How do people learn effectively?

[Descriptive Title]

1. Question: (List as many as possible, BIG or small)

2. Research: What background information did you do to generate enough knowledge on the topic, in order to generate deeper questions? Keep an ongoing list of research references here, in order to generate a work cited later.

1.  Purpose: A single question that states the problem you are trying to answer.

3. Hypothesis: If…[insert what is changed or what you are doing], then [insert what you think will happen/what you think you will see or observe], because [insert WHY you think this will happen, give a reason for your guess].

4. Design and Test an Experiment:

Materials: This is a list of all the materials that you need to do the experiment.  This list should include the NUMBERS of the items needed.

Procedure: List the specific steps that you went through to conduct the experiment.

Data Table:

  • Should be done with a ruler and a pencil (NO WHITEOUT!)
  • Title
  • Heading for each column (what was being measured)
  • Units for each column

Identify the Independent and Dependent Variable:

  • X:
  • Y:

Graph: Use Google Sheets

  • Title
  • Axes should be labeled and have units of measurement
  • A key should be provided when necessary
  • Numbers should be correctly/evenly spaced
  • Independent variable should be listed on the X axis
  • Dependent variable should be listed on the Y axis

Conclusion: 

Paragraph One:

  • Claim – Your claim is the answer to the question you were trying to answer. This should be the first sentence in your paragraph. If you have multiple claims, you need to address them in separate paragraphs.
  • Evidence – Your evidence is the data you collected during the lab. Use your data to support and backup your claim. Discuss the patterns in your data; reference the ACTUAL numbers and trends in your data table and graph.
  • Reason – Provide an explanation for what your data tells you. Explain why or how the evidence/data supports your claim.

What learning style or modalities help students with memorization and comprehension?

If 28, high school students are given 14 vocabulary words and told to memorize and comprehend the list in 30 minutes, using different learning modalities, then the group that is given auditory and visual methods of learning the vocab will have the highest performance, because stkhgdrjkgnsdkjhgurdihgnvkjxdcljgdsli
