- Under your answers for #1-13, add up how many of each letter answer you have and write:
A = ______ B = ______ C = ______Then circle the letter that has the largest #.Tell your teacher which letter (A, B, or C) you selected the most often when she asks you.
Teacher will record A, B, or C next to her student roster so she knows which learning style each student is. Students are more likely to be honest with their largest # of responses if they dont know what they mean yet.
Selecting A the most means:You are mainly an Visual (Seeing) Learner
Selecting B the most means:You are mainly a Auditory (Hearing) Learner
Selecting C the most means:You are mainly a Tactile (Doing) LearnerOn your page write: I am a ________ Learner.
Ask students: When people were reading off their letter, did everyone say the same letter? What does it mean that a lot of people said different letters? We all learn differently. Therefore, as your teacher I will be using a variety of strategies that will help people learn in different ways.
- Visual Learners Should: Auditory Learners Should:Tactile Learners Should: Sit near the front of the class Use flashcards to learn new words Try to visualize things you hear or things you read Write down key words, ideas, or instructions Color code things Draw pictures to help explain new conceptsBe sure to sit where you can hear Use flashcards to learn new words, but read them out loud Read stories, assignments, or directions out loud Study new material by reading it out loud Remember that you need to HEAR things, not just see things, in order to learn Participate in activities that involve touching, building, moving, or doing Its OK to walk around or tap your foot while reading or studying Trace words with your finger to learn spelling Its OK to tap a pencil, shake your leg, or hold on to something while learning
