Musical experiences help them understand concepts
through rhythms, melodies, etc.
Verbal opportunities help bring out the best in linguistic learners.

2. Figure out your own learning style

***This is a newer addition to the seven learning styles, and is still debated. It is not included in the inventory you will do next, but you might see traits that reflect your personality.
You may have noticed that some learning styles overlap each other...
Example: Interpersonal and Linguistic/Verbal
Learners are both drawn to groups,
discussion, sharing ideas, etc.
You might also feel like you fall within different learning styles.
Each of us can probably see a little
bit of ourselves in each style.
But overall, we tend to fall into one style more than the others. This style reflects our personality, interests,etc.
How do we find out the one learning style that reflects us the most?
Read each of the following statements. If it expresses some traits of yours, and sounds mostly true, jot down a T. If it doesn't, then mark it with an F for false.

Place a checkmark beside the statement numbers that you marked "TRUE". Add up your trues for each column at the bottom.
Which learning style(s) did you have the most checkmarks for?

Knowing your own style can also help you realize that other people might approach the same situation in a way that is different than yours.
Have you ever felt like you excel in some areas of school and have trouble in others?
That's because we all have different LEARNING STYLES. These styles come from our strengths, weaknesses, interests, etc.
Do you feel like you are drawn to certain areas of school, while other are more challenging or don't interest you as much?
You may have noticed that your strengths, weaknesses and interests are different from your friends, family and classmates.
Recognizing your own personal LEARNING STYLE can help you:
- realize more about your own personality
- come up with ways to help yourself do better at
school and in life
- realize that we all have strengths and weaknesses
- realize that everyone has a different style and
we look at the world in different, interesting ways
