The Three Learning Styles

Maximizing Your Student’s Learning by Recognizing and Utilizing All Learning Styles

Learning styles: ways in which the brain effectively gathers and processes information to learn

A.C.E. systematically incorporates within its curriculum and programs methods to stimulate learning in these three major learning style areas.

VISUAL LEARNING

Learn by:

  1. Reading, observing, or illustrating.
  2. Using strong visual associations.

Learning is strengthened by:

  • Note-taking and illustrating.
  • Experiencing visually stimulating objects.
  • Underlining and highlighting.
  • Visualizing what is learned.

The A.C.E. program emphasizes visual learning by:

  • Color-coded PACE procedures.
  • Reading/writing daily PACE goals.
  • Computer software and keyboarding.
  • Colorful example activities.
  • Puzzles, mazes, and visual tracking activities.
  • Brightly illustrated PACE curriculum.

AUDITORY LEARNING

Learn by:

  1. Listening to verbalized teaching.
  2. Remembering by mentally forming the sounds of words.

Learning is strengthened by:

  • Verbalizing aloud to memorize and solve problems.
  • Using rhythm and music patterns.
  • Drilling aloud to learn concepts.
  • Minimizing distractions.

The A.C.E. program emphasizes auditory learning by:

  • Scripture memory recitation.
  • Devotions and enrichment class discussion.
  • Multimedia curriculum.
  • Oral reports and recitations.
  • Oral vocabulary reading.
  • Oral social studies assignments.
  • Supervisor-directed curriculum discussion.

KINESTHETIC LEARNING

Learn by:

  1. Experiencing what one sees and hears.
  2. Physical movement and tactile activities.

Learning is strengthened by:

  • Having frequent breaks.
  • Physically participating in the learning process.
  • Writing notes or highlighting information while listening.
  • Completing projects/books filled with action.

The A.C.E. program emphasizes kinesthetic learning by:

  • Computer software and keyboard usage for tactile stimulation.
  • Manipulatives.
  • Student convention participation.
  • Active breaks and enrichment classes (P.E., music, art, etc.).
  • Active social studies and science projects.
  • Questions requiring written answers.

FOR ALL LEARNING STYLES

Incorporating all learning style activities:

  • Augments and reinforces the student’s PACE activities.
  • Strengthens areas of learning weaknesses.

Supervisors and parents should emphasize a balanced blend of learning style activities to produce the healthiest learners.
