Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly shortened to Valentine’s Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It was deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines“). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Modern Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine’s_Day)

The Scott 20-10-20 Processing Curricula Development Plan for Lesson Planning 2010 & Beyond: The Paranormal Psychology View–International Library of Paranormal Psychology
Curricula development and the United States of America Educational System falls under paranormal Psychology (PNP) because curricula development, lesson plans, test construction, and extracurricular activities consider students’ physical, physiological, biological, psychological, and social development. With improvements in identification and diagnoses of true psychopathology and what is called the “mainstreaming system”, paranormal psychology is a discipline to collect effective improvements for our “mainstream population” of students for solutions to the educational issues.
Students that are a part of the mainstream “student body” may have mild forms of psychopathological disorders that will not be diagnosed or formally treated, and effects achievement and functioning. Understanding the non-psychopathological issues improve curricula development, test construction, lesson plan development, improve social training, and increase participation of students in extracurricular activities.
Some non-psychopathological presentations of symptoms are a result of the changes in society, increases in technology, and increased access to information.
The Scott 20-10-20 Processing Curricula Development Plan for Lesson Planning 2010 & Beyond is based on the majority of the populations increase in mental processing speed. An example is typing speed verses writing speed. Typing speed is faster than writing speed. When a person is comprehending what is being typed, the more words typed per minute shows an increase in mental processing. Data inputting is not considered because it does not require reading or understanding what is inputted.
Computer use video games and movies that replace reading a book have contributed to an increase in mental processing speed. School curricula must match the current mental processing of children.
I predict that more children will present as ADD or ADD w/Hyperactivity. It is not ADD or ADD w/Hyperactivity, it is a generation or two of children with a processing speed and learning processing that is not matched by the current school system curricula.
The solution to the problem is:
- Shorter, quicker paced lessons.
- Repeating the information in different ways in this shorter or briefer lesson.
The Standard Process for The Scott 20-10-20 Processing Curricula Development Plan for Lesson Planning 2010 & Beyond style is:
- A 20 minute lesson: what the lesson is about, the details of the lesson, and what the lesson was about.
- A 10 minute activity that reinforces details of the lesson.
- A 20 minute in a different presentation of the original lesson: what the lesson is about, the details of the lesson, and what the lesson was about.
This process of learning is based on a 50 minute learning period or class.
