  38. In order to perform optimally as a college student (as well as in life generally), individual must?
    • Have adequate self-esteem
    • Be organized
    • Have motivating (moderate, not overwhelming) levels of anxiety
    • Be proactive and not avoidant
    • Be assertive and not passive
    • Be unjammed by frustration
    • Maintain motivation or gumption
  39. Low Self-Esteem
    • Negative self-concept, especially as a student (feeling stupid)
    • Not accepting responsibility for one's education
    • Feelings of inferiority and rejection
    • Depression, fearfulness, helplessness, frustration
    • Expecting failure, seeing success as te exception that proves the rule
    • Over-sensitivity to critism
    • Usually low self-esteem is defended against by such reactions as bravado, superiority, indefference or hostility.
  40. Disorganization
    The student may be unable to structure or order work, time or surroundings. When the student can't lacate important papers, or misses appointments, it may appear he/she is simply sloppy or indifferent.
  41. Anxiety
    Anxiety is a feeling of painful or apprehensive uneasiness closely related to fear. It is especially characterized by dread or anticipation of some unclear threat. Previous academic failures can create high levels of anxiety in students, especially in regard to test taking.
  42. Avoidance
    The student may procrastinate or avoid doing work altogether, in order to circumvent failure or reduce anxiety. This may be seen laziness or irresponsibility.
  43. Passivity
    Like a bunny laying low to see what develope, the passive student avooids making mistakes by waiting for others to make the first move. This "learned helplessness" is reinforced whenever a well-meaning rescuer prempts the student. Passivity is of then linked to low self-esteem and not talking responsibility for one's own life, much less one's education.
  44. Frustration
    Frustration is a negative emotional state resulting primarily from obstacles or blocks to goal attainment. Frustrations can be internal (resulting from the individual's own characteristics), or external (resulting from coditions outside the persons). LD students are often frustrated by their learning disabilities and by a system which seems designed to ensure their failure. Anger and resistance are often masks for frustration.
  45. Loss of Gumption
    Gumption can be thought of as a combination of motivation, initiative, and enterprise, which are obviously necessary for a student to succeed in college. Feelings of failuure and negative emotions like those listed above can sap a student's reserve of vital gumption. The student may then give up, or appear to give up (hopefully temporarily to fall back and regroup.) At such times, the student may be seen (by himself/herself and others) as unmotivated or a quitter.
  46. Learning Disabilities and California Community Colleges
    • Under Title V of the California Code of Regulations, to meet the Learning Disabilities Eligibility Model for Disabled Student Programs and Services, a student must exhibit all of the following:

    • 2. Average to above average intellectual ability (85+);
    • 3. Severe processing deficit(s) (-1.0+ standard deviation); and
    • 4. Severe aptitude vs. ahievement discrepancy(ies) (-1.3+ SD)
  47. Six Principles for Building a Strong Memory
    • 1. Increase your interest. ou will remember tose things that interest you naturally. And you can CREATE greater interest in what you read by such devices as looking for answers to questions you have tought up, discussing your reading assignments with other students, and imagining that you are conversing with the author. Marking key ideas with a pencil also helps you to remember them.
    • 2. Separate the most important from the lesser details. Notice the highlights. Overloading the memory with too many details slows learning down, so know what to overlook. Establish a general principle as the magnetic center around whic to cluster the supporting details, be cause a unit is easier to remember than many unrelated details.
    • 3. Plan to remember. Tell yourself this is important. If you really plan to remember, you will listen with attention, strive to understand, and try to get it right the first time; all hese will strengthen the tracing upon the memory cells in the brain.
    • 4. Use meaningful organization. Nonsense is harder to remember than meaningful material. First gater the facts and ideas, then try to cluster them into categories. Example: a random list of 9 grocery items becomes easier to remember if you group it into categories such as "meat, vegetables, and dairy." The moemory span of an adult seems fixed at seve chunks of information, but you can add bits of information to the larger chunks, like metal filings clinging to magnetic centers. If new information can be associated with what you already know, it is easier to remember. Example: the root word duct = deduct, conduct, induction, aqueduct, etc.
    • 5. Recite what you have learned. This is the best device known for transferring material from the short-term to the long-term ¬†memory. Cover what you wish to remember and say it aloud. If you can say it, then you know it. Recitation deepens the memory trace because your min must hink actively about the new material. Moreover, the physical act of pronouncng and hearing your words involves more of your senses, making stronger traces on the nerves in your brain.
    • 6. Consolidate learning by reviewing. The neural traces in the mind need about 5 seconds to 15 minutes to jell or consolidate into a permanent memory. Thus, reviewing your notes immediately after class helps the new information to settle down in the mind. Thinking about new ideas while walking to te next class also helps to consolidate them.
  48. Dale's Cone of Experience
