Learning Style Inventory

Your Learning Style is the way you naturally think and process information.  We are all different in how we learn and studying for a test without using strategies aligned with your learning style can be compared to going to battle with no armor or weapon.  Knowing, and using, your Learning Styles and the Practical Learning Strategies, will give you a great advantage.  

As a 7th grader you will complete this activity in class, but here it is as a reference if you ever need it.
