Week 5 blog

The author talks a lot about the connection between creativity and student learning, in your opinion, how are intelligence and creativity related?  Are the notions of imagination and creativity captured within any SOLs you have found?  If so which ones, and in what ways?

I believe that creativity depends on intelligence. To fully be creative you have to have some to a lot of knowledge on whatever you want to be creative on. For example, if you want to be creative and make another version of a song, you have to have knowledge in that field. I definitely believe that imagination and creativity is captured in SOLs. Mainly, we see creativity and imagination in science but could be applied to history as well. For science, we have to use our imagination to picture elements, atoms, states of matter, etc and be creative to draw what we think they look like. For history, we also have to use our imaginations and mentally picture events that have happened in the past.

What does it mean to be a learner?

To me, learning is like life.  We start off with small knowledge (possibly) just like the size of newborns, small. Throughout learning, experiences change or broaden our view just as throughout life. As you get older you grow just like your learning. You never really stop learning. Although you do have a stop to life until then you are constantly gaining experiences and growing.

Week 3 Blog post

I remember early on in school, we would always draw or color when learning about the continents and oceans of the world. This helped young students differentiate what was land and what was water. We understood that land was green and water was blue so having us draw it out ourselves and label, really helped memorize which pieces were continents and which were oceans. I remember even doing this is high school history when we learned about different countries in the continents.
