7 Keep trying! Based on your responses, your study habits have some room for improvement. Fortunately, there's no need to panic—you already have some good study habits. But you also have some that you can work on. Take a look at your "Not Interested" column and give one or two of the items listed a try. By improving just one or two additional study habits, you may soon see a jump in your test scores. And that's what developing good study habits is all about! Great Job! Based on your responses, your study habits are already very good. You already have great study skills, so any improvements you make will only lead to more success. Want to aim for the best study habits possible? The ultimate goal would be for all of your responses to appear in the "Already Do" column. Don't Give Up! Based on your responses, you're not interested in studying. Developing good study habits can be a challenge, especially if you already have a busy life. But don't dismiss the importance of studying. Fortunately, you don't have to change your study habits all at once! Just pick one or two and give them a try. You may soon see a jump in your test scores. That small reward may be enough to encourage you to work to improve your study habits even more. Keep It Up! Based on your responses, you're already working to improve your study habits. Pick one or two of the items in the "Plan to Do" column and give them a try. By improving just one or two study habits, you may soon see a jump in your test scores. And that's what developing good study habits is all about!

12 Learning Styles

13 Write your name on a piece of paper. Write your name with your non-dominant hand. Hmmmm.... What do we scv vcbc ccvee?

14 What would you do if they lost the use of your dominant hand? These are variations of adapting. This is the primary concept behind learning styles: we all have preferences for learning new things in certain ways, but we can also adapt when it’s necessary.

15 What is a learning style? Is the way a person learns Is part of who a person is Most people learn through a combination of 3 primary learning styles However, a person has a preference

16 Why is it important to know your learning style? Helps you capitalize on your strengths and improve weaknesses Improves performance on tests when study habits are consistent with styles Your learning style may be the single most important key to improving your grades Helps you work more effectively in groups

20 FIRST:Look at “Often” column – for every one checked find the corresponding number on the above chart and put a “5” in the PTS. column NEXT:Look at “Sometimes” column – for every one checked find the corresponding number on the above chart and put a “3” in the PTS. column THEN: Put a “1” in all the remaining boxes (NOT THE VPS BOX at the bottom) Add up each column and put the total in the box at the bottom of that column

21 Total the score for each section. A score of 21 points or more in a modality indicates a strength in that area. The highest of the 3 scores indicates the most efficient method of information intake. The second highest score indicates the modality which boosts the primary strength. For example, a score of 23 in visual modality indicates a strong visual learner. Such a learner benefits from the text, from filmstrips, charts, graphs, etc. If the second highest score is auditory, then the individual would benefit from audio tapes, lectures, etc. If you are strong kinesthetically, then taking notes and rewriting class notes will reinforce information.

22 Auditory Learning Style Learn through hearing Remember things when they are heard Relate most effectively to the spoken word Tend to listen to a lecture, take notes afterwards Read information out loud

23 Visual Learning Style Learn through seeing Relate most effectively to written information, notes, diagrams and pictures Take notes even when they have printed course notes Most effective in written communications

24 Kinesthetic/Tactile Learning Style Learn through moving, doing and touching Learn skills through imitation and practice Strong need for activity and exploration

25 Tips for Visual Learners Use pictures, charts, maps, graphs Have a clear view of your teacher to observe body language and facial expressions Use color to highlight important points in text Take notes or ask teacher to provide handouts Study in a quiet place away from verbal disturbances Read illustrated books Visualize information as a picture to aid memorization Write a story and illustrate it Use multi-media

26 Tips for Auditory Learners Participate in class discussions/debates Make speeches and presentations Use a tape recorder during lectures, instead of taking notes Read text out loud Create musical jingles to aid memorization Create mnemonics to aid memorization Discuss your ideas verbally Dictate to someone while they write down your thoughts Use verbal analogies and story telling to demonstrate your point

27 Tips for Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners Take frequent study breaks Move around to learn new things Work at a standing position Chew gum while studying Use bright colors to highlight reading material Dress up your work space with posters Listen to music while you study Skim through reading material to get a rough idea what it is about before settling down to read it in detail

28 How to use your learning style? Think about a course that you would like to improve your performance Share your learning style with that teacher Look for ways that you can work independently and with your teacher better help you learn, i.e., study guides, PowerPoint presentations, role playing, etc.
