Module 18

Personal study methods

Developing personal study methods

Using a “web-chart” as study method for revision.

A web-chart means making use of key words in a coloured diagram. These key words help to recall important facts. Remember: instead of key words , key diagrams or pictures may be used.

Activity 1:

To design a web-chart on study methods

[lo 3.6]

Work on a large sheet of paper, using colouring pencils.

The educator reads a topic, e.g. fish.

  • Write down the word “fish” in the centre of the page.
  • Circle the word in any colour. You could also draw a sketch in one colour of a fish around the word.
  • Use a different colour for each new fact “thread”. The lines all flow from the middle word, almost like a cobweb.
  • Expand each of these threads by using smaller key words or sketches.

Remember:

Try to make each web-hart look different and think creatively. Do not spend too much time turning it into a work of art.

It saves time using symbols and shapes instead of words, for example () for indicating good or correct, and () for bad or wrong.

Activity 2:

To design your own web-chart

[lo 3.6]

Use the work that you have to learn for the next test and draw your own web-chart.

Follow the four basic steps:

  1. Read the section that you have to learn carefully. Make sure that you understand the content.
  2. Read it through once more, but underline or highlight the facts that you consider important. These are the facts that you have to remember eventually.
  3. Now use colouring pencils or coloured Koki pens to draw a web chart. You are now going to make use of your underlined key words. These key words will serve to recall the content of the work that you have read.
  4. First draw a web chart, for e.g. a complete chapter that you have to learn. Then follow up with split-off web charts to break down the various sub-sections in greater detail.

Another hint:

Make use of a donkey bridge to remember a number of related facts, e.g. the sequence of the colours of the rainbow:

R ed, O range, Y ellow, G reen, B lue, D ark blue, P urple

R ob O r Y vonne G reen B ites D ried P eaches

Assessment

LO 3

Personal Development

The learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.

We know this when the learner:

3.1 identifies personal successes and develops an action plan for continued positive self-concept formation;

3.2 shows an understanding of and respect for body changes;

3.3 appropriately expresses and copes with a range of emotions;

3.4 explores and evaluates ways of responding effectively to violent situations and contexts;

3.5 reflects on how feedback can be given and received;

3.6 develops and implements a personalised study method.

Memorandum

Modules 14-18 focus on the development of the intellectual potential of each learner and on establishing correct study methods. Learners are equipped to effectively deal with the emotions and peer pressure that may increasingly cause problems as they approach adolescence. Educators are encouraged to make use of the input of experts such as psychologists and counsellors to add value to this aspect

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
