Discovering Learning Preferences and Learning Differences in the Classroom.
Bargar, June R.; And Others
Understanding learning differences and how they function in the classroom is important to both students and teachers. The learning preferences described in this handbook are based on the concepts of psychological type developed by Carl Jung. Jung identified three sets of psychological processes, the areas of attitude (orientation), perception, and judgment (decision making). This handbook adds processes based on adaptation. From these processes, eight learning preferences are derived, and each is paired with a contrasting preference. The preferences are illustrated in a color wheel that opposes extraversion and introversion in the area of orientation, sensation and intuition in the area of perception, thinking and feeling as aspects of decision making, and judgement and perception as aspects of adaptation. The handbook contains an individual learning preferences checklist for teachers and students, a guide to its use, descriptions of the preferences, and student worksheets. To help improve instruction, the handbook describes some classroom and teaching strategies related to the preferences. Appendixes include: (1) the student learning preferences worksheet; (2) a class learning preference distribution; (3) a summary of learning processes and preferences; (4) a description of learning preference combinations; and (5) an annotated list of 14 sources to consult on psychological type and a 10-item reading list. (Contains three figures.) (SLD)
