Sun Oct 09, 2011 8:09 AM in Science - Not my favorite subject to teach

3 Learning Measurement Review
I found thus article to basically state the obvious about children learning measurements and did teach me anything helpful or new. Of course young students learn measurements playing with blocks and such, also it is obvious that volume is much more difficult to teach. However, the example the article gave to teach volume was a bit strange and I will search for other ways. The "hands measurement" example was pretty good and I may look to use it in the future

5 Minds, Models, and Maps Review
This article makes two very strong points; Comprehension is based on a students ability to "picture" it in their mind's eye and students that can form mental images and learn from the illustrations in a text have better recall and comprehension of a text. For me the most important aspects of students learning successfully are engagement, comprehension, and recall. With the ability to be able to picture things and link them to background knowledge a key element. This article also gives a basic and helpful way for teachers to help students learn how to use illustrations for comprehension.
