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.
When writing for marketing purposes, the key isnt to come off sounding intelligent and powerful but to appeal to everyone reading or listening to your text. There is a popular game show on right now called, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader". A game show where you match your intelligence on what a common 5th grade student currently knows and is learning. Fifth grade was chosen because this is the point right before the transition from learning the "basics" to where students are introduced to a higher comprehension of information This is where you need to target your material - the 5th Grade level. While in school you were always judged at what level of reading you were at - he reads at a 4th grade level, she reads at a 5th grade level, etc. Your readers are no different, they each read at a different level and targeting a lower level of reading will guarantee that you will appeal to ALL readers.
