Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
|Understanding the Patterns of Others [CLO: 2]|
Prepare: Critically read Chapter 4 of your textbook. Then, pick one adult in your life you regularly interact with and guess their level of use for each Pattern. If you prefer, give them the LCI using these instructions download. Note: This version is appropriate for individuals ages 16 and up.
Reflect: A heightened awareness of the similarities and differences between yourself and others around you is a critical component in the process of becoming an intentional learner. Reflect on how this individual’s Learning Patterns are similar to or different from yours.
Write:In a minimum of 250 words, address the following:
- For the person you chose, identify the level of use (Use First, Use as Needed, Avoid) for each Learning Pattern and describe how they use it. Specify if you are guessing the level of use or if you gave them the LCI.
- Remind us of your Learning Patterns by listing the level of use.
- Provide an example that demonstrates how Learning Patterns led to positive interactions or created friction between you and the person you selected. Applying what you know about Learning Patterns, how do you now view the incident?
Respond to Peers: Review your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. Share what you learned about how you can interact with others whose Patterns differ from your own. Provide additional advice on how your classmate could improve or maximize their communication with the person they have identified. Each response should be a minimum of 50 words.
