My Background & First Experience

Transcript: I have a memory of it being my birthday in 5th grade and I passed out cupcakes to all my classmates. I gave one kid his cupcake and I got icing on my finger, so naturally, I licked it off. Then I was about to pick up the next cupcake for my friend Destiny and I remember her face being disgusted as she said, “I’ll get my own cupcake, thanks.” I learned how to appropriately and respectfully handle food. 5:30 AM - Wake up to the sound of bachata music 6:15 AM to 7:30 AM - Get ready for work and wish my family a good day 8:00AM - Work as an underwriting trainer (in other words...a multitasking ninja and miracle worker) 6:00 PM Arrive Home Help with homework Make dinner 8:00 PM - Pick up the kids from football and/or taekwondo class 8:00 to 9:45 PM Time varies depending on the schedule The boys shower (while I clean up) and get tucked in for bed An example of visual-spatial intelligence means I always know what direction I’m traveling in. I'm one of those people who can give directions using north, south, east and west instead of “when you’re facing the store, go left on Main Street then go down to 1st and turn right by the coffee shop…” While I can understand this type of instruction, I need to know landmarks that I can visualize. People with high visual-spatial intelligence can picture ideas and are aware of space. I’m pretty good about knowing how much time has lapsed from one moment to another, I wonder if this has anything to do with spatial intelligence. Learning online seems perfect with this type of intelligence. If you know what works for you, then study ideas and habits can be changed. For example, instead of writing outlines for notes, use mind maps (Study Guides and Strategies, 1996). I have not experienced anything that I would deem as a tragedy. I know people who have experienced loss and tragedy, but personally, nothing. Is that a tragedy in itself? All kinds of experience helps someone grow especially the deep kind like tragedies. The closest memory to a tragedy would be waking up to my then 18 month old son shaking vigorously in his crib, completely unconscious of it. I called 911. They paramedics brushed it off has a seizure due to a fever, but Michael continued to have seizures throughout the day, so I took him to the ER. The ER doctor brushed it off that he was dreaming until a nurse saw him have one. Then they believed me. He was admitted to the PICU for a week’s time as they did testing of EEGs and of the spinal tap sort on my baby! His IV was in his foot so he couldn’t get up and move around like a toddler wants to. He loved falling asleep to Johnny Cash. We went home thinking we had the right medicine for him, but the next weekend, he had another and 16 more in the weekend before they would admit him to the hospital. Each one exhausting his body where he would stay asleep for hours. The last one, the doctors in PICU had to resuscitate him. It was terrifying for me as a 21 year old mother who had never experienced illness in the family. My earliest memory of a victory was winning “Student of the Year” in 5th or 6th grade. This meant something to me did plenty of moving around. Any time I receive acknowledgment for a job well done is a victory for me as my mother did not do any of that. When I see my kids doing something good that I taught them, that’s a victory for me. Daily Routine Resources Lieberman, D. A. (2012). Psychology of Learning San Diego, CA: Bridgepoint Education. Study Guides and Strategies. (1996). Visual/Spatial Learning. Retrieved from http://www.studygs.net/visual.htm Learner Differences First Memories of a Tragedy & a Victory 8:45 to 10:00 PM I attempt homework According to the Laws of Association, “the strength of an association was assumed to depend on contiguity: The closer in time two events occurred, the more strongly they would be associated” and also the intensity of how one feels at the time of the association (Lieberman, 2012). My mother was 16 years old when I was born; I grew up an army kid with young parents. We moved around a lot and I did not keep long lasting friendships. My parents fought constantly. When we lived in Germany, I remember yelling and glass breaking. An older neighborhood friend took me into my room so I didn’t have to witness it. I don’t remember the exchanged words, but I remember the feeling and hearing glass break. My parents divorced when they got back to the United States and we saw our father every other weekend and we moved around a lot. I remember taking care of my siblings while my mom worked on her college homework. Frustrations & Emotional Buttons My Background & First Experience 6:00 AM - Breakfast: eggs, black beans and homemade salsa with a couple glasses of water People who take advantage of others or a situation and lie and/or manipulate. Clutter or a messy room; my brain is constantly spinning, so having a clean space helps me to focus Non-dependable co-workers. Terrible customer service. All kinds of child abuse. Laziness

Transcript: The library employed the strategies I read about to motivate kids and create stimulating atmosphere When I read out loud and discussed: impact of a story Could differentiate between enthusiastic and indifferent readers If kids not exposed to the elements I observed in the library - not exercising skills - won't develop interest in reading - won't get better - cause of literacy problems in children What I did Reasons Kids don't read: not interested in what they read, struggle with skill, they are distracted, reading seems like a chore or homework Things have them do everyday, reading time, choosing what they read, talking about it, listening to adults read "Thirty-three percent of 4th grade public school students are at or below the “Basic” level on the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reading tests" (“Literacy Facts and Statistics”). "Teachers who read to their students at every grade level offer opportunities to develop this inventive, innovative, creative part of their brains" (Unkovich). Doing the Research What's left to do: Spend more time with kids who lack interest in reading and struggle with their reading skills What's left to learn: how to specifically help kids improve skill Possible Solution to the issue: Reading out loud to kids First few hours: worked at the book fair setting up, talking to Mrs. Blizel helping kids find books working the cash register Remaining hours: observe Mrs. Blizel read stories to the 3rd grade classes Discuss the story with the children shelf books help the kids find/choose books My Consultant Conclusion My Interest: children who do not read What I Wanted to Learn: importance of reading and imagination why some children don't read negative effects when they do not Selecting Service How can a lack of recreational reading in elementary school children negatively affect their reading skills, other academic success, and development? What causes them to dislike reading? How does recreational reading positively affect them? How can we encourage it? Connections to Research Experience Presentation Service: My Plan My Findings Connections to EQ target places that do not have the elements of library We need to help struggling and disinterested students Service Ideas: tutoring struggling students volunteer to provide more books for places in need volunteer to conduct reading activities Why?

Lisa Blizel: librarian at Warm Springs Elementary School Librarian for 13 years (3 at WS, 10 at James Leitch) "When kids struggle, they cannot get the images in their mind, find the meaning in the stories, and understand that reading can be fun. They can see they are not as good as other kids, this makes them feel like they are failing and it is very damaging to their self esteem. They do not want to feel this way. So they avoid it and often don't ask for help" (Blizel).
