Question:

What is the best tool for writing a paragraph?

Corinne P.
Answer:

You can use a writing tool called a "paragraph hamburger." This tool visually outlines the major components of the paragraph and helps the learner organize their thoughts. There are three different parts of the paragraph which represent the layers of the hamburger. Layers of the "Paragraph Hamburger" The introduction is the top bun. The details will be the different topics on the hamburger. The conclusion of the paragraph will be visually displayed as the bottom bun. This visual display will help students structure their ideas for the paragraph and give them a way of remembering each part of the paragraph.

Question:

What are the best ways to study if you are a visual learner?

Corinne P.
Answer:

There are several ways to study if you are a visual learner. 1. You can color code your notes You can use either a highlighter or different colored pens to organize your thoughts, as well as the different concepts you are learning. For instance, you can use six different highlighter colors to differentiate the six different steps within the scientific method -- question, hypothesis, experiment, observation, analysis, and conclusion. 2. You can create a concept map Secondly, you can organize your notes by using a concept map. A concept map is a type of graphic organizer that begins with a main idea (concept) and branches out to show how the main idea can be broken down into specific topics. 3. You can draw pictures or doodles Thirdly, you can draw pictures or doodles next to your notes to help you retain the information better. For instance, you can turn your paper 90 degrees so that it's longer than it is tall. You can organize them in a way that makes sense to you as the learner.
