From Struggle to Strength - A Gen Z View of Scholastic Success

Posted on 2019-03-06

It appears the main issue for students in my Generation Z is that we don't understand the best way we can learn, and neither do our parents and teachers. School systems are made uniform so every student is presented with class materials the same exact way, takes a test the same exact way, and so on. While on the surface this promotes equality, every student has a unique personality and they do not learn or think the same. If more school systems were to incorporate DISC theory into the classroom, students would have a clearer picture of who they are, how they learn best and how to develop themselves. For example, many students struggle taking tests, others have a hard time focusing, and for others, knowing even how or what to study can be difficult. Self-awareness and a customized classroom would improve the well-being and grades of students because they are working in ways that best suits their needs and natural strengths.

Increasing learning motivation and classroom engagement can be achieved with the application of DISC.

Posted on 2018-09-26

Procrastination isn’t a disease, yet every student may suffer from it at one time or another. Those of us who are plagued by procrastination, myself included, know it has negative consequences, yet we still procrastinate willingly. The truth is, it affects everyone regardless of personality style. Why procrastinate? Because some tasks are out of our comfort zone, time consuming, vague, stressful or just plain, not fun. Who wouldn’t choose watching Instagram over writing a term paper? The more adverse the task, the more we procrastinate.

Posted on 2018-09-07

Studies show those individuals who set goals will achieve overall better results than those individuals who do not set goals. However, only 3% of the population set goals with measurable tasks on a list. I myself like to start my day with a list – anything from putting gas to my car, to work, to paying a bill.
