Observer 2’s report – Rengasamy Darseni Description of personal lens (personal theory of learning) I believe every theory offers a perception of learning, illustrating specific dimension.

I consider the following definition of Alexander et.al.

Underachievement in school is damaging because it affects students' self-esteem, which hinders the child to reaching his full potential. Some common signs of underachievement in children may include lack of motivation or disinterest in school activities and tend to make excuses in doing so. The student may daydream or socialize too much, make school work the lowest priority, receive failing grades, take no satisfaction or pride in school work, see himself as having no chance to succeed, or seem to believe he is already defeated (Gearheart & Gearheart, 2010).
