Course Description

Does it seem like some of your students just "get it" with very little help from you while others never seem to, even after a lot of one-on-one coaching? If so, it could be that you are not speaking their learning language. Every person brings their own learning style to the classroom, even young children. By learning about your own learning style and the learning styles of others, you will discover ways to help all of your students learn better.

Course Outline

Lesson 1: Multiple Intelligences

An introduction to Gardner's Multiple Intelligences and how to use this knowledge to better reach students.

Lesson 2: Learning Styles

Explore different learning styles and identify your own. Discover how learning style theories are used to teach students.

Lesson 3: Connecting the Models

The Multiple Intelligences approach relates to what students are good at and what interests them. The Learning Styles approach relates to how students' brains work. These approaches help us understand how to present content to different students, along with what types of projects they may enjoy.

Lesson 4: Applying Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles to Instruction

Explore several approaches for adapting existing curriculum. This lesson advocates looking at what your lessons are already doing, then looking for ways to incorporate Learning Styles and Multiple Intelligence activities.

Lesson 5: Designing Assessments

All the teaching we do comes down to measuring how much students have learned. Is it fair to test recall by offering fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice or true/false questions? Take a look at the types of assessments preferred by students with different learning styles and create a plan that allows them to choose how to demonstrate what they have learned. 

Lesson 6: Teaching Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles to Students

Look at learning styles from the student point of view and learn how to let them in on the "secret" of how to learn better.
