The Reading Toolkit
More than One Way to Be
called “learning”
for more understanding
we’re yearning,
mix two worlds together
“schools” and “brain
weather,”
practice educational
psychology for your
earning.
Alas for learners with a surface approach.

They need some wise words from a good teaching

coach.

If their learning was deeper

Their ideas would be keepers.

Not skimming across like a cockroach.
Interpretivism
Reality is internal
Relative to a frame of reference
Constructed by the learner:
Is this a spider I see before me?
(think
about it)
nagging
seems to be a form of
negative reinforcement,

in that a behavior
will be engaged in
simply to stop
that incessant
god damn
nagging!
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION
IS
DOING THINGS
JUST FOR THE PLEASURE
OF DOING THEM
(LIKE THIS WORD LIST!)
I've found that I absolutely need
to consolidate
the memory of a person's
immediately
after meeting them,
by repeating
their name
and consciously
associating the
mental image of them
with it, if I am going to actually
remember their name.
Recite this aloud
and
rehearse it three
times:
"Recitation is the
best way
to transfer
Cognitive Learning
Theory:
Vygotsky thought thought was
complex
his ideas the comrades did vex,
but he preached social order
peer learning with no border,
steeped in environment up to
our necks!
Haiku
Thoughts inside themselves
Just thinking about thinking.

Metacognition
Probably the biggest issue with
students in introductory biology
is that they are unable to monitor
their comprehension of the
material they're reading; they will
do the readings, feel they've done
what they need to, and yet not
actually understand any of the
concepts presented.
When we challenge
students' pre-
conceived notions, we
place them in a state
of

disequilibriu
m
where they are no longer sure what
to think, until they manage to
gather enough information and
form a new representation and
equilibrium.
I wonder
what

motivation
al theory
would suggest
about my drive to
finish this assignment?
I like teaching.
The Psych of Learning Wrap-Up Rap
Learning is change
roam the intelligence range
Rome wasn't built in a day,
It takes days and days of scaffolding expert practitioners
ways and ways of learning apprenticing apprentices
intelligence reach, teach, reach out
earning, yearning weave a web of learning
for motivation, innovation the read/write web 2.0
change the nation ongoing learning going on
incubation, education heuristic pluralistic, synergistic,
novel practice watch the JPF in the ZPD
practice makes perfect and the magic number seven of our
community of practice memory
practice what you teach yearn to learn, in the end to earn
but also discern
watch the learning world turn,
become unbalanced by the strange,
then change
