Learning styles

Learning Styles

  • Visual

    • Learn through seeing

    • Needs visuals, graphics, pictures, readings

  • Auditory

    • Learn through listening

    • Craves discussions, debates,

  • Tactile/Kinesthetic

    • Needs physical and active activities


How can we identify learning styles

How can we identify learning styles?

  • First, know your students! Ask them how they perceive themselves and what they prefer.

  • Surveys, questionnaires and quizzes

    Signs of Visual Learners:

    • Drawings, avid note-takers, ask for words on board

      Signs of Auditory Learners:

    • Ask for repeated instructions, like to converse, enjoy audio clips

      Signs of Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners:

    • Drumming, swaying, like to stand up, prefer movement, performances


Skill levels

Skill Levels

How do we differentiate in order to not only “teach to the middle”?

  • Lower levels (literacy, speaking skills, vocabulary)

    • Provide “amplified,” high-interest materials with explicitly taught vocabulary and model heavily

  • Intermediate

    • Pace appropriately where students are simultaneously comprehending as well as being challenged

  • Higher Levels

    • Adequately pushed and stimulated so as not to lose their engagement
