Every person on this planet is a bit different in how they think and communicate. Learning styles are just a way to say which methods best agree with you for taken in information. Academics have commonly shifted their thinking on learning styles by classifying four then seven. The underlying truth is that not everybody learns best using the same technique. Not everyone learns best with flashcards or by taking notes. People that best take in information best with their eyes through observation are referred to as visual learners. This style of learner accelerates with pictures and diagrams. These are your students that are doodling on their pads all the time, as it helps them think. There are many people that learn best by hearing something. These are called auditory learners. I can attest to this my college roommate would put her head down (as if she were sleeping) on desk and just listen in class. She graduated college with honors. There are people that best take in information by touching and doing. These learners are called kinesthetic learners. They tend to be good athletes and do not have the best handwriting. There are so many different ways to take information. Wouldn’t it be best to determine what works best for you or your students? This would help you learn things at an accelerated rate. Once the students have completed the survey, you'll be able to better tailor your lesson plans to accommodate their individual learning styles.
Human beings differ from one another in a multitude of ways. Just as two people may have different eye colors or different body types, each person has his or her own individual learning style. This short survey is designed to assess your individual learning style combination enabling you to learn and study more effectively. For accuracy's sake, we'll go into specifics of the theory behind learning styles after you've completed the survey. It is best to keep preconceived notions about your learning style out of your mind for the time being. For the best results, mark you answers honestly and intuitively. This series of inventory sheets can be used to help students identify the traits that they share on average day. The checklist with walkthrough through a number of different ways to assess which methods of learning agree most with either their habits or what they personally feel comfortable with. As you scroll down you will come across an interpretation area that helps you make sense of it all. Hopefully through this exercise you we be able to communicate to students some solid study habits that would be best agree with their own approach to learning.
