    • UNDERSTANDING LEARNING STYLES FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING
    • Targeting an Intelligence When writing a lesson plan, most teachers teach to the majority of their students. The downside to this that not everyone learns in the same way.
    • Teachers must know When teachingthat it is imperative they know who their students really are.
    • Also When giving an assignment it is important they know how to address as many intelligences as possible.
    • Different learning Styles• In 1983 Dr. Howard Gardner, of Harvard University, developed his theory of multiple intelligences. • He believed that no two people learned the same way. • He proposed the following eight different intelligences.
    • Dr. Howard Gardner’s Intelligence ClassificationsLinguistic “Word Smart”Logical-Mathematical “Number/Reasoning Smart”Spatial “Picture Smart”Bodily-Kinesthetic “Body Smart”Musical “Music Smart”Interpersonal “People Smart”Intrapersonal “Self Smart”Naturalist “Nature Smart”
    • However, his hypothesis has beenreviewed over time and scholars arrived at 3 basic learning styles which are: Visual Auditory Kinesthetic/ Manipulative
    • Learning style is defined as the wayinformation is processed. It focuses on strengths, not weaknesses.There is no right or wrong learning style
    • BASIC LEARNING STYLESVisual learners learn by watching (they think in pictures). They call up images from the past when trying to remember. They picture the way things look in their heads. Forty percent of secondary students fall into this category.
    • VISUAL SUMMARY Score mostly A’sVISUAL SUMMARY
    • Take numerous detailed notes
    • Are usually neat and clean
    • Often close their eyes to visualize or remember something
    • Tend to sit in the front
    • Like to see what they are learning
    • Benefit from illustrations and presentations that use color
    • Are attracted to written or spoken language rich in imagery
    • Find something to watch when bored
    • Find passive surroundings idea
    • BASIC LEARNING STYLES AUDITORY Auditory learners students learn by listening (lectures, discussions, tapes etc) and remember facts when they are presented in the form of a poem, song or melody.. They can sometimes have trouble reading, because they dont visualize well.
    • AUDITORY SUMMARY B B Score mostly B’s
    • Sit where they can hear but needn’t pay attention to what is happening in front
    • May not coordinate colors or clothes, but can explainwhy they are wearing what they are wearing and why
    • Hum or talk to themselves or others when bored
    • Acquire knowledge by reading aloud
    • Remember by verbalizing lessons to themselves( if they don’t have difficulty reading maps or diagrams or handling conceptual assignments like mathematics)
    • They can sometimes have trouble reading, because they dont visualize well
    • KINESTHETIC/ TACTILE Kinesthetic learners learn best through movement and manipulation (viaexperience – moving, touching and doing). They like to find out how things work and are often successful in the practical in the arts, such as carpentry or design. These students make up 50 percent of secondary students and have difficulty learning in a traditional setting.
    • KINESTHETIC/ TACTILE SUMMARY.Score mostly C’s
    • 2.Need to be active and take frequent breaks
    • 3Speak with their hands and with gestures
    • 4 REMEMBER WHAT WAS DONE, BUT HAVEDIFFICULTY RECALLING WHAT WAS SAID OR SEEN
    • 5FIND REASON TO TINKER OR MOVE WHEN BORED
    • 6RELY ON WHAT THEY CAN DIRECTLY EXPERIENCE OR PERFORM
    • 7 Activities such as cooking, construction,engineering and art help them perceive and learn
    • 8Enjoy field trips and tasks that involve manipulating materials
    • 9Sit near the door or someplace else where they can easily get up and move around
    • 10Are uncomfortable in classrooms where they lack opportunities for hands-on experience
    • 11 Communicate by touching and appreciate physically expressed encouragement, such as a pat on the back
    • PATHETIC STORY ONLY 10 PERCENTOF SECONDARY STUDENTS LEARN BEST AUDITORILY, BUT, 80% OF INSTRUCTIONAL DELIVERY IS AUDITORY
    • exerciseWhat comes to your mind when you hear the word DOG ?
    • Some people see a picture of the animal
    • HEAR A BARK
    • while others visualize the animal dog
    • INTERESTINGLY
    • CONCLUSION Since not everyone remembers things the same way, it isimperative for a teacher to come up with as many “tricks” as they can to help their students. Songs, mnemonic devices, songs, diagrams, games, acronyms and analogies are some examples.
    • Remember, TeachingWill Last A Life Time!
    • ANDlife IS short…
    • it’s YOUR LIFE that’sat stake Make it worth YOUR WHILE.
    • time flies…
