5 VISUAL LEARNERS learn best by seeing absorb written information easier prefer textbooks, diagrams, displays feel secure when seeing facial expressions, body language

6 AUDITORY LEARNERS learn best by hearing prefer oral presentations by teachers / fellow students grasps the most from verbal discussions

7 TACTILE LEARNERS learn by hands-on doing enjoy putting projects together learn best by being shown how to do something doing things themselves

8 Teachers need to understand that students respond differently to these types of instruction create a teaching-and-learning atmosphere which will provide for the needs of all students let go of their bias about their own preferred method of instruction provide a wide enough range of teaching methods from which learners in all three categories have an equal chance
