U is for Understanding

New knowledge?
Facts that have been learned
Facts remembered
Points of data previously not known
Rote recall

A challenge occurs
Facts not remembered
Lesson not learned

Another challenge
Facts put to use
In a different way even
Knowledge becomes understanding

-

Ya, random poem of random.

I love this poem. There's a great difference between understanding and memorizing something!

I know when I really want to remember something, I try to explain it to someone, when you can explain it, you know you truly understand and it's not just facts memorized.
