Learning Styles

“If students do not learn the way we teach, then let us teach the way they learn.” – Kenneth Dunn (expert on learning styles, copied from Those Who Can, Teach)

4 models of learning4 Modalities for Learning: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, and Tactile. These focus more on the process of learning whereas Multiple Intelligences focuses on the content and products of learning.

I love the quote above! It’s exactly how I want to teach in the classroom. I know that I’m a visual learner. I learned a whole language as a kid just watching my mom (and others) interpret church services (thanks, Mom). I learn while teaching or working with others, and I almost always want to know “why?” As a teacher, I hope to keep all these learning styles in mind and create flexible lesson plans with lots of variety.
