REAL-LIFE DIVERSITY TRAINING . . . THROUGH UNIQUE

seating arrangements that copy

STABLE ATOMS.

This classroom is tailored for 45 learners and uses the first four atomic elements as role models of behavior:

H = hydrogen = (E1:P1)

D = deuterium = (E1:P1:N1)

He = helium = (E2:P2:N2)

Li = lithium (E3:P3:N3)

E p n definitions l.jpg
E:P:N DEFINITIONS

  • MACRO level:

    • E= Electron =manufacturing/technical development

    • P = Proton = marketing/entrepreneurial selling

    • N = Neutron = Human Resource develop/management

  • MICRO level:

    • E = the “worker” of a family

    • P = the prime “decision-maker”

    • N = a tutor/counselor hired to help with children, etc.

E p n setup procedure l.jpg

Homework: Look up (in dictionary) in this configuration to evaluate “sayings” according to the E:P:N categories: EPN, EP, PN, E, P, or N

“ELECTRON”

“PROTON”

“NEUTRON”

(H) “hydrogen”, (D) “deuterium”,

(He) “helium”, and (Li) “lithium”

Select a preference in (atomic):

Characteristics

Impact on surroundings

Responsibilities

Prepare to report (in any language):

Why chosen

For what period of time

With what reliability factor

(50 – 100%) to rate the strength of their commitment . . . their perceived resolve and, therefore, market value

In class: (the next day or week)

Students:

make 45 signs (16 ‘E’s + 16 ‘P’s + 13 ‘N’s)

select a temporary seat, then

create a group report of their atom’s unique nature, impact, and responsibilities to the unit

exchange reports with other like groups, note discrepancies, and come to a consensus

Teacher

records their presentations (for the research archives AND their parents)

checks everyone’s understanding of each atom’s nature and impact on self and others

conducts the vote on how long the current seating is to be adhered to: a week? Month? Semester? Year? Full two years?

has students sign a contract (that they agree to role play their self-chosen part for the duration of the agreed-upon period of time (a renewable contract with a 3-lesson cancellation clause)

praises students for taking on these new responsibilities and offers ongoing help

E:P:N setup procedure:

Created for Zhengzhou University & Cohorts


E p n outcomes measured against past performance scores l.jpg

Better math scores in this configuration to evaluate “sayings” according to the E:P:N categories: EPN, EP, PN, E, P, or N through better reading comprehension (researched to be enhanced by the regular use of the C-Test).

Better communication skills through practice in negotiating values and strategies, and reaching a consensus (judged through a peer evaluation) solicited at the end of each contract period.

Better grades on all language-related subjects through increased oral production of language during negotiation tasks (in class, at home, and via e-mail, phone, and/or other electronic devices).

Superior motivation, which is researched to be present whenever young learners get to choose their own learning style, curriculum, and their associated responsibilities.

The E:P:N procedure is also a mini lesson in physics, which is expected to increase a learner’s interest in, and love for, this finest of fields for developing cognitive and contemplative prowess (thinking skills).

Excerpt from training slide 1 l.jpg
Excerpt from training slide #1: in this configuration to evaluate “sayings” according to the E:P:N categories: EPN, EP, PN, E, P, or N

Communicative learning--communicative language acquisition--is now well researched and documented to be the most effective and efficient way of developing abilities into skills and skills into knowledge and, thereby, confidence.

Today’s first memory peg is ASK--the shuffled acronym of the industry term, KSA. The Human Resource departments throughout the country use KSA’s (Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities) as the full spectrum of the learning process. In E:P:N-based language acquisition, we ASK . . . we affirm the presence of ability first.

So, don’t start by impressing one another with your knowledge, start your day with questions. ASK! Children do it . . . and they are said to “inherit the earth” one day. In Christian Scripture, Mat 7:7 (NIV), it states, "Ask and it will be given to you.” In that version, the keyword ASK is used 776 times. Let’s add our acronym to it and have a full 777 occurrences. That’ll also help us remember Mat 7:7, right? (Go to the HABITS chart and find appropriate entries, meaning: find statements dealing with “asking” and decide if and to what extent you wish to train them.)

Homework: Find a definition for Communicative Language Acquisition that you like, then memorize it and prepare a dialogue that asks and answers two contrasting questions. (Think of contrasting questions coming from Electrons and Protons and remember to add the voice of a neutron who sees validity in both arguments.) Add research if you know how.
