Does it actually matter where someone studies?
It does! Many times students think they are studying just fine when they are surrounded by loud noises, distractions, and music- however this is not true. It is proven that you do better on tests and recalling information in general when you study in a similar environment. This means, when it's quiet in the exam room and the person studied blasting netflix, they are going to have a harder time recalling important information. This only includes different things like food. If you're studying while eating that wendy's four for four, you're going to want to take the test while eating one too. (Probably not smiled upon!). Instead, try chewing gum while studying if it's allowed during your test. It's a yummy way to boost recall!
Who was Maslow, and what is one theory he is credited with?
Maslow was an American Psychologist from the 1900s. His most famous theory is Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. This was essentially a "pyramid" that led to self-actualization, or complete fulfillment of one's self. Maslow theorized that in order to reach this goal of self-actualization, certain needs needed to be met in a certain order. That order was physiological (basic needs such as food, water, sleep), safety (including housing, and health), Love/Belonging (Family, Relationships), Self-Esteem (Respect, and Achievement), and only then could a person reach the last step Self-Actualization.
What is the difference between equity and equality, and why does this apply to a classroom?
Equity is what is fair, or unbiased. Equality is everyone receiving the same. While some people might consider this the same, they are in fact very different when considering a classroom. For example, equality in a classroom might be every student receiving the same test, with the same materials, and the same assistance. This is equal, but it is not fair or equitable to the students. In a classroom with equity, students might be given different materials in order to help them reach the same goal. This is not equal, however it is fair to each student who is now receiving exactly what they need to succeed.
