• Polya’s 4 part Problem Solving Steps are applicable not only to math but also to understanding all sorts of problems from your assignments to the ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS analogy… You need to understand that Rock breaks scissors, Scissors cut paper, Paper covers rock. Then think about the person you are competing with – what might s/he play first? You play the item to beat the one you think will be thrown, evaluate, etc.

10. 10. ORGANIZE How do you organize yourself as a student?WORKLOAD T • Courses O • Personal O • Work L TIME S • Term • Week • DayINDIVIDUAL COURSES • Reading • Writing • Assignments
12. 12. PRIORITIZE What do you have to do? URGENT (Due Soon) NOT URGENT (Due in the Future) What is urgent? IMPORTANT What’s most important to you? WAYS TO PRIORITIZE NOT • Long-term vs. Short-term IMPORTANT • Important vs. Un-important • Proactive vs. Reactive Quadrant I: Quadrant II: Quadrant III: Quadrant IV: Crises, Pressing Prevention, Interruptions, Some Trivia, Busy Work, Problems, Reflection, Planning, Phone Calls, Some Some Deadline-driven Recreation, Stress E-mail, Some E-mail, Some PhoneTOOLS FOR PRIORITIZING projects Management, Recognizing New Opportunities Reports, Some Meetings, Pressing Matters Calls, Escapist Activities (IM, TV, DVD, etc.) • Colored markers • Tacks Adapted from Stephen Covey’s • Emoticons First Things First
13. 13. PRIORITIZE URGENT NOT URGENT (Due Soon) (Due in the Future) Org Behavior - Residency this weekend – finish editing Critical Thinking - Start IMPORTANT paper research for final debate project due in May – use RPC Work – get fiscal report done to help breakdown steps by next Monday Schedule annual physical for Load pictures from Saturday’s NOT me and kids party to Facebook.

14. 14. RECOGNIZEDo you know your wants and needs?Can you be more effective and efficient with your time management? Can you recognize and eliminate “time wasters”? Eat that Frog By Brian Tracy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0W7GB5Fh2XM
15. 15. MINIMIZE/MAXIMIZEMake a PLAN for how to: • MINIMIZE - Remove the Time Wasters & Limit Distractions • Distractions list • Identify your support network – who can help? • MAXIMIZE - Focus on must haves & motivators • Focus on priorities • Use a rewards system • Use a timer • Focus on positive thinking
17. 17. RE-ORGANIZE
18. 18. The following slides depict examples ofhow we help students with Reading
19. 19. 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
20. 20. 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?
21. 21. 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?
22. 22. 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?”
23. 23. Active Reading Engage with the textTake Notes Highlight Use a Pacer Important Information
25. 25. 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
27. 27. The following slides depict examples ofhow we help students with Understanding Assignments
28. 28. Problem Solving Steps• Understand the problem.• Make a plan.• Carry out the plan.• Reflect - How can the plan be improved? Source: George Pólya (1945) How to Solve It
29. 29. Problem Solving Steps• Understand the problem. See the big picture first• Make a plan. Understand the details that make up the big picture and how you intend to convey your understanding• Carry out the plan. Communicate your understanding• Reflect - How can the plan be improved? ASK YOURSELF - “What will make me a better learner in the future?” Source: George Pólya (1945) How to Solve It
30. 30. Problem Solving Steps – Applied to Assignments• Understand the problem. • Know what you are being asked to do – “rules” • Figure out what you need to learn/do – “content”• Make a plan. • Create a timeline • Gather the materials you need to read and/or research • Create action steps/appropriate studying strategies • Brainstorming • Idea lists • Mindmaps • Outlining
31. 31. How do I make an“assignment timeline” ? • Identify the individual steps you will need to take to complete the assignment. Use the University of Minnesota’s Assignment Calculator https://bitly.com/assignmentcalculator •Then plug them into a calendar - backwards plan from the due date Use the NEC Academic Support Terms at a Glance Calendar https://bitly.com/TermCalendars

33. 33. “So, How Do I Actually Do This With My Classes?” Example– Independent Study • Western Civilization
34. 34. Independent Study Assignment ExampleWestern Civilization I is designed to introduce the student to theemergence of the first civilizations and the trajectory of theirdevelopment into Western society. We will examine thecontributions of Greece and Rome and how they expanded theirempires; how ideas are conceived, put into practice, and have socialconsequences; how and why empires collapsed; how people andsocieties existed during the Middle Ages; how numerous culturesdeveloped values and coexisted/clashed with others; and how abroken Europe, after several starts, reinvigorated itself with theRenaissance, and split again in the Reformation. Throughout theperiod of study, culture, and the role of ideas, will be emphasized asa means of analyzing and connecting the people and events thatmake up the trajectory of history. Understanding the “Problem” Break the purpose of the course down into manageable concepts/key words.
