 Awareness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Awareness may be focused on an internal state, such as a visceral feeling, or on external events by way of sensory perception.
Awareness provides the raw material from which animals develop qualia, or subjective ideas about their experience.
Within an attenuated system of awareness, a mind might be aware of much more than is being contemplated in a focused extended consciousness.

 Sentinel Event Alert, Issue 32 - October 6, 2004
The frequency of anesthesia awareness has been found in multiple studies to range between 0.1 percent and 0.2 percent of all patients undergoing general anesthesia.(1,2,3) The administration of general anesthesia to 21 million patients annually in the United States translates to the occurrence of 20,000 to 40,000 cases of anesthesia awareness each year.
The incidence of awareness is reported to be greater in patients in which the dose of general anesthetic must be smaller and carefully titrated to decrease significant side effects, for example, a patient who is hemodynamically unstable.
Procedures typically identified as falling into this category are some cardiac, obstetric and major trauma cases.(4) Factors contributing to the risk of anesthesia awareness include the increasing use of intravenous (IV) delivery of anesthesia, as opposed to inhalation, and the premature lightening of anesthesia at the end of procedures to facilitate OR turnover.

Yet he does not notice that awareness is the primary source of self experience and concludes: `The self then, quite analogous to the representations of objects, is a content of the mental apparatus' (Kohut, 1971).
Once we grant the identity of `I' and awareness we are compelled to extend to the core subjective self whatever ontological propositions seem appropriate for awareness.
Awareness is something apart from, and different from, all that of which we are aware: thoughts, emotions, images, sensations, desires and memory.

 Phonemic Awareness: An Important Early Step in Learning to Read
Teachers need to be aware of instructional activities that can help their students become aware of phonemes before they receive formal reading instruction, and they need to realize that phonemic awareness will become more sophisticated as students' reading skills develop.
This Digest discusses the concept of the awareness that spoken language is made up of discrete sounds, why this concept is so important to early childhood educators, its relation to the debate on the best type of reading instruction, and finally, teaching methods that may help children in developing such an awareness.
Although phonological awareness appears to be a necessary condition for learning to read (children who do not develop phonological awareness do not go on to learn how to read), it is not a sufficient condition.

 Learning Disabilities OnLine: LD In-Depth: Phonological Awareness: Instructional & Assessment Guidelines
Assessment in phonological awareness serves essentially two purposes: to initially identify students who appear to be at risk for difficulty in acquiring beginning reading skills and to regularly monitor the progress of students who are receiving instruction in phonological awareness.
Moreover, instruction in phonological awareness is beneficial for most children and seems to be critical for others, but the degree of explicitness and the systematic nature of instruction may need to vary according to the learner's skills (Smith, Simmons, and Kameenui, 1998), especially for students at risk for reading difficulties.
Phonemic awareness is the understanding that words are made up of individual sounds or phonemes and the ability to manipulate these phonemes either by segmenting, blending, or changing individual phonemes within words to create new words.

Be aware that a single slope can have varying degrees of steepness across its face, depending on the terrain.

My international survey showed that grammatical analysis is regularly taught in some countries to children as young as six or seven (Hudson 1998), and the evidence from developmental psychology is that metalinguistic awareness starts to develop naturally between 5 and 7 years (Herriman 1994).
In the latter studies the benefit can be shown in two ways: by comparing the writing of an experimental group who have received grammar teaching with that of a control group who have not, or by correlating subjects' writing skills with their explicit knowledge ('grammatical awareness').
