Students sometimes don't understand why they are not "getting it" right away. They don't have the patience to try and try again until they fully understand something, causing them to give up. None of us want that! These posters explain the learning process in a quick, three-step way!
The INPUT is the time when you are acquiring that new information. The information is entering your brain and you are trying to organize it so you can understand it. The PROCESS is the time when you are thinking, organizing, practicing, etc. with that new information. Sometimes you have to reread something as part of a process, sometimes you just have to keep doing practice math problems as part of the process. Lastly, the OUTPUT is when you are able to talk about the topic because you understanding it. Maybe you can even teach someone else (the highest form of output).
This item includes one poster for each of the three steps, as well as a page of small sized steps if you want your students to glue these into a journal or if you want to post them on their desks so they can refer to them often.
