Subject Clearing Your Schooling (old)

For an update, please see Troubleshooting Schooling.

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

When we are young, we receive considerable “schooling” from our parents and from the school. We never question that data because it is all new to us. We are told that data in an authoritative manner, so we are not encouraged to question it. This amounts to your understanding being suppressed or conditioned. This has unwanted consequences later.

The outpoints that you are looking at here are ALTERED PURPOSE and OMITTED UNDERSTANDING. The truth is: as you understand better, you know what to do better.

.

TAKE SUPPRESSION OFF FROM LEARNING

It is important to take any suppression off your understanding. The first step is to make a list of the school subjects that you had trouble with. List them in the order they come to your mind. Then you may rearrange them in the sequence you would like to take them up.

Next, carry out the Viewpoint Expansion exercise with each subject using the following question:

“On learning __(the subject)__(the button)__?”

Use the buttons in the order given on the exercise. You may even cycle through all the buttons many times. Do this until you no longer feel threatened by the subject, or feel aversion towards it. You now feel that you can comfortably confront the subject.

Do this with all the subjects that you ever had trouble with. This could go very fast. You may now feel excited about learning in general.

.

CLEAR UP FEELINGS OF NOT UNDERSTANDING

Now that you feel excited about learning, make a list of the school subjects which make you feel that some understanding is missing. List them in the order they come to your mind. Then you may rearrange them in the sequence you would like to tackle them.

Take the first subject, and list all the key words as they come to your mind. The key words would represent the main concepts in that subject. For example, the key words of MATHEMATICS may be listed as follows:

Mathematics, digit, number, place value, counting, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, integer, zero, negative numbers, terms, expressions, factoring, and so on.

As you clear the meaning of these key words, arrange them in the order from the earliest in development to the latest. This correct sequence shall provide you with the context in which you may evaluate the concepts underlying these key words. Do this until you no longer have the feeling of not understanding the subject. You may now see clearly what you understand and what you don’t.

Do this with all the subjects toward which you have the feeling of not having understood something. You will now have certainty on what you know, and what you don’t know.

.

ONGOING STUDY

Now that you have isolated what you know and what you don’t, you may prioritize your study, and plan your education according to your interests.

As you select textbooks and start to study them, make sure you do not go by any paragraph, sentence, or word that you do not understand the meaning of.

Use the tips provided at Word Meanings

Good luck!

    Can you show me the correct sequence of clearing a school subject like chemistry ?Thanks.

  • Anonymous  On September 28, 2022 at 11:46 AM

    I’ve done the exercise.

    • vinaire  On September 28, 2022 at 1:37 PM

      I am assuming you are the same person as ‘Alfredo’ and ‘paleobent69’ and that the subject you want to clear is Chemistry.

      Now make a list of all the key words of Chemistry that come to your mind. These words are part of the vocabulary of the subject of Chemistry. You may put that list here.

      If you prefer we may communicate through MESSENGER or WHATSAPP.

      • Alfredo o paleobent69  On September 29, 2022 at 1:52 AM

        The key words of chemistry:
        Chemistry,matter,atom,elettron,proton,neutron,energy,molecules, elements,ions,chemical bond,electronegativity,atomic orbitals,quantum Numbers,chemical nomenclature,periodic table,chemical solution,atomic number,mass number,mole,concentration,solubility,chemical reactions,chemical equilibrium.
        The exercises go very well.Thanks.

    • vinaire  On September 28, 2022 at 1:42 PM

      By the way, how did the exercise go?

    • vinaire  On September 29, 2022 at 6:28 AM

      Now study the following document and apply it to the subject of Chemistry.
      https://vinaire.me/2015/12/04/the-first-hole-in-understanding/

      • Alfredo  On September 29, 2022 at 7:45 AM

        Done.
        I live in Italy and I don’ t understand spoken english very well,so I prefer reading your documents because it’s easier.

        • vinaire  On September 29, 2022 at 7:15 PM

          You are a perfect candidate for this exercise. I guessed correctly that you are from Italy. How did you find out about this blog?

          For your next step, please apply the following document.

          The Second Hole in Understanding

          By this time you will have a good understanding of the word “Chemistry”. Now arrange rest of the key words in the order you would like to clear them up. Clear them one at a time using the procedure given in

          Word Meanings

          Make sure you do not go by something you do not understand. If you run into any trouble, do let me know, and we shall discuss the problem.

  • Alfredo  On October 1, 2022 at 12:35 PM

    I’ve defined all the above key words about chemistry.What’s the next step?
    I find out your blog very interesting and useful.You’ve showed me a new approch to learn.Thanks.

    • vinaire  On October 1, 2022 at 8:10 PM

      I am glad that you find my blog very interesting and useful. Are you going to school? How old are you?

      How do you feel about Chemistry after all this work?

    • vinaire  On October 1, 2022 at 8:46 PM

      Your next step is to study the following. Study each item. Take your time.

      Subject: Education

  • Alfredo  On October 4, 2022 at 8:32 AM

    I’ve studied all the above documennts.I’m 53 and I’m an homework tutor.I’ve done the key words list, I’ve defined them,now I have to study a book releate to the subject.Isn’t it?How do I repeat all the material studied?Do I have to read all the definitions and comments only?I’d like to teach my student a new method of study.Thanks.

    • vinaire  On October 4, 2022 at 8:44 AM

      Well, I have to think more deeply about what you are trying to do.
      (1) How old are your students? Youngest to oldest?
      (2) What subjects are you teaching them?
      .

      • alfredo  On October 4, 2022 at 1:11 PM

        My students are 14-20 years old.I’m teaching them chemistry,fisic,mathematic,biology,history,grammar and english.

        • vinaire  On October 4, 2022 at 3:00 PM

          Do you work with them individually or in groups? How do you teach them?

    • vinaire  On October 4, 2022 at 9:30 AM

      Probably, you are having similar difficulties:

      Troubleshooting Difficulties

  • Alfredo  On October 5, 2022 at 1:32 AM

    I work with them in groups.They read their materials and than I checkout them on the key words and the concepts related to them.

    • vinaire  On October 5, 2022 at 5:26 AM

      Here is something you can do:

      (1) Start making a LOGICAL KEY WORD LIST and GLOSSARY for that chapter and subject you are teaching. This will, of course, expand as you go to other chapters.

      (2) Encourage your students to do same as they study their materials.

      (3) Give them the following two issues to study:

      (i) https://vinaire.me/2021/11/20/word-meanings/
      (ii) https://vinaire.me/2021/11/21/key-word-list-glossary/

      Let me know how it goes.

      • Alfredo  On October 22, 2022 at 7:54 AM
