How To Implement and Supervise a Learning Style Program.
Many people prefer to learn in ways that differ from the ways in which other people of the same class, grade, age, nationality, race, culture, or religion prefer to do. The ways in which people prefer to learn are their "learning style preferences." This handbook was designed for supervisors interested in implementing and guiding staff in the proven educational methods of learning styles. Chapter 1 presents an overview of learning styles and explains how they develop. Chapter 2 describes the first steps toward implementation: conduct an inventory of students' learning styles; introduce learning styles to the staff and parents; and supplement learning-style training. The third chapter offers suggestions for classroom techniques: connecting learning styles and students; assessing students; strengthening students' understanding of learning styles; and personalizing learning styles. Strategies for redesigning classrooms for personalized learning are offered in chapter 4. (Contains 76 references and 5 figures.) (LMI)
