Biology Semester Two Exam Essay Questions!!!!

        The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Nevada Academic Content Standards Science (NACSS) are being introduced and implemented this year in Biology and subsequently in other Science disciplines and subjects. These new ways of learning and instruction include less memorization, less teacher lecturing, less reading textbooks and answering questions, lessening the use of worksheets, and less oversimplification of activities for students who are perceived to be less able to do science and engineering-the assumption is that all students can learn and do Science. For learners it means deeper learning of Science, learning from a myriad of sources, in depth writing about Science, using mathematics as a tool, modeling, projects, and the use of argumentation.

Show your Biology learning by cogent writing about your learning and experiences in Science.

Self-Regulated Learning – The Ultimate Goal That Great Schools Have For Students……

The term self-regulated (process of taking control of and evaluating one’s own learning and behavior) can be used to describe learning that is guided by metacognition (thinking about one’s thinking), strategic action (planning, monitoring, and evaluating personal progress against a standard), and motivation to learn (Butler & Winne, 1995; Winne & Perry, 2000; Perry, Phillips, & Hutchinson, 2006; Zimmerman, 1990; Boekaerts & Corno, 2005).

“Self-regulated learning (SRL) as the three words imply, emphasizes autonomy and control by the individual who monitors, directs, and regulates actions toward goals of information acquisition, expanding expertise, and self-improvement” (Paris and Paris 2001). In particular, self-regulated learners are cognizant of their academic strengths and weaknesses, and they have a repertoire of strategies they appropriately apply to tackle the day-to-day challenges of academic tasks. These learners hold incremental beliefs about intelligence (as opposed to entity, or fixed views of intelligence) and attribute their successes or failures to factors (e.g., effort expended on a task, effective use of strategies) within their control (Dweck & Leggett, 1988; Dweck, 2002).

Finally, students who are self-regulated learners believe that opportunities to take on challenging tasks, practice their learning, develop a deep understanding of subject matter, and exert effort will give rise to academic success (Perry et al., 2006). In part, these characteristics may help to explain why self-regulated learners usually exhibit a high sense of self-efficacy (Pintrich & Schunk, 2002). In the educational psychology literature, researchers have linked these characteristics to success in and beyond school (Corno, et al., 2002; Pintrich, 2000; Winne & Perry, 2000).

Self regulated learners are successful because they control their learning environment. They exert this control by directing and regulating their own actions toward their learning goals. Self regulated learning should be used in three different phases of learning. The first phase is during the initial learning, the second phase is when troubleshooting a problem encountered during learning and the third phase is when they are trying to teach others (Palincsar & Brown, 1984).
