Utilizing Mini-Training Sessions To Assist a Teacher in the Use of a Variety of Activities and Strategies To Address the Learning Styles and Modalities of Students in the Second-Grade Class.
Stallings, Viola P.
This practicum was designed to assist the teacher in addressing the learning styles and modalities of students in a second-grade classroom. A learning style inventory was administered to the students, and two learning style inventories were administered to the teacher. Mini-training sessions were then developed on addressing learning styles by the researcher. The sessions were held with the teacher after school; class observation visits were held on the same days. Over the course of the training, the teacher began to address more of the students' learning styles and learning modalities. The improvement of the students, on their writing samples and in their math skills, were greater than anticipated. Changes in the teacher's technology attitudes were positive, and changes in students' attitudes, overall, were as predicted. (Nine appendices include copies of consent letters, samples of the technology attitude assessment surveys, hardware and software assessment data sheets, and samples of the newsletters sent to parents.) Contains 39 references. (AA)
