I’ve always been aware that people absorb and process information in different ways and have found it fascinating. But the concept of learning styles was really brought home to me when my son started school a few years ago. His teacher told me that he was very bright but that he just wouldn’t stop talking. My son absorbs information through hearing but he processes information by speaking—a lot. I have on my hands an auditory learner. And I’ve discovered what a difference a good teacher who takes learning styles into account can make in a classroom!
Auditory, verbal or kinesthetic—what is your child’s learning style? Understanding the way your child takes in new information could make the difference between your child surviving and thriving in the classroom. To read more about this, check out some of KRL’s great books on learning styles and multiple intelligences and see for yourself what a good teacher and a bit more knowledge can do!
