  • Learning Styles is one strategy to use for differentiated instruction. This presentation is based on the work of Myers-Briggs, Keirsey-Bates, and Carl Jung.
  • After reviewing this slide, ask participants to view the next four pictures and as they are looking at them, to think of the characteristics of each. Tell them that after they have viewed all four pictures, they will be asked to “choose” one picture that they seemed to identify with, based upon the characteristics they associated with each picture.
  • Show for about 15 seconds and move to next picture.

  • Show for about 15 seconds. Ask participants to think about all four pictures and then choose the one they “identified” with. If they didn’t identify with any, ask them to choose which one they like the best. Next, ask participants to go to the chart paper (hung on the wall) that displays the picture they chose. Once in groups, participants will chart the answers to these questions: What makes you feel in-esteem or high? What makes you feel out of esteem or low? Give participants about five minutes to discuss and chart their answers. Ask that they try to come to a consensus in the group. When they are done charting, each group will chose someone to share out the group’s chart, and the rest of the group will return to their seats. Each group will share out. The goal will be for everyone to see the characteristics and commonalities among the people in each group, and the differences in characteristics and commonalities among the different picture groups. In most cases, the picture that a person chooses ends up representing that person’s learning style. After all groups have shared out and discussion is over, continue on with the next slide.
  • Refer to handout “Identify Type Preference”. Ask participants to review it and check off the characteristics they feel address them. The quadrant with the most checks is most likely their learning style.
  • Example questions: ST: WHAT is the correct way to do this? NT: WHY does is have to be done this way? NF: WHAT IF we tried doing it this way? SF: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME to do this?

    2. 2. Brain research confirms what experienced teachers have always known:• No two children are alike• No two children learn in the identical way• An enriched environment for one student is not necessarily enriched for another• In the classroom we should teach children to think for themselves 2 Marian Diamond
    3. 3. Why should I care about learning styles?• The way a child learns affects his/her entire personality and development.• Understanding learning styles will help teachers and students to better communicate.• Understanding learning styles will help teachers to differentiate instruction. 3
    4. 4. What is a learning style?• A learning style is… – a way to take in and process information – a preference that gets stronger the more it is used – the way the mind operates – the way we learn! 4

    15. 15. In A Nutshell…• No one learning style is better than another.• We all have characteristics of each learning style; some characteristics are just stronger than others.• Learning about each style will help us to better understand and communicate with our students.• Knowing about each learning style will help teachers to better understand how students learn and how to differentiate 15
