Have you found yourself asking for the teacher’s directions to be repeated? Sometimes do things just not stick? What’s going on? Is something wrong?

4 What’s a Learning Style?
There’s Good News and Bad News! Good News is, there is probably nothing wrong with you! Bad News is you will have to do some homework to figure out the best way to do your homework! Truth is, everybody’s brain is different, and each brain prefers to take in information in a particular way

5 What’s a Learning Style?
Some students remember Best materials they’ve seen, some remember things they’ve heard, while others remember things they’ve experienced!

6 How Does Your Brain Work?
People view problems or new information in 2 different ways: They see a big picture They see a group of little parts Example: Some history students will think of the Civil War as one large event with a series of battles and a specific outcome. Others will see it as a series of specific events and will remember battle places, individual victories, etc…

7 Which Way is Better? Neither way is better. However, by understanding your learning style, you may understand why you find yourself reading and not understanding!
