Styles of Thinking as a Basis of Differentiated Instruction
Sternberg, Robert J.; Zhang, Li-fang
Theory Into Practice, v44 n3 p245-253 2005
We consider how to differentiate instruction using a theory of thinking styles as a basis for differentiation. The article opens with a consideration of why styles are important. Then it considers some general characteristics of styles, presents the theory of mental self-government, considers issues of measurement, and presents data supporting the theory. Next, it discusses application of the theory in the classroom. Finally, it draws conclusions.
