Sandee has three kids, none of them are alike. One studies on the floor with papers strewn everywhere, another lies on the bed with the radio blaring, and the third sits at the dinner table with cookies in hand! It used to drive her crazy. After all, this isn’t how she was raised! But it is The Way They Learn.
In this enlightening resource, Cynthia Ulrich Tobias introduces the variety of learning styles that shape the way students interpret their world. Once these approaches are understood, parents and teachers can become far more effective in helping children grasp confusing concepts, stay interested in lessons, and utilize their strengths.
For instance, in teaching vocabulary words, some children respond best by using flash cards, while others need verbal drills, and a third group thrives on using body movements to help recall definitions. By recognizing a child’s learning preferences, you can reach them more efficiently and effectively! And with our nation in an educational crisis, there’s never been a better time for this book.
Tobias’ work is required reading for any parent or teacher who truly wants to see kids succeed in school. These concepts are powerful tools for drawing out the best in a child. Give your youngsters the best chance for success by coming to understand The Way They Learn.
