Johnston, Christine A.
This book describes a comprehensive strategy for getting to know students learning behaviors and includes everything from theoretical constructs to projects for classroom use. Glosses direct the reader to further information on subjects discussed in the book: cognitive science, brain science, learning styles, multiple intelligences, and self-regulated learning. Practical suggestions for teacher use include the Learning Combination Inventory, scoring key, and interpretation guide. The book provides a central focus and starting point for introducing effective learner-centered instructional practices, including how to group students for maximal effect for cooperative learning, how to apply interactive learning in all subject areas, and how to use the Interactive Learning Model to facilitate integrated curriculum-instruction. (Contains figures; notes; an appendix with a survey form for students to complete which will help to describe the ways they learn; and approximately 100 references.) (MAH)
