  • Student vs Learner

         Students Learners Relationship with educators Students are employees, required to obediently follow instructions. Learners are citizens with a vested interest in the learning society. Relationship with other “Students” Students are competitors Learners are collaborators Motivation Obligation: Students are culturally obliged to work for the teacher & for compensation (below) Responsibility: Learners are motivated by an understood and realized “value” in their work, especially when it is valuable to others. Compensation Institution defined grades and gateways to college (another institution) and a good job (another institution) A sense of ongoing accomplishment that is not delivered but earned, and not symbolic but tangible and valuable — an investment. Mode of Operation Compliant, group-disciplined, objective-oriented, and trainable Persevering, self-disciplined, group- and goal-oriented, resourceful, and learning in order to achieve rather than achieving learning. Why? Compelled

  • Succeeding in Chem This Year

    “Can I really learn chemistry?” The answer: With patience and time, anybody can learn chemistry. In my years of teaching chemistry, I’ve never found anybody who, with a little bit of hard work and study, wasn’t able to understand the basics. Of course, there are some things you can do to make this task easier on yourself:   ·         Learn the vocabulary! Chemistry is full of confusing, specialized terms. It doesn’t matter how well you’ve memorized the material—if you don’t understand what the words mean, you won’t understand chemistry. ·         Learn processes, not facts! A lot of people attempt to learn chemistry by memorizing the periodic table, the names and formulas of every chemical compound, and all the equations from the chemistry book. Some of these people learn chemistry, some of them don’t, and some of them have heart attacks from all of that memorization. Chemistry becomes much easier if you learn how to solve problems, rather than memorizing the answers to every potential problem. In this course, we’ll be discussing methods you can use to solve problems, rather than committing the atomic masses of the lanthanides to memory. ·         Slow and steady wins the race!   Like most subjects, chemistry is much easier to understand if you take it in small, easily digested chunks. Remember, it took over 2,000 years to develop modern chemistry—you probably won’t become a pro after a 32-hour study session. ·         Use common sense! When you solve problems in chemistry, look at the answers to make sure they’re right. For example, if you’ve found that you’re 45 meters tall after doing a unit conversion, it’s fairly certain you’ve made a mistake (unless you’re the Jolly Green Giant). ·         Enjoy the scenery! Though there are some really boring aspects to chemistry, there are also a lot of really neat things to learn. Think of chemistry as being like a long car trip—sometimes you have to endure the traffic in New Jersey before you can enjoy New York&helli
