There are three main types of learning styles that educators need to remember when planning lessons in the classroom. The three main learning styles are auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners. All students in the classroom are different types of learners. It is critical that teachers incorporate all types of styles into their everyday lessons. One of the schools I worked in required the teachers to include what type of learning style their specific lessons were tailored to.

Some are more visual learners, while others learn better by listening, yet others will remember and record data easier through hands on experience such as creating projects. Therefore, this information should alert instructors that change is inevitable. Necessary modifications in the classroom must be made in order to accommodate everyone’s needs and prevent repetitive scenarios such as the one depicted above. Is Student learning influenced by differentiated instruction? Every teacher has used diverse methods to instruct their students at one time or another; they have allowed extra time to complete work, given additional assignments for extra credit, or have simplified assessments for those students that struggle.

Each person has his or her own style of learning. Learning styles include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. In the questionnaire, I learned that I am very much a visual learner. This reflection will show what I have learned about my unique learning style and how understanding learning styles of the children I teach will be helpful as I become a teacher. Without realizing it, I learned about what a visual learner is and methods I used in school to make sense of the knowledge I obtained.
The exemplary teachers encourage students to ask questions and discuss their ideas with classmates; they also pose open-ended, higher-level thinking questions. Another characteristics of effective literacy teachers is giving students the choice of tasks which integrate various skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening and thinking. Finally, teachers grade students’ work based not only on achievement but first and foremost based on effort, improvement and through the use of rubrics. If you walked into my classroom during the guided reading block, you would notice Arlington’s six features of effective elementary literacy instruction exhibited in various types of activities. Students would be divided into five groups according to their reading level, similar reading processes, needs and interests.
Introduction When teach you must understand the different goals and objective you’re trying to get across to your students. Your first plan of action is to submit a lesson plan and then to plan activities that will be resourceful in the classroom. Authentic Learning Experiences Textbooks published for curriculum for social studies will show pictures of different groups of people with interesting presentation of facts and pictures. Publishers look closely at different Standards to "ensure that their texts in general can meet as many state standards as possible" (Chapin, 2006, p. 23).Different books usually include different suggestions that can be used in the classroom. The different types of studies help to contribute to the needs of the kids and for different types of learning styles.

Text talk assists teachers in selecting appropriate vocabulary words to help students engage with words in meaningful ways. Dr. Connors presentation on the tier system provides teachers with a framework for choosing appropriate words. Students are exposed to tier one words on a regular basis and tier three words appear in certain contexts. This strategy is useful because it will guide question and response activities in the classroom, and help assess the student’s present level of knowledge. In addition, another useful strategy was the word association activity.
