Explain why meaningful learning is so important. Include the relationship between meaningful learning and cognitive load in your explanation.
 
  What will be an ideal response?

Ques. 2

Mr. Hall, in beginning a lesson on insects, shows the students a large colored picture of a grasshopper. He then asks, What do you see in this picture? Carla? He continues by asking several students to describe what they observe in the picture.
  Based on applications of the human memory model, which of the following would be the best explanation for why Mr. Hall would choose to ask the type of questions he did?
 
  a. He was attempting to help students retain the information in working memory through rehearsal.
  b. He was attempting to help the students retain the information in their sensory memories.
  c. He was using elaboration as a strategy to promote meaningful encoding.
  d. He was checking the students' perceptions of his picture.

Ques. 3

In assessing the way Mrs. Lonzo began her lessonholding the balloon over Michelle's hairbased on our understanding of the human memory model, we would conclude that her procedure was:
 
  a. effective because doing what she did would be an effective attention-getter.
  b. ineffective because she didn't begin by having students rehearse their prior knowledge.
  c. effective because her demonstration wouldn't overload the students' working memories.
  d. ineffective because she didn't determine if the stimulus was encoded in the students' sensory memories.

Ques. 4

Mrs. Otero wants to teach her students that snakes are smooth, dry, and clean, rather than slimy, as many students believe. Using the model of human memory as a basis for her instruction, which of the following would be the best way to begin her lesson?
 
  a. Explain carefully that snakes are actually dry, smooth, and clean, and not at all slimy.
  b. Review information about other vertebrates.
  c. Show a movie in which snakes are seen crawling along in dry dirt.
  d. Bring a snake to class, and hold it up for the children to see and feel.

Ques. 5

The two most important factors that impact our perception are our background experiences and our:
 
  a. attitude.
  b. expectations.
  c. self-esteem.
  d. rate of development.

Ques. 6

The process by which we first attach meaning or interpretation to our experiences is called:
 
  a. attention.
  b. perception.
  c. rehearsal.
  d. retrieval.

Ques. 7

Again, in using the human memory model as a basis, ultimately Mr. Lopez will want the students to:
 
  a. rehearse the information on decimals and percentages to help retain it in working memory.
  b. accurately perceive what decimals and percentages are.
  c. have a schema for converting decimals to percentages.
  d. chunk information about fractions into working memory.

Ques. 8

Using the human memory model as a basis, the first thing he needs to do in his lesson is to:
 
  a. be certain that he has the students' attention.
  b. be certain that students encode the information into long-term memory.
  c. be certain that students develop the information to automaticity.
  d. be certain that he doesn't go too fast, to prevent overloading working memory.

Ques. 9

While Mr. Lindsey was explaining the social studies assignment, Missy was finishing homework due for her next class. When the class began the assignment, Missy didn't know what to do. Based on our understanding of the human memory model, Missy was lost because:
 
  a. her perception of the activity was different from that of the other students.
  b. she did not pay attention to the instructions that were given.
  c. the instructions for the assignment were out of context.
  d. the instructions were not transferred from working to long-term memory.

Answer to #1

Meaningful learning is the process of making connections between individual items of information as you attempt to make sense of the information and store it in your long-term memory. When connections are made in the information, the information acts as a large chunk, which reduces cognitive load on working memory. This is essential since the capacity of working memory is limited.
