Learning Style Theory and Practice.
Keefe, James W.
This monograph builds upon rapid developments in the field of learning styles during the past few years, providing useful information about the theory, research, instrumentation, and practice of learning style. The first section presents an overview of learning style and addresses the school learning process, learning style concept, cognitive styles, affective styles, and physiological styles. Assessing student learning style is the topic of the second section, which addresses cognitive, affective, and physiological style elements, and comprehensive instruments for assessing these styles. Section 3 covers the connection between brain hemisphere and learning style, including discussion regarding hemispheric differences, sequential and simultaneous processing, hemispheric mythology, and whole brain education. Section 4 discusses applications of learning style through consideration of views of style, personalized education, significance of the style concept, schoolwide implementation, and classroom applications. References are included. (CB)
