Auditory Learners

Auditory Learners

Only 10% of learners are auditory, but you will know who your auditory learners are as they need to talk to process/understand information. It is important to build in some discussion time to your class organization or you auditory learners will begin to talk over you. Auditory learners are not interested in the visual details. They are interested in the story. They will often go to great lengths to put the important parts of a story in, but this will be done in a different way than the visual learners. An example is if an auditory learner wishes to have a crowd of people watching something, they may just draw 100 circles. It takes time to draw that many circles, but the faces may not be important to the auditory learner so they will be left out. Auditory learners are inspired by stories with rich details. When the princess wears ‘a ruby red ring’ it will definitely appear in their drawings.

A nice activity for auditory learners might be developing a graphic novel or cartoon strip – any artwork that uses a story.
