Learning Style. A Review of the Literature.
Semple, Edward E., Jr.
This review of literature on the topic of learning style opens with a history of the development of theories on information processing habits which represent the learner's typical modes of perceiving, thinking, remembering, and problem solving. A discussion is included on writings about the sense modalities used in learning--visual, aural, kinesthetic, and tactual. Research writings are reviewed on the subjects of: (1) learning style stability; (2) learning style and teaching style; (3) learning style and reading and math achievement; (4) age and sex in relation to learning style; (5) learning style and self-concept; (6) learning style of gifted students and slow learners; and (7) learning style and sociometric choices. A bibliography of the 128 references cited in the review is included. (JD)
