Addressing the Three Types of Learning Styles To Enhance the Understanding of Second Grade Math Concepts.
Wojcik, Patricia A.
In this practicum students' (n=27) learning styles were used to develop teaching lessons and strategies that would improve mathematics learning in a second grade classroom. Each child's learning style was determined through the Swassing-Barbe Modality Index (SBMI). Pretests for mathematics concepts were given. Each concept was then taught incorporating each of the learning styles. Posttests indicated an increased level of understanding and achievement by the target group. Daily logs and records indicated an improvement in work habits and attitudes. It was determined that testing learning style preferences and teaching to these preferences can result in an increase of learning and achievement. Included in this study are the purpose, research and solution strategy, method, results, and recommendations. Appended are a sample of daily records, copies of pretests and posttests, lesson plans, and a sample of a SBMI record sheet. (Author/KR)
