Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles

 

Taking your students learning styles or how they learn best into account prior to planning your lessons is a form of differentiation. It is important to grab the attention of your learners and get them excited about learning by teaching in a way that they enjoy and that they can best understand the material. This also means that you should be constantly changing your teaching strategies in order to address different learning styles, introduce students to new ways of learning, and keep the content interesting. Incorporating multiple learning styles aligns with the philosophy of Universal Design where your teaching serves ALL of your students. Often changes that you make for one student will also benefit many others. There is not one specific category that everyone will fit into, everyone possesses strengths in different intelligence areas and this is why it is so important to use different ways of teaching.
