Chap 3 Course Companion StudyGuide: Part 2 (pp. 91-114

d. I could apply the 5 stages of knowledge by Mohamed Youssef to snowboarding. Stage one was when i rode a snowboard for my first time during the 3rd grade. I took lessons and just started to gain knowledge on how to function the snowboard. Stage 2 was around 6th grade when i could finally go down the hill on my heel side. I would do the floating leaf as my instructor would call it. Stage 3 was around the 8th grade when i was able to go on both my toe side and my heel side rail down the slope. Stage 4 would be when i gained enough knowledge on the board that i was ready to go through the terrain park and hit some small jumps. My 5th and last stage would be around the 10th grade when i was flying down hills and doing jumps. My knowledge had really increased through the 5 stages and i am very proud of what i have accomplished.


procedural knowledge

-knowing how to surf a wave

– knowing how to shoot a basket ball

– knowing how to play golf

Knowledge claim

– knowing your phone number

– knowing your home address

– knowing gravity

experiential knowledge

– knowing where you live

– knowing your parents names

– knowing your classmates names

I believe that knowledge claims are the easiest because everyone believes them. Everyone believes knowledge claims because they are facts. I know that facts are easy to remember so that is why i think knowledge claims are the easiest to retain.

F.  Different ways of knowing

sense perception- experimental knowledge: you are able to use your 5 senses to retain knowledge like seeing, hearing and feeling

language- procedural knowledge: while using language, you can learn sports along with school classes like math or physics.

emotion- experimental knowledge: through experiences you can figure out about others feelings along with yours. You learn from like experiences how emotions affect others.

reasoning- Knowledge claim: you may use personal judgement to judge the reliability of a fact.

i. Different types of memories.

procedural memory: Procedural memory is the memory of how to due things due to experience. For example if you ride a bike for 5 years of your life then stop for a year, you will still be able to ride the bike to a certain extent.

working memory: The part of short-term memory that is concerned with immediate conscious perceptual and linguistic processing.

Long term memory: long term memory is the main storage of retained information

Declarative memory: Declaritive memory is sort of like long term memory but it is memory that you can recall after consciously thinking about it.

episodic memory: memory of autobiographical events, for example places you visited.

pg. 108-9 Justification Types

The different types of justifications can really show how you as an individual conquer your work. For example an artist can use emotions to change the feel of their art work. The setting could bring episodic memory to the audience or good or bad times. Intuition could affect a scientist by pretty much dictating what the artist should do for his next move.
