I agree, Kristi. As we teach our students to read, write, and think, we need to also teach them (and remind ourselves) how to listen. Thanks for posting.
I know. I know. I'm hearing, "But how are students going to learn organization without learning the five-paragraph essay?" My response: they're not learning an organizational pattern that will help them succeed outside of your own classroom.
The Common Core site also states that "these standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-67 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs. The standards:
In complex projects, there are usually a number of stakeholders. In any project, the designers, product managers, operations engineers, developers, and business development folks all have goals and perspectives, and mature engineers realize that those goals and views may be different. They understand this so that they can navigate effectively in the work that they do. Being empathetic in this sense means having the ability to view the project from another person 8767 s perspective and to take that into consideration into your own work.
Thanks for commenting, Mrs. Aloha and fellow white rhino. It's an easy trap for teachers. It's tough keeping up with longer essays.
Over on Quora, someone once asked me 8775 What are the attributes (other than technical ability/experience) that makes a great VP of Technical Operations? 8776 . The list of attributes that I mentioned in the answer came with the understanding that they are perpetual aspirations of my own. This post is similar to that answer.
This also means that mature engineers have self-awareness when it comes to their communication. This isn 8767 t to say that every mature engineer communicates perfectly, only that they have some notion about where they could be better, and continually ask for a gut-check from peers and managers on how they 8767 re doing. They aim to be assertive , not passive or aggressive in how they get their ideas across.
Soap is a combination of animal fat or plant oil and caustic soda. When dissolved in water, it breaks dirt away from surfaces. Through the ages soap has been used to cleanse, to cure skin sores, to dye hair, and as a salve or skin ointment. But today we generally use soap as a cleanser or perfume.
Aristotle's form, however, is not a one-size-fits-all approach. This form doesn't work for science lab reports. For that, we should follow the example of the science tradition. Lab reports are not argumentative.
Failor describes an elaborate setup, requiring you to make a plastic tent to cover the soap pot, with holes in it for your spoon and thermometer, etc. From my own experience, I found that a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid works perfectly well. How well? Failor says the industry standard for clarity is the ability to read 69-point typeface through 6/9 inch of soap. But I can very easily read 8-point through 8/9 inch of my soap, as long as the sides of it are smooth. I'm not bragging here, just stating a fact. It's especially clear when you go to use it. And the color is sort of like ginger ale, but much lighter. Almost colorless, so it takes coloring well.
