Learning How to Learn Response Essay Everyone has learned something in their lifetime, most of us have done our harder learning at school. In school students learn math, history, English, science and other subjects. What they don’t learn is how to learn these subjects. In this video “Learning how To Learn”, Barbara Oakley, a professor of engineering, points out the main ways of how to learn. She mentions how most teachers use metaphor and analogy to teacher, and she uses these a lot in her explaining how to learn.
Everyone in their life has learned something either by learning from others or from themselves (Archetypes, Intellectual archetypes). This is what being a student is, learning or constantly wanting to learn different things in your life (Caroline Myss). As once said by Martha Graham, “There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.” Every experience is a learning experience and you gain something from it whether its
The pattern is people go through the “key Steps” in their life, even though sometimes you do not realize it. Step One is a “Normal World” which is a world a person is used to. For example, most kids are used to school and when you get out of school it is a new world you have to get accustomed to. There is a chart in the Hero 's Journey and it states “every rule, and its concept to our everyday life” from start to finish (5).

In To Kill A Mockingbird there are a lot of themes but one of the main ones was growing up. Scout and Jem grew up a lot from Mrs Dubose and from the trial and from Arthur. They grew up from a lot of different small and big events that changed their view on life. It's just like kids in real life and how they grow up from a bunch of events and
In the book, having their own quarrel as a kid is what set’s their reputation and future characteristics. In life, having your own experiences and behavior corrections is what sets your mindset, being fixed or growth. What you develop as a kid practically follows you and it is there for the rest of your life. This is one of the most important things we’ve talked about in class in my
Nowadays it still hard for me to concentrate, but you have to learn how to deal with that. Because of this, I always was waiting for my mom to ask me questions about the topics, and she also was aware of the three of us, not just one. Also, the environments of schools helped me learn responsibility and were also able to sign up for after school to get help with my homework instead of leaving the entire responsibility to my
Also what surprised me me was that school counselors do not have much time to be alone and think, they are always moving, as with any other teacher. I think that the best part of the job is getting to work with children all day. Even now, at the age of twelve, I like babysitting little kids. Some of the disadvantages of being a school counselor, according to Ben, feeling overwhelmed and working with students that want him to make the decision for them. Also facing the hard and emotional parts of life.
It is the family‘s responsibility to teach children cultural values and attitudes about themselves and others. Children learn continuously from the environment that adults create (Macionis & Gerber, 2011). Religion, language, legal systems, peer groups and media also have a great effect on the socialization process. Most of these aspects are also taught at schools. Schools are the places where children interact with other members of society which makes education and schooling the second most important agent of gender
Through my friends, who I considered my family, I learned how to manage the difficulties of both school and a social life. Throughout the majority of high school and middle school, I had a very unconventional microsystem. At home, my family was emotionally draining. I struggled with argument and abuse, so I relied on my peers and school to get me through each and every day. I learned to find friends and be academically successful all on my own.
Although my mentee is different than me in some ways, we have found various ways to connect on other subjects. I have helped my mentee go from making C’s in all of her classes, to now being an honor roll student. We’ve worked each session on study skills, time management and organization. It has been so rewarding seeing her achieve all of her goals she has set for herself at the beginning of the year. Also, aside from grades and school my mentee struggles from a lot of changes that happens in their home.
You learn life lessons almost everywhere you go and anything you see. In movies, from people, online and especially in books. For me, the book “Unspeakable” by Caroline Pignat is filled with different main ideas and life lessons everyone should know. But the one I think is the most important is that losing someone isn’t the end of your world. In the text Ellie had lost a lot of people.
I was given the opportunity to influence and inspire others. I learned a lot from this opportunity. I learned that not everyone is as fortunate as myself, but most of all I learned how to be there for someone. I knew each week that even if I felt sick, I would be at that elementary school, helping that child to the best of my ability. On top of spending numerous hours at clubs, I could always be found studying or working on a project.
I have made many connections with MAT 139 this semester. When I was in the tutor program we were required to get some field experience by helping students. I chose to help three and four year olds with math. Although the material was adding, I was able to apply the skills I learned in the tutor program to teach the kids. My teacher in MAT 139 would show us multiple ways to solve a problem so when teaching the children I would use more than one method to get them to learn the subject matter (Hammond, pg 2).
The children I work with all have a communication difficulty, many remain non verbal and learn to use an augmentative communication system which will be suited to their individuals needs. Communication is imbedded throughout the whole school curriculum, as a practitioner I strive to find effective strategies to support the children’s communication. Introduction I first became aware of the work of Gina Davies when I began a distance learning course at Birmingham University WEB AUTISM. During the course material we were given a range of examples of the best practice in autism education. One example that stood out and intrigued me amongst the many I observed was a film clip of an interview by Gina Davies.
School has been around for many years now. Countless of people every year attend this place in order to gain knowledge and grow as a person. The education an institution provides can vary from literature, philosophy, language, and so on. Willona M. Sloan has done research upon the purpose of education and found that it has to do with “[supporting] children 's ability to become lifelong learners who are able to love, work, and act as responsible members of the community” (pg 9). Although education serves a role in a person’s life, is the material provided to educate these students sufficient though?
