Paragraph 1: What is Learning
At the time that I started this course I had a tapered meaning of learning. I thought learning meant acquiring knowledge or a set of skills by experience, by being taught, or by studying. Throughout this class I have acquired a more in-depth understanding of what learning means. According to Jhnston (page 1.2) learning is “taking in world around you and connecting to way you are experiencing.” This is just the tip of the ice burg when it comes to learning, as you gain the knowledge from the world around you, learning requires that as you start to understand what you are making sense of the knowledge that you will finally come to understand what you are experiencing. As Johnston stated “learning involves using your critical thinking skills and sound judgment to respond appropriately to any workplace task, online assignment, or opportunity to speak publicly” (page 1.2). Not only is learning understanding knowledge, but also understanding how you come to understand that knowledge. There are four types of learning patterns, Sequence, Precision, Technical Reasoning, and Confluence. As a learner you should try to understand what type of learner you are. Once you figure out your unique pattern, you will be able to learn more intentionally.
Paragraph 2: Describing yourself as a Learner
When it comes to my learning patterns, I normally use them where I am most comfortable. My LCI scores are Sequence-32, Precision-35, Technical Reasoning-25, and Confluence-19. As a person that is a Strong-Willed Learner, I typically use sequence, precision, and technical reasoning first. When it comes to learning I typically use sequence to start out all my assignments so I have list that lets me know where to start and where to end. As I am learning I then like to use my precision to make sure that I have all the information for the assignment. I also like to use my technical reasoning to work on solving the problem that is in front of me. This is what I do when I am really trying to answer a question. I sometimes use my confluence pattern to brainstorm new ideas for papers and discussions. As a learner I have had to understand how my patterns work together. I have learned that each pattern has its own task in what I am doing. While doing an assignment I have found that I use each pattern as its own special task to help me understand a do the work. When I take in the world around me I have learned to use my precision more than each of my other patterns. I look for the information that is in the world and make sure I have the knowledge of the world so I can learn everything.
Paragraph 3: Combination of Learning Patterns
The combination of my learning patterns has made me a Strong Willed Learner. As a Strong Willed Learner I can easily switch from pattern to pattern. I have been able to use two or more of my patterns to get my work done. As a Strong Willed Learner I have been able to use my unique patterns to get my assignments done on time. Being a Strong Willed Learner I have the biggest benefit of getting my BA and being able to get the job I really want. I have been able to find the perfect quiet place to get my reading and work done. When I am taking my tests I normally use both my laptop and my phone, my laptop for my test, and my phone for my book. With having both precision and sequence as two of my use first patterns, I always find all the information for my assignments and discussions first and then write a rough draft on word, check my work for spelling and grammar errors, and then I post it in the classroom. As I analyze the benefits of my unique combination of learning patterns, I have been able to identify the things that I need to do to complete all my readings, assignments, quizzes, and discussions for this course.
Paragraph 4: FITing Learning Patterns
I believe as a strong willed learner one of my
History Of Education In AmericaHistory of Education in America As far back as the beginning of our nation, early leaders emphasized the importance of education and provided funds to create education for children from every background in our country.

Education Of Gifted ChildrenEducation of Gifted Children Started in the 1970?s, America?s Gifted & Talented programs are used to enhance the curriculum of students included in either category in order to challenge and strengthen their unique abilities. These students are usually provided a separate class with specialized lessons in all areas and a teacher with a special degree in gifted education. I feel that it is important that the teacher was a gifted student who would know what the students must face as above average
College DegreesCollege Degrees INTRODUCTION Many adults who graduate from high school immediately enter careers that do not require a college degree.
