Having choices allows children to feel that they have control or ownership over their own learning. This, in turn, helps them develop a sense of responsibility and self-motivation.Curriculum 2.Activity 3.2: Defining AggressionAggression is used as an example of a typical construct in psychology, permeated with subtle meanings and not-so-subtle disagreements that make it difficult to reach a consensual definition.Curriculum 3.Research in Brain Function and LearningIt is important for teachers and parents to understand that maturation of the brain influences learning readiness. For teachers, this is especially important when designing lessons and selecting which strategies to use.Curriculum 4.Activity 2.4: Locating Sound SourcesJust as we perceive depth visually as a result of slight differences in the images on each of our two retinas, we perceive stereophonic sound as a result of receiving slightly different sound messages in our two cochleas.Curriculum 5.Activity 1.2: Understanding Abnormal Behavior: Wearing the Other ShoeStudents tend to form stereotypes about mental illness and distance themselves rather than confront and understand this complex, abstract set of behaviors. One way to sensitize students to abnormal behavior is to have them view it from the perspective of the person who is mentally ill.Curriculum 6.Activity 3.1: Finding Meaning in the MethodWhile the specific details of the methodology vary, the logic of experimentation is essentially the same.Curriculum 7.Activity 2.1: Blind Spot in VisionThat area at the back of the eye where the nerve fibers from all parts of the retina collect to form the optic nerve is called the optic disc or, more commonly, the "blind spot."Curriculum 8.Activity 5.1: Retroactive and Proactive InhibitionRetroactive inhibition is difficulties with the retention of previously learned material caused by the interference of more recently learned material. Proactive inhibition is difficulties in learning and retention caused by the interference of previously learned material.Curriculum 9.Practice for Knowledge Acquisition (Not Drill and Kill)Researchers who have investigated expert and novice performance have uncovered important distinctions between deliberate practice and other activities, such as work, play and rote repetition.Curriculum 10.Activity 4.4: A Neat Little Demonstration of the Benefits of Random Assignment of Subjects in an ExperimentThe major advantage of randomly assigning people to conditions in an experiment is that any variables that might affect the outcome of the experiment that are not controlled will be randomly divided between the conditions of the experiment.Curriculum Previous 1 2 3 ...
