PRESENTATION

This presentation supports the Learning Style Profile of students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPS). Learning Profiles represent the sum total of strengths and weaknesses that children possess. The more a student knows about themselves, the better learners they will be.
The purpose of the What Kind Of Learner Are You Survey is to increase the student’s knowledge of their Learning Style. It will help them decide which way is best and most comfortable for them to learn and study. I often find students don’t know how to take notes, study, and prepare for a test. I believe this presentation will help them improve in all of these areas and become more effective learners.
I will individually present this to 10 students in my caseload and take data. I used Clip Art and information I learned from two books I read about Learning Styles (listed in the Independent Study) to create these forms. My supervisor suggested I present this to the special education teachers in the building at a future meeting and/or in service.

The more you know about your learning style, the better learner you will be:

If you have mostly a’s, you favor a visual learning style.
The visual learner prefers to see information. You may have strong spatial skills and are able to easily visualize shapes and sizes. Writing is a preference, and writing information gives visual learners the opportunity to see how concepts fit together. Many of these students are very neat because they are aware of how things look. Movies, field trips, maps, graphs, charts, and picture may enhance the interest of a visual learner.

If you have mostly b’s, you favor auditory learning style.
The auditory learner prefers to hear information. You enjoy listening to others. You may have strong language skills and a good vocabulary. Many of these students have musical talents as tone, pitch, rhythm, and rhyme are appealing. Group work, team projects, and talking through material may enhance the interest of an auditory learner.

If you have mostly c’s, you favor kinesthetic learning style.
The kinesthetic learner prefers to learn by touch and movement. You may need to do something in order to learn it, such as assembling things, taking things apart, working with textured materials, and manipulating objects. Many of these students are well coordinated, have athletic ability, and generally reinforce their learning through a sense of touch. Role play, giving live demonstrations, providing movement, and allowing for doodling & drawing may enhance the interest of kinesthetic learner.
