Unit 7 Discussion
- Discussion Question 1: VAK
Please discuss your learning styles here, based on the VAK Questionnaire results. Also, use this space to discuss your thoughts and reflections on the outcomes of your learning style assessment. When commenting, try to base your comments on the VAK paradigm (i.e. “Since visual learners achieve better results by viewing information, it might be helpful to make a graph…”).
I look forward to seeing what kind of learners you all are!!
- Discussion Question 2: MI
Traditionally, people have defined someone who is intelligent as an individual who can solve problems, use logic to answer questions, and think critically. But psychologist Howard Gardner has a much broader definition of intelligence. Compare the traditional idea about intelligence with Gardner’s.

Your task this week is to visit Change.org
Here, you will find hundreds of non-profit organizations and “causes” that underscore needs, concerns and developments in our 21st-century world. You will find organizations working to protect and sustain the environment, relieve hunger, advocate for the safety of children, provide health care to refugees, and save endangered species. For each organization or cause, there is a brief write-up of the work that is being done, and the challenges that remain.
Please identify an organization or cause and write a brief description of why you are interested in the issue. Additionally, share a “creative strategy” on how you might integrate some form of participation in your chosen issue into your professional, educational or personal goals.
We are all “entrepreneurs” for the future. As you prepare to “graduate” from this CSS class and go on to further specialized coursework in your major discipline, it will be exciting to think of ways you can make a difference!!
You can order unique answers to any or all the discussions at an affordable price.
