Exam 2 Study Guide F09 1 TE 150 – Exam 2 Study Guide Theme 2: Learning Happens In Individual Brains & Minds Exam #2 focuses only on Theme 2 “Learning Happens in Individual Brains and Minds.” The exam itself consists of matching (10 questions worth 2 points each), short answer (4 questions worth 10 points each), and essay (1 question worth 40 points) questions based on the lessons covered in Theme 2. This study guide is organized in the following order. First , a sample of the kind/type of matching questions you might see on the exam is provided. Second , the key ideas that you are minimally expected to know and understand are listed by lesson. Most of the concepts are organized around the questions below. The exam will largely emphasize the application of these key ideas, including recognizing, identifying, and explaining these core concepts given real-life scenarios. There may also be some questions not based on real-life scenarios, similar to the questions stated in the lessons below. In addition, you also will want to review your class notes and reading questions to further your understanding of Theme 2 concepts and ideas, after you have mastered the content stated in this study guide. Recommendation/Suggestion : Preparing for an exam provides an excellent opportunity to develop a deep understanding of what you are learning. Therefore, we highly recommend/suggest the following idea. Make up your own matching questions and scenarios. Even better, contact a class peer or even several of your classmates and have everyone come up with at least one matching question and one scenario with a question(s). You can email these to one another and use them as practice to more deeply understand the various Theme 2 concepts in this study. By making up questions and scenarios, you are more deeply processing the course concepts and thinking of how you might use or see them in real life as a teacher – a great example of encoding via elaborating. And if your questions might happen to contain misconceptions, your peers can help you better clarify your understanding as well as further confirm their own understanding. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved, demonstrating cooperative (not competitive) learning, and it involves a minimal amount of time and effort by everyone but can result in a lot of questions and scenarios as more and more of your peers participate.
