Nason On Education A Student Must Organize Learning Into Knowledge By LESLIE J. NASON Professor of Education, USC You say you're having trouble with your school work. As many other students have done in the past, you come to me protesting, "Dr. Nason, I just can't seem to remember a 11 those dates, all those names, all those facts."

Your trouble probably is a lack of organization, not necessarily organization of work habits but of the other. Let the left side of the line represent the beginning of any period you are studying Let the right side represent 100 years later, or even 200 years. 2. Put on this line all of the dates that you know from your history lesson which fall into this period. Label these dates with names and places. 3. Refer to your text for other dates which you can add to help Stray Postcard Irks Nigerians By ROBERT M. LINDSAY IBADAN, Nigera (AP)-A postcard that went astray has given the American Peace Corps its first black eye in the field. Nigerian university students demanded Sunday that the corps unit sent to teach Nigerians !>e "With all the training we had, we were really not prepared for the squalor and absolutely primitive living conditions rampant both in the cities and the bush.

Throw the whole thing away and do the same thing again tomorrow. Time lines are just one means of helping you organize those errant facts that seem to be so elusive when you're trying to recall them to answer questions. Here's another sure-fire way of organizing learning into knowledge. 1. Read the first chapter of one of your textbooks and from memory write a one-page outline of what was covered. What did the author talk about? Keep your out' line in short sentences. 2. Check this against the table of contents and the chapter heads. What did you leave out? Correct your outline. 3. Now try to incorporate the second chapter with the first and still keep your written-from-mem- J Pakistan Camel Cart Driver Gets Gilt-Edged Treatment I President Adolfo Lopez Mateos., Bashir's trip originally was scheduled for July 4 but was delayed until after the visit of the Pakistan President.
