Understanding the Relationship between Latino Students' Preferred Learning Styles and Their Language Spoken at Home
Maldonado Torres, Sonia Enid
Journal of Latinos and Education, v15 n3 p244-252 2016
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between Latino students' learning styles and their language spoken at home. Results of the study indicated that students who spoke Spanish at home had higher means in the Active Experimentation modality of learning (M = 31.38, SD = 5.70) than students who spoke English (M = 28.08, SD = 5.36) or both languages (M = 30.79, SD = 5.93) at home. Students in all 3 groups--students who spoke Spanish, English, and both languages at home--had similar means and standard deviations in the Reflective Observation modality of learning.
