The most astonishing aspect about these strategies is how they do not require extensive amounts of time to see results; using Schmoker's approach, they are both immediate and effective. No additional sources cited.

Dubbed as the 'joystick generation,' contemporary high school and college students have come to academically expand from using video games as a learning tool. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

    3 pages in length. Learning theories are not merely a collection of arbitrary approaches for acquiring knowledge but rather are well-focused methods for reaching students. People cannot be lumped together as being a single entity when it comes to learning processes; borrowing from such renown scholars as Dewey, Wertheimer and Bruner, Bottge (2001) points out how 'the notion that problems must be engaging for students' (p. 102) is not a new concept. In order to penetrate the limitations inherent to low achieving students where mathematical comprehension is concerned, Bottge (2001) expounds upon the need to incorporate student autonomy and quality of life into the fundamental approach to learning.

  • Adolescents And ADHD

    6 pages in length. Adjusting one's life to the inherent struggles of ADHD is not specific to the individual who suffers from the learning disability; rather, the need to develop coping mechanisms branches out to virtually every person with whom the individual comes in contact, not the least of which includes parents, siblings, non-familial adults and peers. This is particular pertinent with adolescent ADHD, in that during this period of life the young adult is compelled to deal with psychological, physiological and hormonal changes that make the focus-zapping disability an even greater challenge to endure. The extent to which issues such as scholastic difficulty and low self-esteem are a constant presence in the life of an ADHD adolescent are both grand and far-reaching; that specially modified approaches to learning must be approached in order to reach the ADHD adolescent speaks to the shattering of old-school mentality claiming these young adults simply cannot be reached.

  • Online Education: Balancing School With Other Life Responsibilities

    3 pages in length. Everything takes priority at one time or another; the most important thing to remember is that only one thing can take priority at a time. Balance is the key to successfully juggling an online education with work and/or family demands, however, balance requires sacrifice and compromise whereby something at sometime is going to have to be delegated a secondary preference. The greatest conflict people find when they attempt an online degree is the perceived notion of "your time is your own" from employers, friends and family alike. While the fundamental attraction of online education is the ability to achieve this goal at home, that is the only difference between it and a brick-and-mortar schedule. That online learning removes the logistic component does not mean it lacks structure of time and commitment, a realization that spawns frustration when trying to balance with work and/or family demands.
