Learning Styles and Sensory Preferences

Learning Styles and Sensory Preferences

* Be careful not to fall into the trap of thinking people who learn like you are smarter! Realize that there are amazing people who are very different from us. We need all types of teachers and as teachers we need to plan for the kids who learn differently from us. It also makes sense to let students work in the style they like (the learning style that is within their comfort zone) because that is sometimes a more satisfying experience for them.

* More information on these learning styles can be found in Dunn & Dunn, 1967 and Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
