Our textbook begins by highlighting the Reflective Learning Method, one technique behind the psychology of studying. This technique can help you read and learn the material in textbooks more effectively. It also helps you when taking tests! We all learn differently, though. It is very important to know how you learn best. If you use strategies that work best with your learning style, you will decrease the time you spend and increase the results! Assignment Directions: 1. Take the learning style self-assessment ( https://www.webtools.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/) The direct link is https://www.webtools.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/ 2. Review the results of your assessment using the explanation below.
3.In a Word Document, write at least 300 words in APA format (7th edition) describing the following: a. Results of the assessment b. How you learn best currently (before you knew the type of learner you were)
c. How you will modify your study techniques to fit your learning style, now that you know it.
Week 1 Assignment Example Week 1 Assignment Example – Alternative Formats What do the results mean? Barbara Soloman, Coordinator of Advising, First Year College, North Carolina State University explains:
Active Learners: tend to retain and understand information best by doing something active with it like discussing or explaining it to others. They enjoy group work.
Reflective Learners: prefer to think about it quietly first. They prefer to work alone.
Sensing Learners: tend to like learning facts. They are patient with details and good at memorizing things. They are practical and careful.
Intuitive Learners: prefer discovering possibilities and relationships. They are good at grasping new concepts and are comfortable with abstractions and mathematical formulations. They are innovative and creative.
Visual Learners: remember best what they see–pictures, diagrams, flowcharts, timelines, films, and demonstrations.
Verbal Learners: get more out of words–written and spoken explanations. Everyone learns more when information is presented both visually and verbally.
Sequential Learners: tend to gain understanding in linear steps, with each step following logically from the previous one. They follow logical steps when finding solutions.
Global Learners: Global learners tend to learn in large jumps, absorbing material almost randomly without seeing connections, and then suddenly “getting it.” They may be able to solve complex problems quickly or put things together in novel ways once they have grasped the big picture, but they may have difficulty explaining how they did it.
Tips for your Assignment:
Always use the 7th edition of APA for your references and in-text citations (Wikipedia is not a reliable source and cannot be used in this class).
The assignment must be written in 7th edition APA format in a Microsoft Word document with header page numbers at top right side of each page, Title page, no more than 12 pt font, double spaced and indented paragraphs, 7th edition APA citations inside and at the end of every paragraph to support what is shared throughout, and a complete 7th edition APA reference page, word count posted (there is an example below).
Please be sure to back up your answers with facts from the source, and put together complete and well thought out responses.
Also make sure that you support and reinforce your answers and replies with factual information from the source. Make sure to do a spelling and grammar check before submitting. Double check that you meet the word requirement (title page information, section headings, and references do not get included in a word count).
