Create a 5 pages page paper that discusses learning styles and student differences. The present research has identified that some children learn how to read by moving when they are reading aloud. Teachers have a difficulty with this style because to them it disrupts the classroom or it means that the child is “hyperactive.” This may not be the case. In the movie, “Akeelah and the Bee” Akeelah learns her words for a spelling bee by tapping the letters out on her leg as she is standing. she also recites in the same way. The movie shows that each child has a quirky way of learning and reciting but this is according to their learning style. Understanding learning styles are important to everyone but it is especially important for both students and teachers. When different styles can be incorporated into a classroom setting, more children have the opportunity to learn. Don Clark suggests that a learning style is “a student’s consistent way of responding to and using stimuli in the context of learning”. This statement suggests that students are different and they will respond differently to the way they take in information. Stewart and Felicetti define learning styles as “educational conditions under which a student is most likely to learn”. Learning styles point to the fact that students are different so they should not be subjected to a “one size fits all” type of education. Although educational reform attempts to find ways to help students learn, they have not taken into consideration that there are many different learning styles within a classroom. When a teacher has the opportunity to use a variety of styles to show the same information their teaching style will improve more children. In a college classroom teachers have a tendency to teach through lecture which is only one way that some students learn. Students who need a different type of teaching will be bored in the class and they will not get anything out of it.
