However, since the senses are susceptible to personal interpretation, they are therefore potentially unreliable sources of data. If one is able of rationally thinking through the information that they perceive, then they are more likely to make accurate assumptions. However, if one is highly emotive, they may not be able to separate the emotion from the data they perceive,
Schema theory posits that all knowledge is organized into units (schemata) within which information is drawn. A schema is a mental block/representation that brings to mind further information linked to the original concept through association (Kalat, 2011). These schemas/mental representations affect the interpretation of information; thus its comprehension and they change as new information is received. The elaborative theory asserts that content to be learned should be organized from simple to complex while providing a meaningful context in which ensuing ideas can be integrated. The approach facilitates rapid prototyping, as it values a set of instructions that are as holistic as possible to promote meaningfulness and motivation.
Procrastination, I struggle with procrastination a lot in my academics. Procrastination is when you put off or delay something until the last minute. I struggle with this in school because I don 't like to sit down and do my schoolwork. I then wait until the last minute to do it and I try to cram in in and finish it in time. I never do a great drop on assignments when I do them at the last minute because I am rushed and don 't take my time.
Should Students be held back for bad grades? ¨Grades do not measure intelligence¨. A lot of our society is thinking that students should be held back if they are getting bad grades,some people don 't understand how this will really work in the near future, lots of students try and hate to fail, but sometimes we have to fail to succeed. Students should not be held back for bad grades, some students don’t test well, but they always turn in their assignments. Students don’t try to fail, sometimes it’s just the class they don’t comprehend.
I set everyday goals that helps me not to think about those voices that told me I wasn’t able. Going to tutoring to get help with work so I won’t fail test. Studying is a goal I need to really set because when I try to study I hear the word stupid over and from the teacher’s voice. It stops me from working and I get stuck like I’m in a spell but I’m working hard to find ways to study. Moving forward will always will be hard fear or no fear so if you have goals reach for them until your grip is secure and move
I’ll tell you exactly how to get an A, but you’ll have a hard time hearing me. I could hardly hear my own professors when I was in college over the din and roar of my own fear. Those who aim for A’s don’t get as many A’s as those who abandon the quest for A’s and seek knowledge or at least curiosity. I had bookmarked a citation for that fact, and now I can’t find it anywhere. The only way to seek knowledge is to open your hands and let your opinions drop, but that requires even more fear.
3.4.2. Self-regulation Self-regulation is been defined as “self-generated thoughts, feelings, and actions that are planned and cyclically adapted to the attainment of personal goals” (Zimmerman 2000: 14 as cited in Ghanizadeh and Mirzaee 2012: 453). As much as self-regulation is important in language acquisition, as much it is important in critical thinking. More importantly, self-regulation is regarded as an essential integral element of critical thinking (Afshar and Movassagh 2014). In SLA, on the other hand, self-regulation is rather a final goal than an element of acquisition, because the final aim of SLA teacher is to help learners to think autonomously in the target language.
I would now like to talk about my most important learnings about failure from this semester and how this has shaped my current understanding of failure. Before this semester started, I never actually considered the idea that failure is looked at differently in different contexts. Our discussions about how failure is looked at in the field of science had a great impact on my overall perception of failure. Almost always, our instant reaction to a failure is negative, and we very rarely try and and extract all the good things that we can take from that failure. Science is a field which has mastered this art of extracting the good from failure.
Stufflebeam in 1971. Stufflebeam et al (1971) consider evaluation as “the process of delineating, obtaining, and providing useful and information for judging decision alternatives” (p.34). In Stufflebeam’s definition, there are two noticeable features of evaluation which should be attentively noticed. First, evaluation is an enduring procedure which is vigorous, flexible, and adaptable. Second, major stages of evaluation process comprise procuring and attaining information, and then delivering those evaluative data to the decision makers.
Justin and I have talked extensively concerning his academic performance. One observation I have made in working with him is sometimes when he doesn’t understand something he simply stops. Instead of skipping a problem he doesn’t understand, then come back to it later, his choice is to simply stop working on the paper. One of my goals for him this year is to have the courage to try completing an assignment and not be afraid to be wrong. Sometimes when he comes to me for help, he hasn’t even read the related passage so attempting to answer the question is an impossibility.
