Your Learning Style
As a teacher, you tend to feel more comfortable teaching the way
that you learn best. It's easy to make the assumption that this strategy
will work for all students. In order to become a more effective teacher,
you need to determine your own learning style. Once you determine your
own style and learn to recognize other styles, you can begin to
incorporate a variety of approaches into your teaching. Maybe those
blank stares you see in the classroom will just disappear!
One method to help determine your learning style is to become aware
of your preferences. Preferences might include how you perceive the world, how you prefer to
interact with the world, how you become aware of things and people in the world, and how you make judgments. Your unique preferences come together to form your personality.
There are several personality tests available today that assist you in
becoming aware of your preferences. The test included here is a scaled-down,
unofficial version that resembles the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®.
Once you determine your 4-letter type (e.g. ISTJ), you can match
the type with the corresponding learning style. Ready? On
to the test!
