Think about what kind of learner you are: visual, auditory, or kinesthetic.
Take a dot from your table and post it to the board under the Pre column for how you think you learn best. Red=Visual Green = Auditory Yellow=KinestheticMD says really fast, to frustrate group.
2Learning ObjectivesIdentify your particular learning style Understanding your particular learning style and how to best meet the needs of student with that learning style.Recognizing student behaviors in the learning environmentHow to provide opportunities for students to select and use the most effective learning style as they are working and learning.Before we get to teaching strategies that promote active student participation and engagement, we'll take a brief look at learning styles, another important aspect of learning that is useful to factor in to assignment and activity design. If everyone learned the same way, it would be easy to choose teaching strategies to optimize learning. How people learn, however, varies widely, as does individual preference for receiving and processing information. How does this influence teaching?

Your modality indicates what you need to be able to:ConcentrateLearnProcess File InformationBut, What are Learning Styles?Basically, your learning style is the method you require that best allows you to gather and use knowledge in a specific manner.
STUDENT OUTCOMES: You will learn more easily and with greater success once you have unlocked your learning style and discovered the best methods for helping you learn. You may be surprised to discover just how well you can flourish in the classroom, even in subjects that you previously found difficult!
Point out that this is what teachers would share with students.11Typically learn through what they are able to see with their own eyes. These students jockey for the positions at the front of the class, must have front row theater seats and love to be right up front for sporting events in order to obtain the best view.Visual LearnersEFFECTIVE STRATEGIESKnow your Student Learning StylesVISUAL LEARNERSStudent can useClear visual cuesSee the big picture cuesSee information on WBNotetaking / visual imagesComputer typingConcept mappingGenre / report processes

They tend to absorb information in a more efficient manner through sounds, music, discussions, teachings, etc. These individuals will be more likely to record lectures so that they can replay them at a later time for study purposes.Auditory LearnersKnow your Student Learning StylesTHE AUDITORY LEARNERStudent can useClear instructions & directionsOral Expressive Language Listening oral presentation / multimedia supportsPraiseSight word vocabularlyComputer programsCalculatorsReading aloud
