Write a 500-750 word essay depicting a self-analysis of your personal learning styles and intelligences. How does this apply to K-12 students? Why is it important to recognize these characteristics in yourself, and others?
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines. An abstract is not required.
Knowledge of one's personal learning styles is helpful in several ways.
1. The learner can adapt study habits that facilitate mastery of content.
2. Communicating one's learning style to an instruct can help him/her modify instruction to be most meaningful, i.e., notes and charts for the visual learner more paired verbal activities for the auditory learner, developing a hands=on activity for the kinesthetic learners.
3. Be sure to address that instructor self-awareness is key because we tend to teach the way we learn, which is great if I have a class of highly visual learners (like me) and very frustrating if I do not adapt to a class of primarily auditory or kinesthetic learners.
