Method 1: Use Multiple Modalities

Learners all have different learning styles. Don't points of entry by using different ways of showing

Visual/ Spatial
a.      graphic organizers
b.      mind maps
c.      concept webs

Tips you can give to your students who are visual/spatial learners:
  • have a clear view of your teachers when they are speaking so you can see their body language and facial expression
  • use color to highlight important points in text
  • take notes or ask your teacher to provide handouts
  • illustrate your ideas as a picture or brainstorming bubble before writing them down
  • use multi-media (e.g. computers, videos, and filmstrips)
  • study in a quiet place away from verbal disturbances
  • visualize information as a picture to aid memorization

d.      hands on activities (manipulatives)

Tips you can give to your students who are kinesthetic/tactile learners:
  • take frequent study breaks
  • move around to learn new things (e.g. read while on an exercise bike, mold a piece of clay to learn a new concept)
  • work at a standing position
  • chew gum while studying
  • use bright colors to highlight reading material
  • dress up your work space with posters
  • if you wish, listen to music while you study
  • skim through reading material to get a rough idea what it is about before settling down to read it in detail.

only focus on one but make sure to provide many
or practicing new information.
