Contributed by Kim Davis Movement is one of the most important aspects of a young child's life. Most early interactions involve movement.
Jason was not a teenager you think would try to kill someone. His physics teacher gave Jason a B, a mark Jason believed would undermine his entrance to Harvard. After discovering his B, Jason took a butcher knife to school then stabbed his physics teacher before being reprimanded in a struggle.
Two years following the incident in a New York Times articleit was reported Jason raised his grade average to 4. Jason got better than perfect grades and still emotionally lost himself by trying to wound or kill his teacher.
He could never improve his grade by stabbing his teacher. How can someone as smart as Jason do something so dumb? Smart can be dumb. Intelligence can work against you. How to Be Successful and Smart I regard myself as an intelligent guy. I was no Einstein but got good marks in Mathematics, Physics, and other technical subjects.
I graduated high school with the highest marks of my year level. I began a degree in Engineering, majoring in Mechatronics, an area of study that integrates mechanics, electronics, and computing. I would be able to design robotics and cybernetic systems — the wave of the future.
Such skills would surely give me an edge in life.
After one year of study with decent marks, I began to see two major classes of students. The first category of student turned up to few lectures, partied every weekend, enjoyed a great social life, and did minimal work to pass courses.
The second category of students were intelligent, hard workers, got good grades, and were very focused on their studies. Surely these intelligent, hard-working students would fill the great jobs before the lazier class of student?
Students are often shocked upon graduation that their technical qualifications are unimportant. Students in school are lead to believe their academic knowledge is the primary determinat of a great job and success. Howard Gardner in Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences defines various types of intelligence and emphasizes that schools are too focused on logic and linguistic intelligence.
The implications of emotional intelligence, which is summarized as an understanding of your emotions and the emotions of other people, are profound in communication and many areas of life. The transition for intelligent people from being goal-oriented to process and people-oriented is usually realized through experience.
If you have experience in hiring people, you know the importance of people skills. You can have great ideas, theories, and solve complex problems, but if you cannot effectively communicate that material in a persuasive and exciting manner by relating to your fellow human, you face an uphill battle in whatever challenges you encounter.
The intelligent person with poor communication skills is insensitive. Hopefully I can reveal the elusive obvious to you in this little exercise. I want you to think back to primary school or high school. Select the most memorable class to you.
I want you to categorize, and roughly rank, class members based on two sets of criteria: That is, remember the smartest few in the class and the most popular few in the class. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest, give a person a rank of ten in intelligence if you feel they were the most intelligent in the class.
For the students who had lots of friends, give them a ten in the popularity category. Try to categorize roughly six students. If you have problems remembering, quickly write the ranks down on paper.
Now, with the students you have ranked in one category, rank them in the other category. So if you have ranked the smartest student as a ten in the intelligence category, give the person a rank you feel is appropriate in the popularity category. Do the same for students you ranked in the popularity category.
Now that you have several people in each category, think about the difference between the student-types. Genius-Failure Paradox Did you noticed a distinguishable difference in the students you ranked during the exercise?
No difference may exist, but most who do this exercise notice the intelligent lack friends. The smartest were generally not very popular because they had poor social skills.Children learn their language at home; the more interaction and communication they have at home, the more children learn.
Teachers can support this crucial role by sharing information about the link between home communication and children's learning. KidsMatter was developed by mental health professionals and education and childcare staff in response to the high rates of school-age children with mental health difficulties and the problems they face getting help.
