Where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical, heuristic methods can be used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution. Heuristics can be mental shortcuts that ease the cognitive load of making a decision. Examples of this method include using a rule of thumb, an educated guess, an intuitive judgment, stereotyping, profiling, or common sense. More precisely, heuristics are strategies using readily accessible, though loosely applicable, information to control problem solving in human beings and machines. Example Here are a few other commonly used heuristics, from George Pólya's 1945 book, How to Solve It: Psychology Well known Lesser known
Prepositions: Vocabulary for Beginning Readers Vocabulary for Pre and Beginning Readers Basic vocabulary is necessary for a child as they begin to learn to read. Children learn the meanings of most words indirectly, through their everyday experiences. While most vocabulary is learnt indirectly, direct vocabulary learning in addition to indirect vocabulary learning is useful. About 300 more words can be learnt each year as a result of direct vocabulary instruction, (Stahl & Fairbanks, 1986). Basic vocabulary for beginning readers include: colours; prepositions; common objects and locations; pronouns; parts of everyday objects; adjectives; occupations; quantity words; materials; shapes; and patterns.

how to be creative Accept that you’ve got the creative urge and it’s never going to go away. Make friends with it. Drink some tequila if you need to. Commit to the process. Engage! There is a gap between where you are and where you want to be. You eat the elephant one mouthful at a time. Creativity happens in the relationship between you and your medium, whether it’s the violin or writing or painting or puppetry or interpretive dance or start-ups or some combination thereof (interpretive dance puppetry, which I hear is wildly underrated). Find your tribe. Avoid toxic people. Seek constructive feedback. Master your tools. Master the difficult. Celebrate your progress, step by step by step. Embrace your limitations and constraints. If you don’t have any limitations, make some up. Develop creative rituals. Control your space. Be imperfect. Reframe failure. Go for bold heroic failures. Be solitary. Be social. Feed your head. Create conversation. Go where the conversation isn’t. Shift perspectives.

There is no doubt that our public schools are spending millions of dollars in our classrooms on the development of interventions for struggling students because of the accountability on state exams. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
