What the Expert Says:

Better than any answer I could give you, here is the information of the expert on this topic. Dr. Mel Levine, MD, "A Mind At A Time", He is the Founder of the " All Kinds OF Minds Institute" Located in North Calolina. This man has devoted his life to explaining and assisting with different learning styles and how we can best serve our childrens learning styles. I advise you to get the book at the Library or buy a copy for your own keeping and reference.

Learning challenges can be directly tied to the interaction between the learner and the environment. If a teacher's instructional style does not match her student's learning style than there is a mismatch and learning is NOT optimal. Most teachers’ instructional style is their learning style. If teachers understand this, instruction is improved ... if students understand their learning style ... they can think about their thinking and improve their academic performance. I agree - read Dr. Levine's book!
