commemorate the Holocaust. He covers issues such as, the location of it, the design and construction aspects of the museum building. He informs readers about how they’ve tried to represent the Holocaust through the museum with sensitivity. I will use specific facts from this book to show that this museum was built with the help of many and required a lot of thought into it. I will show that this museum does in fact show sensitivity to an individual.
Thoughts can be fleeting, however some of the feelings resulting from thought and can have a long lasting impact on the mental state of a person. In my metacognitive exploration I found an interesting comparison between the way in which I think and approach my past feelings and the methods which Tim O’Brien, from The Things They Carried, and Paul D from Beloved express their thinking about the past. I have discovered that the expression of thoughts, including memories and feelings, is the key to a healthy mental state of a person.
This student’s preferred learning strategy has always been that of the read/write category. She takes advantage of handouts, textbooks, and dictionaries when studying for quizzes and exams. She also prefers going to the library due to the atmosphere provided by this institution. To enhance learning the use of outlines and note cards have also been useful when studying. Visual aids accompanying the read/write category have been useful in obtaining good grades throughout advancement in education (VARK, 2011).
of taking pen and paper notes. However, this paper will tell you, from a student's point of view,
This study set out to prove that when using technology for note-taking and assessing information in conjunction with each other there will be an increase in student performance. The data aligns with the initial hypothesis of the study and is backed by past studies findings, like Mogey’s study in 2007 and Russell and Haney’s study in 1997. The information in the article strongly aligns with the purpose of the article and does not give any superfluous information. The researchers also note threats to internal validity and the steps they took to remedy them, like using “two experimenters…as redundant quiz graders, each separately grading every participant’s quiz” (52) and having all handwritten notes converted to typed text to combat the bias that is common in grading. They also attempt to provide alternative explanations for “the results of studies demonstrating positive (e.g., Goldberg et al., 2003) or negative (e.g., MacCann et al., 2002) effects” (55), like the possibility that the location of the student had an effect on performance instead
Teaching children handwriting has been an accepted and integral part of early childhood education. But the Common Core Standards that many schools have now adopted no longer require that handwriting be taught past kindergarten and first grade. Should such methods be abandoned? Is writing even helpful? Don’t we have computers to do the writing for us, so do we really need handwriting? Is writing effective? Maria Konnikova addresses these questions in her article What’s Lost as Handwriting Fades published in The New York Times on June 2, 2014. She cites the concerns of neuroscientists and psychologists that handwriting has long term benefits in both children and adults. Writing stimulates neurons in the brain to increase learning, memory, and
In the article Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away by NPR gives the evidence that taking notes by hand helps you retain the information better than transcribing them on a computer. The went on to present the findings of a study by Mueller and Oppenheimer, two college professors. The professors write “ This is suggestive evidence that longhand notes may have a superior external storage as well as superior encoding functions” (NPR, 2). This clearly suggests that their findings lead to the conclusion that longhand notes are more successful. In cessation, NPR showcases the undeniable fact that handwritten notes receive a more preferable outcome for students.
In Milton Meltzer’s excerpt “Is it Necessary to Remember?” from the book “We Must Never Forget," he explores deeply into the reasons of the Holocaust, the Nazis, and comparisons in modern life. Firstly, when Meltzer writes, “No one would claim that the Nazi extermination of the Jews was greater or more tragic than what has been done to other persecuted peoples.Some comparisons are unfeeling and fruitless”(1). I feel that this quote means that any comparison of one person to be a “Nazi” or “Hitler” would be a serious topic and not to be spoken of. Because of what the Nazis did to Jews, comparisons are inferior to normal civilians. Also, Meltzer writes and explains about Jews’ “race”to Hitler and that Jews are inferior and deserve to be killed.
It’s important for all us to strive to continuously improve in our daily lives and our students are no different. In our classroom, we learn study skills that will help us reach our potential. We will address our students learning styles, time management and organization skills, note- taking skills, test-taking skills, and reading skills. All of this will be done by incorporating Learning to Learn by Gloria Freder. This book uses proven practical hints, methods, procedures, and tools that help students succeed in school and in life.
First, Read. I know that many of us would wish that we don’t have to read in order to write well. How often do we wish that it would come down as a gift? The bad news is, as Silvia stated, there was no such gift. Writing, he argues, is a habit that that needs to be done
It is used as an organisational tool, mode of communication, transferring information to another, a prompt for thinking and, to reinforce relationships (Cremin & Myhill, 2012). An example would be making a list of things to do in a piece of paper to be reminded of tasks and duties. Curriculum and policy documentation of writing may not always sharpen the child's writing skills. It can help as a guideline but writers are developed through writing and reflecting on their writing experiences (Cremin & Myhill, 2012). Completing writing exercises and implementing reading journals can improve an individual’s writing skills. Writing is a participation to set a specific social practise. It is then shaped by social and historical understanding about what writing is, what form it takes and what it is good for in specific contexts (Cremin & Myhill, 2012). For example, Arabians has their own form of language which is in Arabic symbols instead of letters like the English language. Language can symbolise an individual. Educators should inspire their students to learn a different language other than their native language. The twenty-first century’s technology has helped the way language has
Get the facts as right as possible with research, asking questions, checking original sources, journals and newspapers. Also fill in the blanks of memory but disclose uncertainty. A a possible limitation of writing is memory is
The previously mentioned recommended learning strategies for the very strong read/write learning preference of this student compare near-perfectly with the strategies currently in use. This student however, frequently incorporates visual approaches to writing by using different colored highlighters to categorize and connect different thoughts. Sticky notes, often having various bright colors, adorn books, periodicals, Bibles, and even the course syllabus for this class. Often when communicating in writing with others, words are circled followed by arrows that point to a reply the writer has written. Visual learning strategies are very important to this author’s success
