Student Learning Styles and Brain Behavior: Programs, Instrumentation, Research.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
Cosponsored by St. John's University (New York) and the Learning Styles Network of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the conference was designed to bring together leading figures in the fields of student learning styles and brain behavior research. Thirty-two papers from the conference are collected in this volume, divided into four sections. Part 1 presents eight papers reporting on attempts to implement learning styles analysis and diagnostic-prescriptive education in schools and classrooms. Among the topics covered are cognitive style mapping, tactual learners, and foreign language learning. Part 2 comprises 16 papers on student learning style assessment models, or instrumentation, and related research. Included are discussions of the group embedded figures test, cognitive profiles, learning style scales, personality structures, reading styles, and learning styles at kindergarten and university as well as secondary school levels. The seven papers in part 3 explore developments in brain behavior research and applications, including the whole brain, the left hemisphere, and nonverbal learning styles. The single article in part 4 suggests some next steps. Three appendices provide the NASSP student learning styles model, an annotated bibliography of selected learning styles instrumentation, and information about the NASSP Learning Styles Network.
