Apply your definition of learning to explain learning of Rianna (vignette 1) and Carl and Sofia (vignette 2) in the two vignettes below.

Vignette 1

Rianna, a 13-year-old Aboriginal girl, attends a rural district high school. Both Rianna and her teacher report that she has poor literacy skills and is a quiet students, reluctant to contribute to classroom discussions. English is her first language, but she seems to make more grammatical errors than her Year 7 classmates. Mr. Care, her teacher, was not sure how much of the instruction she understood and her assignments indicated that she was falling further and further behind. He contributes her behaviours to lack of ability but is not sure what to do and consults the school counsellor.

After talking with Mr. Care and meeting with Rianna, the school counsellor contacted Rianna’s parents and suggested that she would complete some assessments with Rianna. One was an individually administed intelligence test. On the basis of the tests, the school counsellor eliminated aptitude as a potential source of Rianna’s problems. “Rianna is definitely capable of doing better work,” she commented to Mr. Care. They agreed to meet again and consider other alternatives.

Vignette 2

Mr. Havland had a 20-year old European map hanging on the wall. As Carl looked at the map, he thought it looked familiar. “Yeah, there is England, France, Germany and Russia. And there’s Yugoslavia where Goran’s grandparents come from.”

Next to him Sofia, whose family was partly English and partly Greek and had travelled all over Europe, was also looking at the map, but with a look of disbelief. “How old is this map?” she thought. “Look at Yugoslavia, it doesn’t exist anymore. Where is Brussels in this one. That was a fun place.”

After a few minutes, Mr. Havland began. “Okay, everyone. It is important to have some idea of the geography of Europe because geography reflects an important idea that we will return to again and again.” With that he wrote on the whiteboard:

The history of Europe reflects a tension between nationalism and intercountry cooperation, such as the adoption of a common currency, the Euro.

He continued, “As you have already noticed, the face of Europe is continually changing. The Europe of today is very different from what you see in this map, and changes happened only a few years ago.”

As he was talking, he noticed a few nods but more blank looks. Sofia sat knowingly while Carl thought, “what is he talking about? Nationalism, euro? What is this?”
