1-min Eltt Guide – How Can You Adapt Your Teaching To Different Learning Styles?

To adapt my teaching to my students’ different learning styles, I should do some procedures

For visual learners, I should:

  • Utilize visual materials such as pictures, charts, maps, graphs, etc.
  • Use body language and facial expressions.
  • Use colors to highlight important points in a text.
  • Encourage taking notes and provide handouts.
  • Use an illustration for main ideas or brainstorming bubbles before writing.
  • Write a story and illustrate it.
  • Use multi-media (e.g. computers, videos, and filmstrips)
  • Teach in a quiet place away from verbal disturbances.
  • Visualize information as a picture to aid memorization.

For auditory learners, I should:

  • Run class discussions/debates.
  • Make speeches and presentations.
  • Read text out aloud.
  • Use music to aid memorization
  • Discuss my ideas verbally.
  • Use dictation tasks.
  • Use verbal analogies, and story telling to demonstrate my points.

For tactile/Kinesthetic learners, I should:

  • Give frequent study breaks.
  • Encourage moving around when learning new things.
  • Use bright colors to highlight the reading material.
  • Dress up my workspace with posters.
  • Encourage listening to music while learning.
  • Use the “Total Physical Response” teaching approach.
