Precision, Technical Reasoning, And Confluence Learning Pattern Analysis

Superior Essays
Taking this class has been the true definition of Learning. “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Henry Ford. That was the quote I referred to the first week of class. It meant learning is a constant mind stimulant that involves a Sequence, Precision, Technical Reasoning, and Confluence Learning Pattern. Sequence is learning well with labels, alphabetical, or organization. Precision is understanding with exact information, and not feeling the need to skim while reading, rather you read all of the detailed aspects of the assignment given. Technical Reasoning is a Learning Pattern that you tend to enjoy problem solving, building, or doing things hands on to experience what is going …show more content…
The strategies I used specifically for this course became more and more intentional as the weeks went on. With reading material, I made sure it was always quiet and my phone was turned on silent and flipped over so my mind could push through for the hour and really focus on what the conclusion of the material was. There were a couple of times I had been lazy and the Chapter Quizzes were getting harder to do because I was skimming and rushing through the information I needed to retain. With the Discussions, I have always enjoyed those because they were organized and arranged in a way my brain could function and finish the assignment with a better grasp of that Week that I was Learning about. I definitely finished the Discussions first before any other homework I had. The assignments were mainly Precision and Confluence leading them to be more fun and challenging because I knew there was going to be an analytical aspect that we would need exact information and our own opinions to tie together. I made sure they were done last actually because I needed to re-read (which is new for me) and highlight exact information before I could even glance at the Assignment. And the quizzes were fun because I would take them right after I did my Discussions and had highlighted so the information was clear in my mind. I took advantage of my strengths the moment I noticed what I needed to work on. I …show more content…
I will take each assignment and aim higher for my awareness in my Learning Pattern and decode what is being asked of me.
Reflecting on the past five weeks I am amazed at how much I could learn about learning, intentionally learning. I enjoyed the applications we openly had within ourselves and others. There was a lot of encouragement as well as feedback. After Week 3 I got a little frustrated because I felt it was a little repetitive, but then I wouldn 't have learned as much if it weren 't for reading, processing, and applying. I am more excited about school than I ever have been.
I know what I am doing and have an idea on how to exceed expectations when I have never understood how some people are so confident in their study abilities, decoding is something that I will perfect, along with the word wall. I didn 't have expectations, but I think this class is crucial for anyone even if you aren 't in school. I have learned how to communicate better with people and to decode my translations of things like directions or stories, it was a life changing

    In the final unit, Essays and Papers, I learned well to research and to go crazy when searching for good resources. Newport has given me a good idea to write in pieces because it will help me incredibly when it came to deadlines. Making an outline is also an important tip I now take seriously because it helped me in the last assignment. The tips that were not effective were the ones I forgot. I would recommend this book because I have learned a lot from it and appreciate the tips.…

    The semester is almost over now. I took Composition and rhetoric, obviously, because it is a compulsory course, but further than that I was truly excited to see what it could offer. English has always been my passion and a language I wanted to learn to perfection. I am glad to say that this course did not disappoint; it has been a class that helped me improved my writing abilities, as much as my comprehension skills. Whenever we desire to learn a new language it can be challenging, putting our thoughts and ideas in paper is complicated and even more when you do not do it in your mother tongue.…

    Personally, I think that Deliberative is what describes me the best. I enjoy planning my weeks out and knowing exactly what to expect from the upcoming days. I also need to have plans made beforehand, as I do not enjoy spontaneity. Consequently, I do not like when my plans are changed or canceled on short notice because it disrupts the efficiency of my day. However, I think that the Signature Theme I use most frequently would be Consistency, because I hold my morals and values very high in my priorities.…

    I was really worried that I would be put back in regular math, so I took responsibility for myself and got extra help from my teacher and managed to accomplish all A’s on the consecutive tests and end the trimester with almost an A in that class. I’m so thankful that I was taught to be responsible for myself in cheer or else I may not have gotten the same outcome. Out of everything I have been taught these years, the most important skill I picked up from being a Junior Trojan is to never give up. During this season our team did amazing, but there will sporadically be those off days when things don’t always go as intended. On those days, it’s imperative to not give up on yourself and remind everyone that even though it may not have been our best day, it’s important that we remember that we are all talented, and very fortunate to even be where we are.…

    The four study strategies that I found to be the most important and helpful to me academically were making a weekly schedule for time management, learning more about the SQ4R reading system for better annotations, learning all the different choices I have for note-taking and which one works best for me (two-column), and learning the SAVE CRIB FOTO acronym and what it means for better studying that is more personalized than just reading notes. These were the most important and helpful study strategies for me because they are also the ones that I lacked or struggled with at the beginning of this semester. I used to have little to no time management skills and would…

    One of the biggest accomplishments of my life was to go back to school and get a degree. I did not want a degree simply for the fancy piece of paper, but for a strong education that would grant me access to a world full of opportunities by gaining the key of knowledge. I have learned how to overcome many obstacles while studying at ITT Technical Institute and also learned a few great tips on how achieve goals and become stronger at talents I did not even know I had. An important suggestion that quickly turned into an important task that I learned from my time in school was the importance of revising and re-reading my own writing along with revising my peers writing as well. I have learned a lot about myself by going back and reading over…

By having these skills, I’ll be better prepared for when I am observed and given feedback and my lessons and teaching…

    I did have a honeymoon period, but after it died, I realized that I still love being a teacher and that it takes a lot more time than I ever thought it did. Even though the lesson plans took a lot of my time, but most of the time it was worth it due to the fact that many of the children were so excited about the lesson plans I made and they had fun doing them. I first lesson they were practicing comprehending nonfiction text, so I planned a lesson with slime.If they did not comprehend the directions then their slime would have not worked out. The children were very excited and we found out that the students had no problems comprehending the text when it came to something fun. I made many more that the children were excited about and were willing to put every ounce of their being…

    Now writing my final paper for this class I understand how I struggled with the different assignments in different ways. I realized how every assignment had a point and a lesson that taught me to be a better writer, better researcher, and to build my own structure. It seems apparent now that I learned a lot more than I thought from this class. I now hope I can use these new skills in my other classes and within my future research papers. I hope that I will not struggle as I did with every beginning of each assignment but remember the skills I have acquired an apply them as…

    I am a person who likes to follow strict details for assignments and know exactly what I need to write about. In that aspect, it was a disadvantage for me. This was an advantage for me because it made me overcome needing those exact directions on what topic to write about and what to include when writing about the topic. This helped me as a student and as a writer because it opened my mind to all the different variety of topics there were within a broader theme. If I had to take this course over again, there are very few things that I would change.…
