Learning Styles is full of practical, helpful, and eye-opening information about the different ways kids perceive information and then use that knowledge, as well as how their behavior is often tied to their particular learning style. When we understand learning styles—imaginative, analytic, common sense, and dynamic—and adjust our teaching or parenting to those styles, we begin reaching everyone God gives us to teach.

A style is any pattern we see in a person's way of accomplishing a particular type of task. The "task" of interest in the present context is education-learning and remembering in school and transferring what is learned to the world outside of school. Teachers are expressing some sort of awareness of style when they observe a particular action taken by a particular student and then say something like: "This doesn't surprise me! That's just the way he is. " Observation of a single action cannot reveal a style. One's impres sion of a person's style is abstracted from multiple experiences of the person under similar circumstances. In education, if we understand the styles of individual students, we can often anticipate their perceptions and subsequent behaviors, anticipate their misunderstandings, take ad vantage of their strengths, and avoid (or correct) their weaknesses. These are some of the goals of the present text. In the first chapter, I present an overview of the terminology and research methods used by various authors of the text. Although they differ a bit with regard to meanings ascribed to certain terms or with regard to conclusions drawn from certain types of data, there is none theless considerable agreement, especially when one realizes that they represent three different continents and five different nationalities.

'Tackles an area of the curriculum many teachers lack confidence in.' 'Lots of good starting points'. 'Spans a lot of material and is strong on diverse learning styles.' 'Clear explanation and good visual layour, very innovative in approach.' - Judging Panel for NASEN/TES Book Award 'The book is rich in lively teaching suggestions and in insights into the impact of different forms of explanation' - Debate '[C]arries us away from narrow views of ability and special needs and into the consideration of difference. The author takes us through lively discussions of many aspects of mathematics learning. Each section offers learning and teaching ideas involving visual and kinaesthetic approaches. The book is a compendium of sound ideas rather than a collection of startlingly new approaches. But throughout it has the great strength of being exceptionally clear in its arguments, descriptions and drawings. The design is generally helpful with plenty of illustrations, as befits the book's message. There are handy pages of photocopiable resources. This is a lively and often passionate account of ways of ensuring that multi-sensory approaches infect mathematics learning. As the author says, "pictures in the mind can help all pupils". We might add, "They help all teachers too"' - TES Extra for Special Needs 'If you have found pupils struggling to understand some aspects of mathematics at any age then this book is for you. It is a very readable book that would interest all those who work in classrooms, whether as a teacher or support worker with all ages and abilities, for those who work with older pupils as it gives possible approaches to use with those for whom basic skills are weak or have difficulty in understanding some of the concepts required of GCSE examinations' - Alison Parish, Second in Mathematics Department, Stowmarket High School, Suffolk Read the full review as posted on the Association of Teachers of Mathematics website! 'It is a highly practical book. One strength is the way that it develops a topic from the very basics through to the harder concepts. There are a large number of activities that are 'ready to run' but these really are just a starting point for teachers to begin thinking about teaching topics in a different way, and from these teachers will be able to develop their own approach. Although this book is focusing on pupils who are visual and kinaesthetic learners, the great majority of learners adopt a mixture of learning styles, so this approach will benefit the entire class. Worth a read!' - Maths Coordinator's File 'This excellent and very informative teaching resource is about teaching mathematics to pupils who have learning differences. [It] is very practical and easy to read. A really nice feature is the inclusion of photocopiable resource sheets allowing readers to try out easily the ideas suggested in the book. This resource is highly recommended and will be very suitable for maths teachers in primary and secondary schools, SENCOs and teaching assistants' - British Journal of Special Education 'This book is about making mathematics visible and tangible -- not something that just lies flat on the page. Dipping into it will provide instantly usable suggestions across a variety of topics at different levels: from early number concepts through to fractions and ratios, algebra, aspects of geometry (including angles and circles), and data handling. When you get a chance to read it more thoroughly you will find arguments for using these approaches, consideration of some of the pitfalls to avoid, and inspiration to develop different ways of helping students to achieve deep and connected understandings. For any teacher who wants to provide students with opportunities for visual and kinaesthetic learning in mathematics' - The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Inc. 'A very good book, offering teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants guidelines, strategies and practical activities to access the thought processes of pupils with different learning styles. It has an easy-to-read format giving suggestions, rather than dictat, on the use of "models to think" and is a unique document for those who have input into the furthering of the teaching and learning of mathematics' - Mathematics in School How can you make maths exciting and meaningful for all your pupils? Some pupils find even basic concepts in mathematics difficult to grasp and it can be a challenge to make lessons accessible to all. This book offers practising teachers a range of approaches to making maths clear for struggling students. It looks at the different ways in which maths can be taught so that pupils with different learning styles can be stimulated. Maths is visible and tangible - not something that just lies flat on the page. Included are: - ideas to be used in lessons - suggestions for exciting, visual ways to teach basic concepts - lots of practical advice and guidance. The book shows teachers how to unlock mathematics for all their learners, and it encourages the use of a variety of methods to teach the subject. It provides a valuable resource for maths teachers in both primary and secondary schools, for SENCOs and teaching assistants, and for those delivering initial teacher training or inservice courses. Tandi Clausen-May is an educational researcher responsible for the development of a range of mathematics curriculum and assessment materials. She delivers popular workshops on teaching mathematics around the United Kingdom. She also writes regular articles on mathematics teaching for educational journals and newspapers.

Whilst most teachers are skilled in providing opportunities for the progression of children’s learning, it is often without fully understanding the theory behind it. With greater insight into what is currently known about the processes of learning and about individual learning preferences, teachers are better equipped to provide effective experiences and situations which are more likely to lead to lasting attainment. Now fully updated, Ways of Learning seeks to provide an understanding of the ways in which learning takes place, which teachers can make use of in their planning and teaching, including: An overview of learning Behaviourism and the beginning of theory Cognitive and constructivist learning Multiple intelligences Learning styles Difficulties with learning The influence of neuro-psychology Relating theory to practice The third edition of this book includes developments in areas covered in the first and second editions, as well as expanding on certain topics to bring about a wider perspective; most noticeably a newly updated and fully expanded chapter on the influence of neuro-educational research. The book also reflects changes in government policy and is closely related to new developments in practice. Written for trainee teachers, serving teachers, and others interested in learning for various reasons, Ways of Learning serves as a valuable introduction for students setting out on higher degree work who are in need of an introduction to the topic.

This book contributes to the body of knowledge concerning individual learner differences by addressing the issue of learning styles in developing a second language. It comprises five chapters. The notion of style, together with its place among other individual differences and its relation to learning strategies, is presented in Chapter 1. The reasons for researching styles are also delineated in this chapter. Chapter 2 describes simple (one-dimensional) models of learning styles, contrary to Chapter 3, in which two-dimensional (compound) models are presented. Multi-dimensional (complex) models of learning styles are the focus of Chapter 4. Each model discussed in Chapters 2 through 4 is accompanied by an outline of its significance to second language educators, as demonstrated in earlier studies. The final, fifth chapter is devoted to the discussion of the practical exploitation of the learning style awareness in second language education. The options suggested include accommodating learners’ styles, stretching them (by exposing the students to the less familiar and less preferred options), and mixtures of both approaches. The book will be of interest to applied linguists, psycholinguists and language teaching practitioners, as well as tertiary level students interested in finding out the ways in which learning styles account for linguistic achievement.
