OUTLINE

  • ACTIVITIES

  • WRITING

  • LEARNING STYLES

  • EXAMPLE TASKS


Activity 1 organizing information
ACTIVITY 1ORGANIZING INFORMATION

  • Stand up, discuss and organize yourselves in three groups, according to the activity in your cards.

  • Explain the rationale for the organization.


Activity 2 generating ideas
ACTIVITY 2GENERATING IDEAS

  • In pairs, take turns speaking non-stop for three minutes each.

  • Partner A: “What do you know about perceptual learning styles?”

  • Partner B: “How can teachers apply knowledge about different learning styles to their teaching?”


Activity 3 organizing information
ACTIVITY 3ORGANIZING INFORMATION

  • Fill in the mind map with information generated in the previous activities.

  • Share your mind map with a partner and complete the information about learning styles


Writing activity
WRITING ACTIVITY

  • Write an article for your school bulletin board about how important it is that students’ different learning styles be catered to in class.


Pre writing activities and learning styles
PRE-WRITING ACTIVITIESAND LEARNING STYLES

  • What is the connection?

  • Pre-writing – why is it important?

  • Graph – writing process (Isabela’s presentation

  • Generating ideas and planning are the most neglected – which has effects on final result


Learning styles
LEARNING STYLES

  • “… an individual’s natural, habitual, and preferred ways of absorbing, processing, and retaining new information and skills.” (Kinsella, 1995, p. 171, in Christison, 2003)


Learning styles1
LEARNING STYLES

  • “How a person is likely to perceive and process information and experiences.”

    (Mc Carthy, 1980)


Learning styles2
LEARNING STYLES

  • “Cognitive, affective, and physiological traits that are relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with, and respond to the learning environment.”

    (Keefe, 1979, p. 4)


Key research findings
KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • ESL / EFL teachers’ teaching styles often reflect their own learning style

  • As cited in Leopold, 2010


Key research findings1
KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • Higher student achievement relates to a match between student learning styles and teacher teaching styles

  • As cited in Leopold, 2010


Key research findings2
KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • Although culture is not the sole determinant, it is one of the principal factors influencing learning styles

  • As cited in Leopold, 2010


Key research findings3
KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • More than 90% of the traditional college classroom is auditory

  • As cited in Leopold, 2010


Key research findings4
KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • Most ESL students strongly prefer kinesthetic learning

  • As cited in Leopold, 2010

LEARNING STYLES IN TESOL

Christison, 2003


Perceptual learning styles1
PERCEPTUAL LEARNING STYLES

  • “the perceptual perspective allows us to take into account aspects of several well-recognized learning-style theories by synthesizing their important characteristics into an approach that is based on behaviors and/or actions that can be easily perceived in a classroom situation (Sarasin, 1998).”


What is your learning style
WHAT IS YOUR LEARNING STYLE?

  • Read the sentences on the posters

  • Stand next to the poster with sentences that best describe your preferred learning style

  • Adapted from Barsch http://ww2.nscc.edu/gerth_d/AAA0000000/barsch_inventory.htm

  • The actual test involves choosing whether the sentences are seldom, often, or sometimes true


Visual learners
VISUAL LEARNERS

Visual learners have two sub-channels

  • Linguistic

  • Spatial


Visual learners1
VISUAL LEARNERS

visual-linguistic learners

  • learn through written language, such as reading and writing tasks

  • remember what has been written down, even if they do not read it more than once

  • like to write down directions

  • pay better attention to lectures if they watch them


Visual learners2
VISUAL LEARNERS

visual-spatial learners

  • usually have difficulty with the written language

  • do better with charts, demonstrations, videos, and other visual materials

  • visualize faces and places by using their imagination and seldom get lost in new surroundings.


Kinesthetic learners
KINESTHETIC LEARNERS

Kinesthetic learners two sub-channels:

  • kinesthetic (movement) and

  • tactile (touch)

  • tend to lose concentration if there is little or no external stimulation or movement


Kinesthetic learners1
KINESTHETIC LEARNERS

  • When listening to lectures, they may want to take notes for the sake of moving their hands.

  • When reading, they like to scan the material first, and then focus in on the details (get the big picture first).

  • They typically use color highlighters and take notes by drawing pictures, diagrams, or doodling.


Auditory learners
AUDITORY LEARNERS

  • often talk to themselves

  • may move their lips and read out loud.

  • may have difficulty with reading and writing tasks.

  • often do better talking to a colleague or a voice recorder and hearing what was said.



Activity 1 my weekend
Activity 1 – My weekend

  • Work in groups of six. Each person has a connector. Say the first sentence and use the connector in another sentence.

  • The next person repeats the sentences and adds one more, using his/her connector

  • The last participant should have a whole paragraph, that can be memorized by the group

    On my last vacation I went to China

    and I did many interesting things there.


Activity 2 hosting a world cup
Activity 2 – Hosting a world cup

  • Form a circle. The first participant gives one advantage to hosting a world cup and throws the ball.

  • The participant who gets the ball has to say one disadvantage to hosting a world cup and throw the ball.

  • Continue until all participants have given an advantage or disadvantage to the topic.


Activity 3 global warming
Activity 3 – Global Warming

  • Complete the tree with causes and consequences of global warming.

  • The trunk of the tree represents the problem. The roots represent the causes and the canopy represents the consequences.

  • Share your tree with a partner.


Sample activities
SAMPLE ACTIVITIES

  • Activity 1 – auditory – beginners

  • Activity 2 – kinesthetic - advanced

  • Activity 3 – visual - intermediate
