    • Learning Styles Stacey Meister University of Phoenix
    • The 3 Learning Styles
      • Visual Learners  learn through seeing . They prefer to create pictures in their heads to help them remember information. They like charts, graphs, and hand-outs.  
      • Auditory Learners learn through listening . They like talking things out and listening to what others have to say.
      • Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners learn through moving, doing and touching. They like hands on activities and don’t like to sit still for long periods of time.          
    • My Personal Learning Style
      • I am a visual learner.
      • I like to picture the information as I learn.
      • It is hard for me to listen to a lecture and not take notes.
      • I am very organized and like teachers and students to be as well.
    • My Strengths
      • I provide my students with very organized notes.
      • I often use fun charts and diagrams to present my information.
      • I try to help my students to improve on organization.
    • My Weaknesses
      • I have a hard time remembering things when I don’t write them down.
      • It is hard for me to process information unless it is presented in a neat, logical way.
      • I don’t learn well by doing – I prefer to fully understand the task before physically doing something with the information.
    • How my learning style effects my teaching
      • As a visual learner I love to give my students hand – outs.
      • I always organize my information into charts and diagrams.
      • I love using pictures to help illustrate my ideas.
      • I try to help my students visualize the information we are learning. I help them to form pictures in their heads.
      • I love using color. I highlight important information and color code notes for my students.
      • I give my students detailed notes, but I highlight the important information so they don’t get overwhelmed.
      • In the past I haven’t incorporated a lot of kinesthetic activities into my lessons.
      • I don’t give my students as much of an opportunity to move around as I should.
      • Now that I understand the importance of incorporating all learning styles, I be able to incorporate more auditory and kinesthetic activities into my lessons.
    • The Importance of Understanding Learning Styles:
      • Now that I fully understand learning styles and how I learn, I can better incorporate all learning styles into my classroom.
      • I have given my students the opportunity to take learning inventory tests so they can better understand how they learn.
    • In Conclusion…
      • I am a better teacher for understanding how I learn. This allows me to play up my strengths and improve on areas of weakness.
      • By knowing how my students learn, I can gear my lessons towards their learning styles.
