Using the 5 “W’s” in Notes

November 3, 2011

Your assignment is to use the printed worksheet that identifies the 5 “W’s” in note taking as you view the film clips of Dr. Ben Carson. (http://community.thinkfinity.org/community/speakerseries/ben_carson)
After the video(s), please use the comment section at this site to answer the following questions.
Video: Inspiring Achievement

1. Dr. Carson suggests that enthusiasm is paramount in getting students excited to learn. What do you do when a student lags behind the rest of the class in achievement? How might you go about finding a way to reach the student and inspire his or her interest or enthusiasm? How do you stay positive and motivated when facing the disinterest of a student (or students)?

2. Dr. Carson speaks about realizing that “the person who has the most to do with what happens to you in life is you”. How do you communicate this message of self-determination to your students? What self-determining behaviors do you encourage, and how do you reward them? How can you help them perceive this is a powerful gift, and not a burden?

3. As a neurologist, Dr. Carson looks directly at brain tissue, past all the differentiators of race, gender, ethnic background and financial status. How can we use this unique perspective to help students bridge differences and tap into their innate abilities?

Video: Prioritizing Education

1. What kinds of prizes do winning sports teams in your school receive? What kinds of prizes do science and math contest winners in your school receive? How could your school make awards for achievement in STEM subjects more appealing to students and their communities?

2. You’ve heard it before — students asking: “Why do I need to go to school?” In this video, Dr. Carson says that people need to be educated for our government to work. How can we use this point to help students understand how citizenship and civic participation offers power, but requires responsibility? (For supplement on being a responsible citizen, watch the interviews with Justice O’Connor.)

3. Dr. Carson takes a very scientific approach to failure, acknowledging that it is a natural part of the process, but also challenging us to analyze it in order to learn from it. How do you address failure with your students? How do you support them, encourage their perseverance, and teach them to effectively analyze mistakes and failures in order to find solutions and success?
4. Describe a moment when you failed. What did you learn from the situation? If you could do it again, what would you do differently?

Video: Nurturing Students’ Gifts

In this video, Dr. Carson talks about thoughtful and inspiring experiences he had as a child, a young student, and university student. He suggests that students need to see their skills, learning methods, and career paths as unique and that they need to understand themselves, learn from mistakes, and plan their own futures. View the video with your students and ask each student to respond the following questions:

1. What are you strongest skills — what are you really good at? What careers might you excel at with those skills?

2. What career are you most inspired by? Why does it appeal to you? List three skills would you need to have to pursue that career. Then describe how you acquire each skill.

3. Pretend you have a quiz tomorrow. List three different ways you could study for it. Which one would work best for you personally — which would help you to learn and remember the material best?
