Accommodating different learning styles

A learning style can best be defined as the most consistent way in which a student prefers to learn new concepts.A student's style is determined by genetic factors, previous learning experiences, and her culture and society.The problems develop when teachers and students don’t match.

They learn best when they can observe, and pictures, diagrams, films and displays are effective for them.

For example, a student who is visual may also be a very social and verbal learner and prefers to learn especially difficult topics using their primary skills.

Understanding how your student learns is perhaps one of the most important tasks a parent can undergo while homeschooling.

I accommodate students with different learning styles in my classroom by using different modalities, which include auditory, visual, and tactile components.

Each teaching unit is a composite of lecture, written work, large and small group discussion, audiovisual, and laboratory activities.
