For homework, they may elect to write out their objectives or cross-reference the objectives with the notes.

This is a more efficient approach for those students who learn better by listening than by writing.

It is highly encouraged to incorporate teaching methods that will benefit each type of learner.

Instead of just orally presenting use role play, audience participation and even music to convey information.

I generally use activities, which involve all of the students one way or another. There is some flexibility built into participation.

A student's style is determined by genetic factors, previous learning experiences, and her culture and society.We’ve broken each learning style down into: Auditory learning is a learning style in which a person learns through listening.Auditory learners need to hear what is being said in order to understand and may have difficulty with written instructions.You may also be wondering why some teachers were “better” teachers than others or why you liked a certain subject over another. Educational science has studied these questions for years and has determined that when some individuals struggle with learning it may be entirely a question of how they are being taught.Your student will most likely not possess one style exclusively but you may be able to see patterns in their learning preferences.
