So, last night I was talking with my lass, and happened to show her one of my diagrams. I keep a batch of them around, and it happened to resonate. And (to use a horrible social media ploy): you’ll never believe what happened next!
So, we were talking about her school things, and among the topics was the strategy for studying. She’s seen a friend who basically studies the night before an exam, and does well. Of course, she’s forgotten it all within a week. Whereas my lass works hard, doesn’t do quite as well on the test (she has a wee bit of test anxiety, but not much), but will remember it later. She’s (fortunately) interested in learning for intrinsic interest, rather than to meet the hurdles (but capable and willing to do those too).
