Interview: Day 5

Today's question brought me back to yesterday's.

Interview Question:
How might research in educational psychology, such as theories about how children learn or how the brain functions, influence your approach to teaching?

My Answer:
Depending on the validity of the research in question, research findings in educational psychology would affect the organization of my instructional practices.  Also, depending upon the findings of that research, I would make sure to incorporate these facts in my planning, both long-term and short-term.  This would only make sense, as it would affect the efficiency of my instructional practices.  As in my previous response, I believe that a deeper level of understanding these processes of learning would help me in effectively presenting information to all students, especially those who have difficulty learning in the whole group setting.
