What are its strengths and weaknesses?After reviewing the article Is Learning Styles- Bases Instruction Effective? A Comprehensive Analysis of Recent Research on Learning Styles by Joshua Cuevas, I can agree with him that our children do learn from different learning styles. I have chosen to support the statement according to Cueva (2015), “The phrase learning styles refers to the concept that different people prefer to process information in different ways and therefore learn more effectively when they receive instruction in a way that conforms to their preferences (Pashler et al., 2009)” (p. 309). There is a total of seven different learning styles and we all fall in to one of those styles some of us it takes a combination of them. The following are those seven: visual (spatial); aural (auditory- musical); verbal (linguistic); physical (kinesthetic); logical (mathematical); social (interpersonal); lastly, solitary (intrapersonal). According to Overview of Learning Styles (n.d.), “Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style oflearning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances “ (para. 1). I see this often not only in my career as a Director of Head Start but also as a parent. For example; my daughter is an auditory- musical learner, so I would consistently send everything and she would always pick it up so easily and my son on the other hand is a kinesthetic learning, when doing homework, I have to ensure that he has something in his hand; I normally ensure that he has playdough or something. The teaching in a classroom, correlates strongly to how Jesus has taught in the past; so, this should show us as Christians that he has made it very clear how we are to be as teachers to our children. I found a great blog on examples of how Jesus revealed an assortment of approaches in teaching, so this is nothing new or absurd, but something that must be taken into consideration.
