Chapter 3

  1. 1. Basic Learning Styles and Principles<br />Must be fully prepared to reach a diverse group of students with a variety of:<br /><ul><li>Backgrounds
  2. 2. Experiences
  3. 3. Cultures
  4. 4. Personalities
  5. 5. Learning Styles</li></li></ul><li>The Role of the Educator<br /><ul><li>A educator is a facilitator.
  6. 6. A facilitator is a catalystfor learning.
  7. 7. Catalyst: an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.
  8. 8. As an educator, we want to create circumstances within which learning takes place at a faster rate.</li></li></ul><li>Learning Styles Defined<br />KEY: When a student has difficulty learning, it is most likely because they are processing the information outside of their natural learning style.<br /><ul><li>A learning style is a student’s favored, or preferred method of thinking, understanding, and processing information.
  9. 9. 75% of all educators today present material in a sequential, analytical manner, whereas as little as 10% of student learn effectively that way.
  10. 10. Must integrate better strategies!</li></ul>Activity<br />Directions<br />Read the following article.<br /><br />Explain how the “GLAD” program helps struggling students overcome their learning challenges.<br />
  11. 11. Learning Style Profiles<br /><ul><li>Bernice McCarthy’s 4MAT learning model identifies four learner types.</li></ul>What learning style are you?<br />Dynamic Learning/<br />Intuitive Learners<br />Imaginative Learning/ Interactive Learners<br />How?<br />Common Sense Learning/ Systematic Learners<br />Analytical<br />Learning/ Reader and Listener Learners<br />
  12. 12. Activity<br />Directions<br />Review page 54 in your Milady Course book.<br />Answer the following questions. Answer key is on the next page.<br />Options for answers:<br />Interactive/Imaginative Learners<br />Reader and Listener/Analytical Learners<br />Systematic / Common Sense Learners<br />Intuitive/ Dynamic Learners<br />What type learns by watching, listening and sharing ideas?<br />What type is excellent at remembering facts and details?<br />What type learns better by themselves?<br />What type learns best through trial and error?<br />What type learns best by reading and hearing new ideas?<br />What type likes doing and feeling?<br />What type likes to study in a group?<br />What type learns best when they connect to real life situations?<br />
  13. 13. Activity Answers<br />Options for answers:<br />Interactive/Imaginative Learners<br />Reader and Listener/Analytical Learners<br />Systematic / Common Sense Learners<br />Intuitive/ Dynamic Learners<br />What type learns by watching, listening and sharing ideas? A<br />What type is excellent at remembering facts and details? B<br />What type learns better by themselves? C<br />What type learns best through trial and error? D<br />What type learns best by reading and hearing new ideas? B<br />What type likes doing and feeling? D<br />What type likes to study in a group? A<br />What type learns best when they connect to real life situations? C<br />
  14. 14. <ul><li>Sensory learning styles help educators teach the students effectively.</li></ul>Auditory 25%<br />Kinesthetic 40%<br />Visual 35%<br />
  15. 15. Four Steps in Learning<br /><ul><li>Regardless of learning style, a student will likely learn new information in the following steps:</li></ul>Desire- Before we learn anything, we must want to learn.<br />Input and Environment- Must receive information in an environment that is conductive to learning.<br />Assimilation- Must process and understand the information.<br />Repetition- Must repeat or practice the theory or application until task has been mastered.<br />Activity<br />Directions<br />Think of when you first decided to go to school for Cosmetology and your experience in school. On a separate sheet of paper, explain how you went through each of the four steps. <br />
  16. 16. Multiple Intelligences<br /><ul><li>The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, outlines a theory regarding learning that encompasses a broad spectrum of learning profiles and steps in learning.
  17. 17. The theory addresses how we are smart vs. how smart we are.
  18. 18. There are two fundamental concepts:</li></ul>Intelligence is not fixed; humans have the ability to develop intellectual capacity.<br />Education is not unitary; there are many ways in which students can be smart.<br /><ul><li>In search for intelligence, three prerequisites must be met.</li></ul>It must require skills that enable an individual to resolve genuine problems.<br />It must require the ability to create an effective product.<br />It must have the potential for finding or creating problems.<br />

  21. 21. Activity<br />Directions<br />After reviewing the Multiple Intelligence Chart, rate yourself in each intelligence. Use a scale from 1-10 with 1 needing improvement, 5 average and 10 being your strongest intelligence. Also, write down tips you can use to help your studies in the Master Educator Program. <br />Verbal/Linguistic<br />Bodily/Kinesthetic<br />Logical/Mathematical<br />Visual/Spatial<br />Musical/Rhythmic<br />Interpersonal<br />Intrapersonal<br />Naturalist<br />Notes<br />
  22. 22. The Benefits and Importance of Identifying Learning Styles<br /><ul><li>Student Benefits</li></ul>Know how they learn and make smarter choices.<br />Identify a good work environment.<br />Target areas that need improvement.<br /><ul><li>Educator Benefits</li></ul>Develop better lesson plans.<br />Greater student success.<br />Give all students an equal opportunity to succeed.<br />
  23. 23. How to Identify Preferred Intelligence<br /><ul><li>Pose a problem and have the group go about resolving it. Observe how students approach it.
  24. 24. Ask students to build a model of something.
  25. 25. Have student fill out the questionnaire provided on Page 70 and 71 in your Milady Course Book.
  26. 26. Remind your students that they will manifest a mixture of intelligences, with some being more developed than others.</li></ul>Developing Intelligences<br /><ul><li>We do not have a “fixed” intelligence.
  27. 27. Most successful people have developed an intelligence area they were weak in.</li></li></ul><li>Combining Intelligences<br /><ul><li>Focus on 3-4 intelligences in every class we teach.
  28. 28. Should address all intelligences during the course of a week of study.</li>
