Modes of Learning
Dr. Glasser is an internationally recognized psychiatrist who has been studying learning for decades. He states:
We learn…Clay mastery techniques address all modes of learning
10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what we see
50% of what we see and hear
70% of what we discuss
80% of what we experience
95% of what we teach others.
The steps of Davis Symbol MasteryTM, provided at Rocky Point Academy, include all modes:
Reading: The definition is read, displayed visually and then the word is written in clay under each model.
Hearing: Each part of the model is verbally identified by both the facilitator and the client.
Seeing: Visual models of concepts are created and viewed by the client. Charts or diagrams are used to supplement learning as needed.
Discussing: Discussion is used to guide the client towards discovery and creation of each part of the model, until complete understanding is achieved.
Experiencing: Clients create the meaning in three-dimensional, real world clay models and then find examples in their environment.
Teaching: The client teaches the concept back to their facilitator to clarify complete mastery.
