One effective method of memorization is "translating."
First, translate verbal information (ideas expressed in words) into visual information (ideas expressed in pictures).
Second, translate the information back into words by explaining the picture to someone else.

That means the brain stores information in both visual and verbal form.

BECOMING AN
ACTIVE LEARNER: TRANSLATING
Communicate purposefully
Have a clear goal for your communication.

Communicate honestly
Express unpopular thoughts and upsets.

Communicate Responsibly
Be accountable by using “I Messages.”

THREE STRATEGIES
THAT PROMOTE LEVELING
Leveling
I know you've got a lot of work to do tonight. Could we spend just ten minutes cleaning up this mess together?
Before I can help you with your paper, I need to finish studying for a test. How about if you help me review tonight and I'll work with you on your paper tomorrow afternoon?

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
Blaming
You never do anything to help our study team. You’re just lazy!
This room is a mess! When do you plan to start doing your share of work around here?
My sociology instructor gives unfair tests! He thinks he can ask questions about anything that we were supposed to read for homework.

INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Identify the way of relating that is depicted in each of the following statements. Be ready to explain your answer.

NOTE: Some statements may have more than one correct answer...

CHOICES OF SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS
EMPLOYING INTERDEPENDENCE

Placating
Its okay if you don’t help with our project in sociology. I’ll just do the work myself.
Please don’t be upset with me. I'll drive your friends to the airport and study for my math test later.
I'm sorry. I should have cleaned up the mess from our party last night. I’ll do it right now.

INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
Which of the following listening skills do you think will be the most challenging for you?
STEP 1 Listen to understand

STEP 2 Clear your mind and remain silent

STEP 3 Ask the person to expand or clarify

STEP 4 Reflect the other person's thoughts
and feelings

ACTIVE LISTENING
I can’t achieve my goals by myself.

I have to help other people get their goals before I can pursue my own goals.

By working hard, I can get some of what I want all by myself.

I know I can get some of what I want by working alone, but I’ll accomplish more and have more fun if I give and receive help.

FOUR WAYS OF RELATING

Codependence:


Independence:

Here’s a visual way to remember the three qualities of leveling:




A porpoise (purposeful)
is swimming to Abraham Lincoln (honest)
because it’s responsible for returning his wallet

EXAMPLE OF TRANSLATION

REVIEW: DEVELOPING SELF-DISCIPLINE

Do I love myself enough to keep going?

What are my goals and dreams?

What question can
you ask yourself to
enhance persistence?

What question can
you ask yourself to
strengthen focus?

You are such a jerk! You never show respect for anyone. Why in the world would you be yelling and slamming stuff around at three o'clock in the morning?! Man, you make me sick!

Professor Hartley, I had a couple of questions about my failing grade on the test, and I'd like to make an appointment to discuss those with you. Would tomorrow morning during your office hours be a good time? Say 9:30?

APPLYING THE CONCEPT
Don’t worry about waking me up last night. I know you enjoy partying with your friends. I’ll just go to work sleepy. If I get fired, I can probably find another job.

I was really upset when you and your friends came in at three o’clock last night, laughing and yelling. I have to leave for work at 6 a.m. and I need my sleep. Would you agree to never do that again?

After reading each statement below, identify whether it is placating, blaming or leveling.

APPLYING THE CONCEPT
QUICK REVIEW
1. Kyle helps Cherie with her writing assignments and she tutors him in math.

2. Candace always lets Kim copy her homework because she doesn't want Kim to get mad at her.

3. Joe refuses to go to the tutoring center: "If I can't learn this by myself, then I shouldn't be in college."
