  • When you organize and schedule your time you will be able to do all of the things in a day that you would like to. Remember it is all up to you how to best organize your time and to stick to your schedule.
  • A drum, it is a percussion instrument, it makes music, by hitting the top with a drumstick it makes a sound, when you hit it with a specific rhythm it will create music, depending on the skill and experience of the player the music might be good or bad or anywhere in between.
  • Breaking Poor Reading HabitsIf you're like most people, then you probably have one or more reading habits that slow you down. Becoming a better reader means overcoming these bad habits, so that you can clear the way for new, effective ways of reading. Below, we cover some of the most common bad reading habits, and discuss what you can do to overcome them.Sub-VocalizationSub-vocalization is the habit of pronouncing each word in your head as you read it. Most people do this to some extent or another. When you sub-vocalize, you "hear" the word being spoken in your mind. This takes much more time than is necessary, because you can understand a word more quickly than you can say it.To turn off the voice in your head, you have to first acknowledge that it's there (how did you read the first part of this article?), and then you have to practice "not speaking." When you sit down to read, tell yourself that you will not sub-vocalize. You need to practice this until this bad habit is erased. Reading blocks of words also helps, as it's harder to vocalize a block of words. (See below for more on this.)Eliminating sub-vocalization alone can increase your reading speed by an astounding amount. Otherwise, you're limited to reading at the same pace as talking, which is about 250-350 words per minute. The only way to break through this barrier is to stop saying the words in your head as you read. Reading Word-by-WordNot only is it slow to read word-by-word, but when you concentrate on separate words, you often miss the overall concept of what's being said. People who read each word as a distinct unit can understand less than those who read faster by "chunking" words together in blocks. (Think about how your eyes are moving as you read this article. Are you actually reading each word, or are you reading blocks of two, or three, or five words?)Practice expanding the number of words that you read at a time. You may also find that you can increase the number of words you read in a single fixation by holding the text a little further from your eyes. The more words you can read in each block, the faster you'll read! Inefficient Eye MotionSlow readers tend to focus on each word, and work their way across each line. The eye can actually span about 1.5 inches at a time, which, for an average page, encompasses four or five words. Related to this is the fact that most readers don't use their peripheral vision to see words at the ends of each line.To overcome this, "soften" your gaze when you read – by relaxing your face and expanding your gaze, you'll begin to see blocks of words instead of seeing each word as distinct unit. As you get good at this, your eyes will skip faster and faster across the page. When you get close to the end of the line, let your peripheral vision take over to see the last set of words. This way you can quickly scan across and down to the next line.RegressionRegression is the unnecessary re-reading of material. Sometimes people get into the habit of skipping back to words they have just read, while, other times, they may jump back a few sentences, just to make sure that they read something right. When you regress like this, you lose the flow and structure of the text, and your overall understanding of the subject can decrease.Be very conscious of regression, and don't allow yourself to re-read material unless you absolutely have to.To reduce the number of times your eyes skip back, run a pointer along the line as you read. This could be a finger, or a pen or pencil. Your eyes will follow the tip of your pointer, helping you avoid skipping back. The speed at which you read using this method will largely depend on the speed at which you move the pointer.Poor ConcentrationIf you've tried to read while the TV is on, you'll know how hard it is to concentrate on one word, let alone on many sentences strung together. Reading has to be done in an environment where external distractions are kept to a minimum.To improve your concentration as you read, stop multitasking while reading, and remove any distractions. This is particularly important, because when you use the techniques of chunking blocks of words together and ceasing to sub-vocalize, you may find that you read several pages before you realize you haven't understood something properly. Pay attention to "internal distractions" as well. If you're rehashing a heated discussion, or if you're wondering what to make for dinner, this will also limit your ability to process information.Sub-vocalization actually forces your brain to attend to what you're reading, and that's why people often say that they can read and watch TV at the same time. To become an efficient reader, you need to avoid this.Approaching Reading Linearly We're taught to read across and down, taking in every word, sentence, paragraph and page in sequence. When you do this, though, you pay the same attention to supplementary material as you do to core information. (Often, much more information is presented than you actually need to know.)Overcome this by scanning the page for headings, and by looking for bullet points and things in bold. There is no rule saying that you have to read a document in the order that the author intended, so scan it quickly, and decide what is necessary and what isn't. Skim over the fluff, and only pay attention to the key material.As you read, look for the little extras that authors add to make their writing interesting and engaging. If you get the point, there's no need to read the example or anecdote. Similarly, decide what you need to re-read as well. It's far better to read one critical paragraph twice than it is to read another eight paragraphs elaborating on that same concept.

  • Output InputWhat you create from Information to be learnedwhat you learned A+ Evaluation Understanding Judging what you learned Student Comprehending Learning what you learned Analysis Using what you learned
  • evaluate critique EVALUATION – JUDGE – Do you have to appraise, assess or critiqueBloom’s Taxonomy on a basis of specific standards and criteria? synthesize / SYNTHESIS – COMBINE – Do you need to take your own ideas and integrate argue compare them with course concepts into a product, plan or proposal? Can you identify what is relevant from what irrelevant? contrast analyze ANALYSIS – CONNECT – Do you need to compare/contrast, distinguish, classify and relate any assumptions, hypotheses, evidence or structure of a statement or question? apply react APPLICATION - USE – Do you have to select, transfer or use data and principles to complete a problem or task? summarize describe interpret discuss define COMPREHENSION – UNDERSTAND - Do you have to translate your understanding or interpretation of information? KNOWLEDGE – REGURGITATE -- Do you have to recall or recognizes information? Do you have to present the ideas and principles that you learned in a basic summary?
  • Bloom and a Real Life Example• Knowledge – What is it?• Comprehension – What else is it like?• Application – What does it do?• Analysis – How does it work?• Synthesis – What happens when you…?• Evaluation – How was the quality?
  • Comprehension Tips CREATE INTEREST • Set Goals: • “What is my purpose for doing this reading?” • “What do I want to learn?”Think aboutat lesson objectives • Look how to best take notes • Learn new vocabulary • Preview the reading • Review introductory information USE WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW • Activate prior knowledge (schema): “What do I know about the topic?”
  • Active Reading Engage with the textTake Notes Highlight Use a Pacer Important Information
  • SQ3R Textbook Study System 5 step method that was designed to help people become more active in their reading and retain information more easily.Survey Read intro, summary; skim headings, boldface, italicized words, charts, etc.Question Identify your purpose for reading – assignment, paper, discussion, etc.Read Break into sections, take notes as you read, make links back to your purposeRecite Rewrite key information in your own wordsReview Scan material; talk about it with classmate if possible; identify themes and relationships between concepts Research shows students who learn this system and use it conscientiously - read 22% faster - comprehend 10% more - retain 80% of material.
  • Survey Objective: To get a solid overview of what need to learn. What it does… Prepares your mental processing system. Why do it?• Be better able to concentrate with a frame of reference.• Be better able to identify & locate important information. Endstate…Better understanding/comprehension/retention of material
  • Efficient Reading Break poor reading habitsDon’t sub-vocalize (pronounce) each word in your headChunk words into concepts instead of reading word-by-wordSoften your eyes and force yourself to scan fasterDon’t re-read unnecessarily, use a pacer/pointerAvoid distractions to improve your concentrationRead from top to bottom as well as left to right Practice Your Skill - http://www.readingsoft.com/ Adapted from http://www.mindtools.com/speedrd

  • Independent Study Assignment ExampleEXTREMELY IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY!!!Below are specific guidelines for essay requirements, feedback, due dates, penalties, and Incompletes.Essay requirements:Students will be graded on their written assignments. The papers must be typed using Times New Roman, 12 font, double-spaced, normalmargins (usually 1” on top and bottom; 1.25” on right and left), no pictures, no lengthy quotes or extra spaces between paragraphs, withcitations and bibliography. Papers must be first submitted in electronic form to turnitin.com, and then emailed as an attachment to theInstructor. Additionally, it is very strongly recommended that students have Microsoft Word 2007, or 2010. Due dates and penalties for latesubmissions are in effect (read below), and assignments only count as “turned in” when the Instructor receives the emailed attachment.Feedback:I have a strong preference for giving verbal feedback – that way I can explain things fully and answer any of your questions that might arise.Ideally, we should meet in person, but if you cannot make it in, then a phone call should be arranged. If neither are possible, then you canrequest some written comments. Discussing the first essay is in some ways the most important because we can work to eliminate simplemistakes and make sure that the content addresses the essay topic.Due dates:The first essay is due at approximately the midpoint of the Term. The second essay is due at approximately the three-quarter point, and thefinal essay is due by the end of the Term (the exact dates will be provided by the Instructor).Penalties:Assignments are late when the Instructor receives them via email after the due dates given out at the beginning of the Term. The penalty forturning in late assignments is:1-7 days late – 5-point reduction8-14 days late – 15-point reduction15-21 days late – 30-point reductionPapers will not be accepted more than 21 days late and will receive 0 points. No extensions will be granted for work due by the end of theTerm. Exceptions to this policy will only be made for extreme circumstances, such as severe illness (i.e. hospitalization), death in the family,or some other catastrophic event. In such a case, the student must inform the Instructor in a timely manner, and keep the Instructor postedof the continuing circumstances as they pertain to the course.

  • Independent Study Assignment ExampleFor the last paper, choose one of the following topics:A) The Renaissance transformed Europe, but did so very differently in Northern Europe than in the region of its origin – the Italian peninsula. Again using specific examples, discuss the differences between the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance. For this paper, you may choose to do a fictional narrative – such as placing yourself as a character in the time period, or writing a story from the third-person perspective.B) Using examples from Greece, Rome, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Reformation, discuss how art influenced any of the dominant ideas connected to that period, and make every effort to connect a central theme to each. Make a Plan Decide which of the questions you are going to answer.
