This doesnt mean that you sacrifice quality and basic editing in the process of going simpler but it may mean you trade in some of those $10 words for $5 words and cut that 1,000 word piece to 2-500 word pieces instead. It means that you put items in bullets and instructions in lists and you get to the point as quickly as possible without a lot of fluff. Some writers are better at producing offline content and cant shift to the online methods of successful content. Then there are some who can rake in the readers online but couldnt hack it at all in the offline publishing world. Some gifted writers (or well trained writers) can learn to do both. The latter requires being able to shift back and forth according to which venue you are writing for. Ultimately, understanding the difference will make a world of difference in your writing career.
Have you ever watched the television show, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? On this show, adult participants are quizzed on subject matter from 5th grade textbooks, opposing a panel of 5th grade students. The adults generally dont fare very well, while the students shine. Why is this? Could adults, with much more education, including college degrees, know less that 10- and 11-year-old students? This show clearly points out some major differences between childhood learning and adult learning that I will discuss in this article. ets start with a 4-stage learning model. Stage 1: Data Stage 2: Information Stage 3: Knowledge Stage 4: Wisdom.
What was your 5th grade teachers name? How is that relevant to you, now? Dont try to apply logic just free flow with me a few moments. Focus on what significant characteristic you specifically remember about her/him. Indulge me if you will, as we tie up some very loose frayed ends. As you travel back in time to the address of residence, can you recall the specific numbers and name of street or road? If not, this minute, give it some thought later. See what shows up when you are least expecting it. Part of your self still remains in that sphere of life, in that classroom, in that school with that particular teacher; in the midst of very happy times, some sort of disappointment occurred. The lingering diffused memory of the disenchanting incident need not be obvious, but the memory of the teacher should.
5th grade parents, now is the time to help your child get organized for middle school success. The demands on a childs organizational skills increase dramatically. Why is the 2nd semester of 5th grade such and important time in a childs development? The big jump is coming! That leap from the cozy classroom of the 5th grade will seem like a distant memory when your child hits the hallways of the new middle school. The noise, the confusion, the complexity. While most of todays middle schools put a valiant effort into smoothing the way for 6th graders, it is often at the beginning of this transition grade that any issues a child has with organizational skills will quickly come screaming to the forefront.
Mouthing the words, she said, "Its time. Follow me, please." I felt a lurch in my stomach. Here we go. The producer hurriedly led me to the studio, where Leeza and the studio audience were waiting for me. After personally introducing herself to me (Leeza was very warm and articulate, instantly putting me at ease), the red dome lights on all the cameras were blinking, which meant they were now taping. Easing herself into a chair next to me, Leeza started off the show by asking what it was Mrs. Jordan did for me over thirty years ago. I related the story about how the announcement of those three words, "THATS RIGHT STEPHEN," was such a powerful moment and how it forever changed my life.
The first stage of learning is the collection of data. We are all inundated with data - every page we read, every email and text message, everything we hear - in fact, everything that is taken in by all of our senses -- is data. Elementary school students are taught a lot of data. Adults are also inundated with data, but while the students are expected to absorb everything they are taught, adults look for relevance and purpose within the data - they filter the data according to their needs and interests. Management guru, the late Peter Drucker, said that when you give data relevance and purpose, you get information - the second stage of the learning model. Adults seek information. Children dont know what will be relevant and purposeful to their lives, so they absorb all the data they are given. As they mature into adults, a lot of the data they learned in school is laid aside in their brains so that they can focus on what is relevant and purposeful to their lives. For some people, much of this data gets buried deep within their long-term memories and can be recalled - these people become the trivia experts and the Jeopardy contestants. But for most people, much of the data absorbed in school is lost - thats why adults have such a difficult time on the television show.
