While studying how we learn, our class took an edutopia.org survey that revealed I’m primarily a linguistic learner. I read that linguistic learners learn through language and can express their selves through writing such as poetry. I think this style of learning really expresses the way I learn. I love creative writing and trying to express my opinions and ideas during writing. I also have a great memory and love using references of books I’ve read and people’s writing I’ve read. I enjoy word puzzles, tongue twisters and learning new languages. I love to read for fun when I can find the time. I’ve enjoyed learning in this manner.
During this Unit on Enrichment, I read some of Christopher Hitchens’ Letters to a Young Contrarian and composed my own argument/motto for learning and living intelligently: “The hunger and motivation to do better and be better is why I yearn to learn and strive to work harder.”
My classmates and I studied Sir Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. In striving to live a passionate and purposeful life, I’ve reflected on some things that I love to do, and things that I’m really good at.Here’s a recording of me talking about one of things I love to do:
Reading has enriched my life!
