Question:

What is the concept of nature vs. nurture and what does that mean in terms of psychology?

Inactive
Alexa H.
Answer:

In terms of psychology, nature means what happens biologically, or rather, what an individual is born with. Nurture is the environment in which the individual is developing in. In terms of psychology, behavior is typically based off of the combined interaction between these two ideas, Rarely do psychologists consider solely one idea as the root cause of an individual's behavior.

Question:

Who patented the Cotton Gin and what historical impact did it make?

Inactive

Answer:

Eli Whitney was the inventor of the cotton gin. This led to a major historical impact because it allowed for a more rapid separation of seeds from cotton. However, this did not lessen the demand for slavery. Therefore, as the demand for slavery increased to produce cotton, cotton quickly became a staple for planters to profit off of both land and slave labor.

Question:

How can you best determine if a student understands the material you are teaching, or if they may need additional supports?

Answer:

Frequent and intentional formative assessments should be given throughout the lesson or given teaching material. These assessments may be as simple or as complex as the teacher makes them, however, they should be used to gauge student understanding of the topic. For example, a simple request of a thumbs up or thumbs down to show their understanding of the content from students would be appropriate.
