Learning Styles: Strategies for Successful Teaching.
Cherney, Elaine E.
For those educators who work with college students either as teachers, advisors, or in learning centers, the construct of learning style can be a powerful tool in their interactions with students. Educators can sometimes tune in to students' styles by listening to the verbs the students use. An informal assessment of students' learning styles is to have them write one paragraph on how they learn best. Once the students have an understanding of their particular styles it is easier to help them understand how to utilize their learning strengths and strengthen their less dominant modalities. Once students understand style it becomes much easier to help them adjust and cope with style differences. (Contains a self-assessment instrument, a description of time management strategies for different learning styles, and four questions for teachers to ask themselves the next time they give their class an assignment.) Contains five references. (RS)
