Learning Styles: Quiet Revolution in American Secondary Schools.
Dunn, Rita; Griggs, Shirley A.
Case study observations and analyses of learning styles in U.S. secondary schools comprise the crux of this monograph. The text provides testimony to the accomplishments of schools actually integrating differentiated learning styles into their diverse educational programs and concomitant coursework. With the notion that learning style provides important insights into the ways individual students process information, this research documents the implementation of learning styles successfully in 12 schools. The schools are of many varieties: public and private (including parochial and nonsectarian); rural, suburban, and urban schools both large and small; an alternative program; and a university-affiliated laboratory school. In addition to the 12 case studies, learning styles are defined and effective leadership and management strategies facilitating learning styles' applications are diagnosed. A reference list of 8 pages and an annotated bibliography of 21 items are included. (JAM)
