Socrates Teacher without a school. Roamed about Athens engaging people in provocative dialogue about questions of ultimate significance. Goal was to help others find the truths that lie within themselves. Today we call his approach the Socratic method . By repeatedly questioning, disproving, and testing thoughts, students reach deeper, clearer ideas. Often challenged popular beliefs and conventional ideas and put to death for his “impiety.”

Three Factors that Contribute to Learning Style: 1. Cognitive (information processing ) – We all have different ways of perceiving, organizing, and retaining information. Visual -Kinesthetic -Read/Write Auditory -Global-Narrow focus 2. Affective (attitudes ) – We all have a different level of motivation and intensity which will include our attitudes, values, frustrations, and the willingness to take risks. Locus of Control – learners attribute success or failure to internal or external factors; internal allows learners to be in control of their destiny. 3. Physiology – We all have different make ups that can either help or hurt us: ability or inability to sit for long periods of time, night owls vs. day learners; also, light, sound, temperature affect how we learn.
