TE 150 – Exam 3 Study Guide Theme 3: Learning and Development Happens in a Social Context Theme 4: Learning Can Be Strategic The Exam : Exam #3 focuses only on Theme 3 “Learning Happens in a Social Context” and Theme 4 “Learning Can Be Strategic. It consists of matching (10 questions worth 2 points each), short answer (4 questions worth 10 points each), and essay (1 question worth 30 points) questions based on the lessons covered in Themes 3 and 4. Matching questions will consist largely of brief scenarios that you will need to match with ideas/terms we have been studying. Short-answer questions will be similar to the scenarios you see in the sample matching section below, except they will ask you to analyze each scenario using specific ideas we have been studying. The essay question will consist of analyzing a mini-case using specific ideas that we have been studying, so the essay is similar to a larger short-answer question. Thus, the exam will largely emphasize the application of what we have been learning throughout Themes 3 and 4, including recognizing, identifying, and explaining these ideas given real-life (i.e., “authentic”) scenarios. You will also want to review your class notes and readings to further your understanding of Themes 3 and 4 concepts and ideas, after you have mastered the content stated in this study guide. The Study Guide : 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. An answer key is provided at the end of this study guide . Second , the key ideas (i.e., “ core conceptual content ”) that you are minimally expected to know and understand are listed by lesson. Most of the concepts are organized around questions below to encourage thinking about the course material more deeply. Recommendation/Suggestion : Preparing for an exam provides an excellent opportunity to develop a deep understanding of what you are learning. Therefore, the following is highly recommended and suggested. 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) along with answers. You can email these to one another and use them as practice to more deeply understand the various Themes 3 and 4 concepts. 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.
