I also help my students understand their learning styles by teaching them about the "true colors"--personality and learning styles characterized as blue, orange, gold and green learners.This study helps them in group-processing, since it promotes understanding and appreciation of differences in learning styles.Some students also benefit from reversing the teacher-student relationship by working in after-school study groups where they act as tutors.Some student mentors come to realize very quickly that teaching is a form of learning.Below I have a couple of different learning styles and ways in which you can accommodate them.
This is a more efficient approach for those students who learn better by listening than by writing.
I accommodate students with different learning styles in my classroom by using different modalities, which include auditory, visual, and tactile components.
Each teaching unit is a composite of lecture, written work, large and small group discussion, audiovisual, and laboratory activities.
These people will use phrases such as ‘show me’, ‘let’s have a look at that’ and will be best able to perform a new task after reading the instructions or watching someone else do it first.
These are the people who will work from lists and written directions and instructions.
