I teach Science and Nutrition at a community college and master’s degree level. I have students that come from all walks of life and have different learning styles based on their life experiences. There is one thing that is the same about all my students and that is they want to do well, learn and get a good grade out of the class.
My challenge is to find a teaching style that is able to reach my students no matter what their learning style, so they can understand the science and nutrition.
This can be a real challenge since people have a variety of learning styles. Some people are visual learners, others auditory learners, while others are kinesthetic learners.
I often find that when students are first introduced to new material or concepts they can become overwhelmed or frustrated with incorporating these new concepts into their minds.
As we start a new school year and we think about how to make our students successful we have to consider their learning strengths and weaknesses. Your students might be your children, or maybe you yourself might be going back to school.
Today I wanted to shine the light on a special learning style which is more commonly known as a learning disorder, dyslexia. I call it a learning style because people who have it find unusual ways to process information.
Many people might not even realize they have this challenge and need to use different methods to learn. That is what happened to me.
