How does affect differ from effect?
Affect is a verb and it means "to influence" something. Whereas, effect is usually a noun. When used as a noun, it means "a result."
Do you think standardized teaching is the most effective way to judge learning?
No, I do not think that standardized testing is most effective way to judge learning. Although standardized testing is important, it does not work for everyone. One of the biggest things that an education has to keep in mind is that every single student is different and learns differently. They may have a student in their room that is very successful with standardized testing and another student who struggles very much with it, but they are both equally as smart.
What are some of the greatest challenges to good communication?
One of the biggest challenges to good communication is the thought that communication is about what you say rather than how you say it. Another great challenge to effective communication is focusing too much on being heard and not enough on listening to others. Another huge challenge we face today with good communication is using the wrong platforms. For example, often times when there is a difficult situation, people choose to communicate through text, email, etc.
