Teaching Students About Their Learning Styles

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

As teachers (and tutors) we've been trained to recognize and differentiate according to student needs, including their individual learning styles. But how important is it for our students to understand their learning styles? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this one, so please, sound off in the comments below.

Here's an interactive lesson you can use with your kiddos. They will take a self assessment and then learn about their strongest learning styles. This should prove to be an invaluable tool in your teaching/tutoring repertoire!

Once you AND your students have a good understanding of their learning styles, you can tailor your lessons to meet their needs. Here are a few links I've found that might help you design lessons to reach your students from their perspective!
