  • Title: Journal 2
  • 1.What experiences in your early childhood would have contributed to your brain development? Experiences in my early childhood that have contributed to my brain development would have to be continual encouragement throughout struggle during my childhood which has influenced my adulthood greatly. There have been many times when I have failed trying to reach one goal. I have been taught since childhood if you cannot obtain something one way then attempt a different approach. 2.Write about your physical growth, development, and health as a child. Were you physically active or more sedentary? What childhood illnesses or injuries did you have? Did you grow more quickly or slowly (or about the same) as your peers? My childhood was very active child. The activities that I was involved in were basketball, volleyball, track and dance. I would consider myself a tomboy growing up. There were not any major illnesses or injuries growing up (besides an occasional cold). My physical growth was about the same as my peers though I was the smallest one of all my peers yet had the biggest attitude. On occasion I will get mistaken for a 16 year old oppose to a 26 year old which I think is a great compliment. 3.Write about two memories from elementary school: a) a constructivist learning experience, AND b) a traditional learning experience. Constructivist learning style I experienced in elementary at Stonegate would have to be with my spelling teacher. She would incorporate games into learning. I remember her giving us the option of developing our own games as a group to help us understand and remember material taught in the class. That class was really fun and I loved attending that class. Traditional learning style I experienced in Elementary were as the teacher became upset and frustrated when a student asked many questions pertaining to a subject and inquired about the teacher providing a physical demonstration. What stood out the most was the teacher responding very rude “Either you get or you don’t, I am not going to act it out”. The traditional style of teaching creates a barrier between the student and teacher. Sometimes a physical demonstration or activity is needed for one to properly intake what is being taught. 4.Describe a relationship during your childhood in which you were the "apprentice" and an adult or older child was your "mentor." What activities did this person mentor you in, and how did he/she scaffold the skill? My mentor was my volleyball, Track, and basketball coach, Mrs. Williams. She believed in me when I did not believe in myself. She taught me to be accountable for self. Mrs. Williams would kick me off the team almost every other week for my hot temper. However, she would always let me back onto the team because she said she could see my passion for the game. Mrs. Williams taught me how to separate my anger/temper from passion for what I loved. Mrs. Williams would always say she understood my frustration but my behavior and actions may be misconstrued by others. I now understand what she meant.
