How Do You Learn Best (Week 1: Learning Style / L-R Brain / Typing Test)

Today you will learn about HOW YOU LEARN BEST! Please follow the directions below to complete a series of survey's that will give you some insight on your Learning Styles, your Left/Right Brain Dominance, and a Typing Test. You may choose to watch the videos associated with each survey (with headphones only), or just complete the surveys themselves. Please fill out the form in class.  Make sure you talk to your parents about what you are doing in our class! Make sure to complete both for credit.

Use the link below to open a copy of the Self-Assessment Survey Results Worksheet.  Make sure to click File and Make A Copy.  Rename the sheet "(Last Name) P (?) CSA Personal Inventory Survey Results Worksheet", and SHARE it with Mr. S (hscribner@ccs.us) for credit right away.  This worksheet should also be stored in your CEW Folder on your Google Drive.


Below are the assessments you should complete, and enter the results on your Google Document. Make sure to SHARE the document for credit!

1. LEARNING STYLES: Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.
Please watch the Video (Click Here) and take the Inventory below.  Record you answers on the form and then enter them in the ONLINE SURVEY for credit.


2. LEFT/RIGHT BRAIN DOMINANCE: According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Additionally, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other. For example, a person who is "left-brained" is often said to be more logical, analytical, and objective. Watch the video below and take the survey. Record your answers on the paper and then enter them on the ONLINE SURVEY for credit  Watch the Video Here (Click) or  Explanation Video (Click Here)

Please take the following surveys that will help you to identify your learning style and whether you are left or right brain dominant:


3. TYPING TEST: When you are finished take the typing test (1 minute, any topic you like, and record your Words Per Minute):


You can use typing.com to help you improve your typing skills anytime you are finished with work in this class.  If you insist on playing the typing games, make sure you are using the HOME KEYS to start from, and actually typing to play the games.

Tomorrow, We Will Be Taking An Executive Functions Survey! 

OBJECTIVE & STUDENT OUTCOMES
  Students will be able to identify their individual Learning Style, Left or Right Brain Dominance, Executive Functions, and be tested on their basic typing skills.  Students will complete the Self-Assessments for each activity and record scores on the EXIT TICKET.  Students will also transfer those scores to the online Google Form to add them to the school spreadsheet for credit.  When complete, students will use spare time to improve individual typing skills.

STUDENTS MUST READ ALL DIRECTIONS ON THIS WEBSITE PRIOR TO STARTING ANY ASSIGNED TASKS.  PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AS GIVEN FOR FULL CREDIT!

Students will enter the class quietly and quickly.  Students will be given specific directions and examples of why the information may be valuable to know about Learning Styles, L/R Brain Dominance, Executive Functions, and Typing Speed.  Students will complete all assessments and be able to accurately record scores.  Students will use time wisely and spend any additional time in class, or at home, finishing projects currently due.

Integrity (13 Characteristics)

13 Characteristics of People Who Have Integrity

1. They Value Other People's Time: They value their own time so they also value the time of other people. They know you have plenty of other places you need to be and won’t hold you up. If you spend time with them, it is likely they will thank you for that as well.

2. They Give Credit Where It Is Due: They do not take credit for things they did not do. They will always credit those who deserve it. If you help this person with a project he or she will likely mention your name so you can take credit for your work.

3. They Are Authentic: They are their truest forms. You won’t catch them in a lie or being fake.

4. They Are Always Honest: They are honest people that feel no need to lie as it is important for them to get to where they need to get in life honestly.

5. They Never Take Advantage Of Others: They are not the kind of people who will take advantage of someone else. They love to build people up and help them get where they need to be. Taking too much from someone else will never be an issue with someone who has a lot of integrity.

6. The Do Not Argue Over Disagreements: They will talk through things in a civil manner or not talk at all. You cannot and will not force this person into arguing over something completely ridiculous. I find this to be a very respectable trait.

7. They Give Most People The Benefit Of The Doubt: They try to see the good in everyone. I think this is because they feel like maybe there are more people in this world that also have integrity. That being said, if you take advantage of them too much they will get rid of you.

8. They Know When Something Is Bothering Someone: They have a great intuition that lets them know when something is going on. If someone is down in the dumps they will notice. Chances are they will actually do what they can to cheer you up.

9. They Believe In Others: They accept your word as truth until it is dis-proven. That being said, they do not take lying well. And once you lie to them, it is unlikely that they will ever take your word again.

10. They Apologize First: If they have done something wrong they will come to you and apologize. This is just how they are. They own up to their mistake and try to make things right.

11. They Are Humble: They do not quite know their own worth. While they are very important and do so much good they don’t quite see it. You should remind them of it.

12. They Do Good When They Can: They are always helping other people. They love to know that they have improved someone’s life. It gives their lives meaning.

13. They Are Always Kind To Those Who Need It: Giving kindness can go a long way. When someone looks like they need a little pick me up these people deliver. They can brighten up almost anyone’s day.

If you are someone who has true integrity, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all that you do. You really do actually make a difference in society, please keep up the good work. If you feel no one else is proud of you, know that I am.
