    Problem solving is a cognitive exercise based on prior experience, and Gestalt processes. Personally, I am of the opinion you cant teach it except by modeling, but students learn it by experience. Read that paper.

    Problem solving is a basic skill needed by today’s learners. I guess for each grade level (elementary and middle school) i would present the problem, look at the pros and cons of each potential solution (come up with them first) and then select the best one. I will have to identify the problem. After I identified the people I will have to define the problem through looking at the alternatives, brainstorming, and checking out the different points of view. I will also act on the strategies and look back at it and evaluate the effects of my activity. Here are three characteristics of problem solving. The first is problem solving is a cognitive but is inferred from behavior, problem solving results in behavior that leads to a solution, and problem solving is a process that involves manipulation of or operation on previous knowledge.


    that sound ok?

    Ok, you need 200-300 words. So amplify: how do you look at alternatives, get kids to brainstorm, and check out differing views? How do you get them to model with their behavior? Then the paper should be done.

    To solve problems, learners have to want to do so, and they have to believe they can. Motivation and attitudinal aspects such as effort, confidence, anxiety, persistence and knowledge about self are important to the problem solving process. The goal for problem solving is always for the learners to transfer what they learned to new situations. With a problem exercise is help the students understand the goal, and then I will help them break it down into smaller goals. I will also ask questions. This will encourage the students to grasp the skill.

    In all honesty, I stopped reading after the words "I guess." That phrase makes it sound like you didn't really look into it. I honestly did not read past that point, but if I am reading someone's ideas of how to best do something and I saw the words, "I guess" in the first part of the paragraph, I wouldn't read any more.
