Easy to read and apply. This book is a helpful tool to assist a teacher or parent in identifying a child's learning style. Different students learn in different types or environments. Some may be visual, auditory, or hands on type learners. We may have to change our approach in order to reach them where they are.
This was one of the most helpful books while my children were still in school. I learned so much about them and how to help them without expecting them to learn like I do! I have given this to other moms and teachers too!
This is the standard book that homeschooler's refer to when reading about Learning Styles. However, contrary to a previous reviewer, I found it a difficult read. Perhaps it is my state of mind, but I found the authors classification of the various learning styles confusing and not clear cut. I have found other resources that are more useful for my circumstances. A more simple break down, some examples of curriculum to use and more practical tips would have been just up my street.
Great information. Easy read. Learn so much about my own way of learning. Can't wait to help my husband understand some of his difficulties. Pointed out some reasons for conflicts in our different traits.
This book was an eye opener. I realize that everybody is different but it really helped me relate better to my children and husband. She goes through 5 different ways to categorize personalities. She doesn't make excuses for personalities and she tells you that each personality has a little of the others mixed in. What I really found helpful was the checklists explaining briefly what annoys, what helps, and what to say to help each type of personality. I literally laughed out loud when she described something that annoys an analytical mind (my husband) but works for a global (me)! Good examples dispersed throughout!
This was so helpful and insightful. Not just for our children, but for my husband and me, too! Just seeing how we view things differently helps in how we communicate. This is also helping me as I try to "decipher" how our children learn (we are a homeschooling family). It has already given me some ideas on how to approach teaching each of the children in slightly different ways.
This is a wonderful book for parents of children struggling to get a grip on school work! If you understand the differences between your own learning style and your children's, you will begin to understand there is more than one way to get anything done.
