Developing and Implementing an Inservice Workshop Series for Middle School Educators in Learning/Teaching Styles and Multiple Intelligences.
Wallin, Penny K.
The purpose of this practicum was to increase teachers' awareness of various learning styles and multiple intelligences in middle school classrooms by analyzing their own styles and applying that knowledge to their teaching styles and strategies. Six workshops designed to introduce, assess, and offer tangible classroom strategies in learning/teaching styles and multiple intelligences were held during the implementation phase of this practicum. Subsequently, the information utilized by staff from the workshops was tallied through observation data, lesson plans, pre- and posttest surveys, and an interdisciplinary unit checklist. Outcomes of the practicum were positive--all four objectives were reached successfully. The heightened awareness and utilization of diversity in styles of teaching, ways of learning, strategies used in the classroom, and kinds of intelligences have yielded potential long-term effects for the benefit of students and educators. Six appendixes include: (1) Daily Lesson Plans; (2) Learning/Teaching Styles Checklist; (3) Teacher Talk Time/Strategies Tally Sheet; (4) Evaluation Checklist; (5) Post Observation: Elements of Learning/Teaching Styles; and (6) Post Workshops/Classroom Experience Poll.
