6.1 Making a convincing case

If you were talking to a friend about a picture hanging on your living-room wall, you might say: ‘I really like that portrait because the man looks so lifelike’. That is, you'd make some kind of judgement about the painting. (I've never heard anyone say ‘I really like that portrait because of that little white brush stroke in the top right-hand corner’.) So, in effect, you turn the process we have just been through on its head. When you are communicating your ideas to other peo

3.2.2 Identify what you hope to achieve and opportunities to work on this key skill

It is always a good idea to know what you hope to achieve in the future in terms of your learning, personal or career goals. This might be very specific, for example to improve your report writing, or it might be more general, such as, to ask for and use feedback more effectively. If you are using this in a work context, you may wish to include personal and career goals.

1.2 Influences on creativity

In the late 1630s, the poet John Milton travelled from England to Italy. While there he visited the astronomer and physicist Galileo Galilei and observed the skies above Florence through the telescope through which Galileo was studying the moon and Saturn.

6.2.3 Precise reference to ‘linear’ texts

You may find it more difficult to provide evidence from texts in which sounds, words or images follow on from one another over time (such as music and videos, plays and novels). Music is perhaps particularly hard to pin down. Sounds weave in and out of each other so that at first you may experience the music as seamless. But there are different ‘movements’ or ‘passages’ in music; moments at which a ‘melody’ is first introduced and later passages when it is repeated, for example. Y

5. Learning styles

There are now numerous resources available on learning styles or multiple intelligences, and their implications for classroom learning. At the simplest level, what teachers need to recognise is that not all of their students will prefer to learn in the same way. Although everybody is capable of working in most learning styles, we will all have our preferred learning style in which we learn most efficiently.

NASA | Jupiter's Hot Spots
Jupiter's bright Equatorial Zone swirls with dark patches, dubbed "hot spots" for their infrared glow. These holes in the ammonia clouds at the top of the atmosphere allow a glimpse into Jupiter's darker, hotter layers below. In 1995 NASA's Galileo spacecraft dropped a probe directly into a hot spot, taking the first and only in situ measurements of Jupiter's atmosphere. Now, movies recorded by NASA's Cassini spacecraft reveal that hot spots are not just local weather phenomena, but are in fact

2.6 Which intentions?

Grice makes three attempts to answer this last question. The second builds on the first; the third, which he proposes to adopt, builds on the second. In the next three activities, you will be asked to extract these attempts in turn, and appreciate the alleged shortcomings of the first two.

Introduction

Learning how to learn is a process in which we all engage throughout our lives, although often we do not realise that we are, in fact, learning how to learn. Most of the time we concentrate on what we are learning rather than how we are learning it. In this unit, we aim to make the process of learning much more explicit by inviting you to apply the various ideas and activities to your own current or recent study as a way of increasing your awareness of your own learning.

Introduction

The caring people do for family members or close friends is often difficult to define, as you're probably aware. Sometimes people are reluctant to be described as being a ‘carer’ because it signals a change in a relationship, or a change in someone's lifestyle.

How people talk about care, and the meanings that they give to what they do, can influence many aspects of caring relationships. It may determine whether help is provided in the first place, and also what kind of help is giv

2.4 Disagreeing with the author

It is clear from Kate's responses that from the outset she felt hostile to Layard's article and to Layard himself. As she later explained in a seminar, she felt that he looked down on people with low incomes, such as herself. She felt she was being told that she wasn't happy with her life and that she envied people with lots of possessions. In her philosophy, she said, happiness had nothing to do with wealth. She was just as capable of being happy as the richest people in the country. Because
