Transcript of CORE Learning System

Using the CORE Learning System Four general strategies that good learners use
C: collect
O: organize
R: rehearse
E: evaluate What is CORE? We are constantly collecting information through the use of our five senses
Some of this material sticks around for years, while other material easily passes through our memory
In college, students need to be be more deliberate and conscious of what information they are collection and deliberate about retaining this knowledge COLLECT To make sense of information, it needs to be organized in an appropriate way
Knowledge that is collected and not organized in our minds will be easy to forget Organize Rehearsing helps you remember collected, organized information for future use
Information that is rehearsed will be much easier to remember for your tests, in your career, and throughout your life Rehearse Evaluation is the scariest part of learning for some people
View evaluation as useful-it gives you feedback on how well you learned the material
You can evaluate yourself-don't wait for your professors evaluation to assess how well you learned Evaluate The components of the CORE system are not always used in the same order. As we go through the meanings of each one, do not think of them as step-by-step procedures, but rather all equal parts in a recipe. Learning isn't always tidy... The first aspect of learning is collecting information
Knowing what information is relevant will ensure you organize, rehearse, and evaluate the information you are required to learn for your class Successful Collection Use Your Textbook Most text will use headlines and bold words
Those headlines give you clues about what main ideas are in the text-use this information to help you identify what is important
Use the Table of Contents to help you begin an outline of the material Take responsibility for your learning
Playing the "victim" will not help you succeed
If you are collecting irrelevant information, do not blame your instructor-find the relevant information. Blaming and victim-role will only waste time Become a Creator All information we collect is organized in some way in our brains
For instance, you may organize information you find while shopping in a financial "folder" so next time you are shopping, you know how much you should pay for a particular item. You may organize language and dialect in a "social" folder in your brain so you know how to respond and greet people in various settings (talking with authorities vs. talking with friends) Organizing Your Information How to Organize Class Information Naturally, your brain will organize all material learned from the same class together
You should deliberately organize this material in a more specific way in order to retain the information
Consider using the same color for a class (green notebook, green pen, etc.) Graphic Organizers will help you organize information in a way that makes sense
Graphic organizers will help you visualize the material, identify relevant information, and connect the information together Using Graphic Organizers Rehearsing material is when you are "studying" or "reviewing your notes"
Re-writing notes is a great way to rehearse
Study groups can also help you rehearse
Creating and using mnemonic devices How to Rehearse When you take notes in class, you are surrounded by distractions-students, room climate, visual aids, instructor's speech, etc.
By re-writing your notes after class, you eliminate a lot of distractions while you rehearse the information you collected
Re-writing notes can help you identify what information is most important Re-Writing Notes Studying with classmates can have several advantages
helps you verify the information you are studying is relevant
helps you evaluate yourself
creates a support system
Choose your study partners wisely so you don't create bigger distractions
watch for classmates who seem very attentive in class
watch for people who are confident in their studies and ask questions to clarify Using Study Groups Self testing before a formal test can help you determine your readiness
You can identify areas you need additional help, and also whether or not you are prepared for all areas of a test (short answer, multiple choice, essay, true/false, etc) Evaluating Yourself Before Your Professor Does Create "flash cards" for vocabulary
Use study guides and resources in your textbook (answer questions in your text and/or workbooks)
Work with your study group to create "mock test" and take each other's tests
Change course objectives to questions and answer those questions Self-Evaluation Methods www.tinyurl.com/mcleanorganizer Creating and Using Mnemonic Devices Mnemonic devices can help your recall information on tests
Four Types
Single Use or First Letter Coding: Used for a series of items, or a group of items (ROY G BIV)
Keyword: word pairs (States and their capitols) or abstract vocabulary (pairing two words together)
Chain: remembering a specific order (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally)
Method of Loci: large amounts of unrelated information, such as a list of people's names or items needed; great for visual learners (visualize all the information in a familiar place)
