Here are a few examples: PEMDAS: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction (order of operations in math) HOMES: Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior (names of the Great Lakes) ROY G. BIV: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet (colours of the rainbow) My very eager mother just served us nine pizzas: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (order of the planets from the sun)
Illogical content refers to writing that contains flawed reasoning or contradictions that do not make sense. It is important to ensure that your writing is logical and coherent in order to effectively convey your message to your audience. If you are struggling with creating logical content, consider outlining your ideas and double-checking your arguments to ensure they are sound.
Transformational teaching is based on the idea that an instructor's purpose is greater than the delivery of information. Rather than being content-focused, transformational teachers help students become meta-critical participants in the learning process and well-practised at critical thinking, goal setting and reflection.
