-1 THREE APPROACHES TO ACADEMIC LEARNING De Sellers, Carol Dochen, and Rus Hodges Basically this story explains that the quantity and complexity of material is much greater in college compared to high school, and tests demand student performance far beyond memorization. The story then begins to describe three different methods of learning that are used by students in America, Surface Learning, Deep Learning, and Achievement Learning. It starts off explaining Surface learning, which is the approach a lot of us are familiar with, especially from high school. Its basically learning based off motivation by outside rewards, and not for self desire to learn the subject. students who use Surface Learning usually: -Believe that the materials being studied is boring, useless, or irrelevant -See assignments as demands rather than opportunities -Focus on the literal aspects of the information rather than its meaning or - significance -Rely on rote memorization to prepare for performance -Avoid making personal connections to the material
