In order to ensure that a specific curriculum is reaching students at a core level, it is imperative that they have the ability to relate to the material as much as possible. One of the best ways to do this is by finding programs to cater to their specific learning styles. Many students are visual or spatial learners that do best with visual prompts that they can see and handle. Others are better at learning things in an auditory manner through music and other audio avenues.
- Research shows that there are many different approaches to how a student grows and learns, depending on the individual.
- Learning styles can be categorized into visual, auditory, verbal, or even logical for those who prefer to use sound or logic.
- Other key learning styles include physical for those who enjoy movement, social for those who enjoy interaction with others, or solitary for those who prefer to be alone.
“Learning in groups is common enough in schools, but there are many who feel that such an approach delivers great results for some, while others let their friends do the work, or opt out because they lack the personal desire to contribute.”
