  • Is good at spelling but forgets names
  • Needs quiet study time
  • Has to think awhile before understanding lecture
  • Is good at spelling

  • work at a standing position
  • chew gum while studying

  • dress up your work space with posters
  • skim through reading material to get a rough idea what it is about before settling down to read it in detail.
  • Role playing
  • Studying with others
  • Using memory games
  • Using flash cards to memorize

Effects of Learning Style Awareness

Nelson and colleagues (1993) examined the effects

of a learning style intervention with more than 1,000 college students.

This investigation revealed significantly higher grade-point-averages

and improved attitudes for students made aware of their

learning style preferences and then provided

with suggestions for accommodating those

preferences when studying and completing assignments. The findings

of Cook (1989) and Nelson et al. (1993)were corroborated by

Lenehan et al. (1994) who also reported significant increases in

grade-point-averages and improved attitudes for students who

had been provided homework/study prescriptions based on

their individual learning style preferences.


Executive function
  • The neuropsychological concept referring to the high-level cognitive processes required to plan and direct activities, including task initiation and follow-through, working memory, sustained attention, performance monitoring, inhibition of impulses, and goal-directed persistence.
Executive Skills: Definitions

•Response Inhibition: The ability to think before you act – to evaluate a situation and how our behavior might impact it.

•Working Memory: The ability to hold information in memory while performing complex tasks.

•Emotional Control: The ability to manage emotions in order to achieve goals, complete tasks, or control and direct behavior.

Executive Skills: Definitions

•Sustained Attention: The capacity to maintain attention to a situation or task in spite of distractibility, fatigue, or boredom.

•Task Initiation: The ability to begin projects without undue procrastination, in an efficient or timely fashion.

•Planning/Prioritization: The ability to create a roadmap to reach a goal or to complete a task. It also involves being able to make decisions about what’s important to focus on and what’s not important.

•Organization: The ability to create and maintain systems to keep track of information or materials.

Executive Skills: Definitions

•Time Management: The capacity to estimate how much time one has, how to allocate it, and how to stay within time limits and deadlines. It also involves a sense that time is important.

•Flexibility: The ability to revise plans in the face of obstacles, setbacks, new information or mistakes. It relates to an adaptability to changing conditions.

•Goal-directed persistence: The capacity to have a goal, follow through to the completion of the goal, and not be put off by or distracted by competing interests.

•Metacognition: The ability to stand back and take a birds-eye view of oneself in a situation. It is an ability to observe how you problem solve. It also includes self-monitoring and self-evaluative skills (e.g., asking yourself, “How am I doing? or How did I do?”).


Goal Setting

Set goals that are specific, flexible, realistic and achievable

Understand step-by-step process for reaching goals



+I can complete my Science

project by Friday if I do 3 steps each

night (record each step in planner)

+I will make an appointment to see

math teacher once a week until I

bring my grade up to a B

+If I get my homework done before

dinner, I can...

+I will make a “to-do” list in my

planner every evening

“Nobody ever plans to fail; but they do fail to plan.”
