Differentiation through Learning-Style Responsive Strategies
Lauria, Jennifer
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v47 n1 p24-29 Fall 2010
Many children are in dire need of differentiated instruction to support their unique learning needs. Differentiated instruction seeks to maximize each student's growth by recognizing that students have different ways of learning, different interests, different ways of responding to instruction, and preferred ways of learning or expressing themselves. Learners would benefit from being taught to use individualized learning-style homework and study strategies to help them succeed. With homework and study strategies differentiated to meet individual learning styles, elementary and middle school students are empowered to teach themselves. In this article, the author describes the learning-style model and discusses the advantages of diverse instructional strategies based on the learning-style preferences of students of all ages. She offers some steps for practitioners interested in exploring methods of helping students to discover their individual learning-style strengths and preferences. (Contains 3 figures.)
