Ashford 7: – Week 6 – Discussion 1
Read the following case study and answer the discussion questions.
When Clark was in tenth grade, his teacher asked him to identify a problem he was trying to solve. Clark wrote the following:
“I guess I could call myself smart. I mean I usually get good grades. Sometimes I worry, though, that I’m not equipped to achieve what I want, that I’m just a tape recorder repeating back what I’ve heard. It scares me…I do my work, but I don’t have the motivation. I’ve done well on the state tests, but they are always multiple choice. I worry that once I’m out of school and people don’t hand me information with questions and Scantron sheets, I’ll be lost.
“School is kind of unrealistic that way. Kids who do well often just repeat what the teacher has said. There are so many things I should be doing, but instead I watch TV and read books. I guess that’s really my only major problem, in security. I have no self-confidence really or at least not at the right times. Fortunately, I’m very easy to please. An hour of bad TV will perk me up wonderfully. Beam me up Scotty.”
