Marching to Different Drummers.
Guild, Pat Burke; Garger, Stephen
The individual differences that are labeled as learning styles, teaching styles, leadership styles, and psychological types are clustered together in this book in order to explore the importance of style in education. The book is divided into three parts. The first part defines style and provides some background concerning research on style. The second part describes six different applications of concepts of styles by major researchers. An application example is provided for each of the research models covered. The final section presents a way to organize thinking about styles, raises additional issues, and discusses implementation and staff development. The reader is encouraged to explore the book using his or her own style--the book attempts to address the differenct ways in which style can be understood by providing personal examples, research findings, practical applications, and philosophical implications. An annotated bibliography of works on style and the analysis of style is included along with a longer list of references. (PGD)
