I believe that Read and Write it’s the best learning style for me to understand better how to take in information. First of all I will use different methods such as: dictionaries, lists, hand outs, textbooks, glossaries, definitions, notes, manuals, and essays. I would convert my notes into a learning package by reducing them. Writing out the words again
and again, reading my notes silently again and again, rewriting my ideas and principles into other words, imagining my lists arranged in multiple choice questions and distinguish each from each.2. Using information for effective learning. The second method that would help me a lot will be Visual. I rather prefer presenters who use power points, who describe their own content. The use of gestures also helps me a lot because it expresses the intentions itself. Diagrams, pictures, posters or slides any illustration will help me to have a better point of view or anything that I’m trying to learn. Writing the exam answers and practicing turning my visuals back into words.3. Communicating more effectively. I will use the Aural strategy by attending classes, participate in discussions and tutorials, discuss topics with other students and teachers, share new ideas with other people, describe the overheads, pictures and other visuals to somebody who was not there.4. Performing well in tests and examinations. I will use the Read and Write strategy organizing any diagrams into statements. I will turn reactions, actions, charts and flows into words. I will write the exam answers. Practice with multiple choice questions. Write paragraphs, beginnings and endings. Arrange my words into hierarchies and points. Write out the words again and again. Read my notes silently again and again.
