What are you mastering? And if not plateau, then quit altogether. This world is short on masters, and consequently short on joy too. That sent me back for a peek at my list of Five Writing Strengthsto see if I would change or add anything—to see if I can still draw from these strengths to continually improve and move toward mastery.
Working With Strengths and Weaknesses 3. The theory, in a nutshell, is that children learn in one of three ways: And because of their learning style, they learn things a certain way. Download Article The theory has been around for a long time. Once both are identified, instruction can be tailored around those weaknesses rather than catered to their strengths alone.
For example, auditory learners tend to be better at language arts subjects such as English and Social Studies. Visual learners tend to be better at math and science, and kinesthetic learners often do well in hands-on or laboratory type situations, as opposed to lecture-style instruction.
Still, there are many exceptions to these tendencies. Rothenberg says to be aware of when it comes to learning style weaknesses: Children with auditory weaknesses have trouble following spoken directions and rely on visual cues, including watching others, to understand what to do.
Retaining multi-step directions is especially hard for them. They may also become distracted while listening to a story. Visual schedules, which use simple icons or pictures to represent tasks and steps, are helpful for these children because they provide visual clues in sequential format to guide behavior.
Adults can simply point to a picture to give reminders rather than repeatedly calling out a child's name.
Children with visual weaknesses have a hard time remembering locations and may appear disorganized or disoriented when gathering or putting away materials. Just as the name suggests, they have trouble learning things visually, so they need to be guided through any lessons with charts, diagrams, graphs, or other visual arrays.
For example, a teacher may need to tell them how different parts of a diagram relate to each other, and why. Children with kinesthetic weaknesses have trouble learning things through sense of touch — for example, learning the meaning of rough by touching sand paper, or learning smooth from touching silk.
Their ability to learn something by "doing it" physically is also weak. They may be bothered by certain textures or conversely, they may want to touch everything they can get their hands on, in order to get some extra sensory input.
Their sense of gravity can be skewed, which leads to balance and spatial problems.
Planning out a sequence of steps verbally before doing them can be very helpful.Turnitin provides instructors with the tools to prevent plagiarism, engage students in the writing process, and provide personalized feedback.
