Transcript of Teaching Styles vs. Learning Styles

Objective... Senior Project
Teacher: Amber Woolsey
Class: AP Literature
Mentor: Grace Jackson Sarah Cook Intelligences Used:

Naturalistic

Mathematical/Logical

Bodily/Kinesthetic

Interpersonal Lesson One: Pumpkins Intellegences Used:

Verbal/Linguistic

Bodily/Kinesthetic

Mathematic/Logical Lesson Two: Apples The activity for this class dealing with naturalistic learning was picking pumpkins from a “pumpkin patch." This is because the children were able to go out into the playground and identify the pumpkin that they wanted. In this class, both of the activities were mathematical/logical because of the visual materials (the pumpkin patch), and the feeling inside of the pumpkin (learning about what the insides are). Head Start is a Federal program for preschool children from low-income families. The Head Start program is operated by local non-profit organizations in almost every county in the country. Children who attend Head Start participate in a variety of educational activities. They also receive free medical and dental care, have healthy meals and snacks, and enjoy playing indoors and outdoors in a safe setting. (1) What is Head Start? Breakfast 8:50
Outside Time 9:20
Group Meeting 9:30
Brush Teeth 9:45
Small Groups 9:45
Clean Up 10:45
Outside Time 10:50
Bathroom 11:40
Story/Music Time 11:40
Lunch 11:50
Bathroom 12:20
Rest 12:30
Snack 1:40
Free Choice 1:55
Reflect 2:15
Depart 2:30 What is the Schedule Followed Activities to promote the bodily/ kinesthetic learners was both the feeling the inside of the pumpkin, and going to the pumpkin patch. Both of these are kinesthetic becuase the children are able to use their hands. For the pumpkin anatomy, the children were able to identify the different parts. Citations!!

Depart 2:30 What is the Schedule Followed Verbal/Linguistic In this lesson, the children learned an apple song and danced during music time. When they sang certain words, they did a dance move to illastrate it. An example of it is when they sang "way up in the apple tree," they stretched their arms in the air.

"Way up in the apple tree
two apples were smiling at me.
I shook the tree as hard as I could,
and the apples fell.
Mmmmmm they were good." Bodily/Kinesthetic In this lesson, the children had to put together an apple puzzle. This is using the logical intelligence because different apples are cut in half both vertically and horizontally were all put together by the children. In this activity, the children have to analyze each apple. Mathematic/Logical Conclusion Objective: By teaching three different classes using the different multiple intelligences in each activity, I will find the best way to teach that age group and teach them certain important topics. Lesson One: Pumpkin Identifying inside of the pumpkings
Keeping Focus on the "Pumpkin Patch"
Trading pumpkings with eachother in the line Naturalistic Identifying the inside of the pumpkin
Organizing the centers
Being in line from the playground to the
classroom and following direction Mathematic/Logic Finding the pumpkins in the patch
Connecting the lesson about what is on the inside of the pumpkin to the actual feel of the pumpkin Bodily/Kinesthetic Showing each other their pumpkins
Trading the pumpkins
Participating in centers
Feeling in the pumpkin together Interpersonal Pros:
The kids stayed on focus
Identifying the pumpkins was successful
The trading with the other children showed that the kids can identify what they like

Cons:
The pumpkins did not stay glued and became a hassle to glue back Pros:
The kids enjoyed finding their pumpkin
The kids connected a real pumpkin patch to what I set up in the playgroud
Feeling the inside of the pumpkins helped them connect to the lesson Cons:
The mess from the inside of the pumpkin
Sand in the shoes of the kids
The pumpkins falling apart Pros:
Great hands on activities
Good identification

Cons:
Organization and knowlege of what group was when was not good
Keeping in line was a struggle Pros:
Great communication between the students
Participation was good
Kids enthusiastic
Cons:
A feeling of being out of control
The large group was intimidating
Gaining control of the group was not reached with ease Teaching Styles
Vs.
Learning Styles In the apple class, the children were read a book called "Apple Pie 4th of July." After the book, the children were asked basic questions which they all answered correctly. This is when the verbal intelligence is used because they had to listen in order to remember the answer. Naturalistic- Hands-on learning, preferably outdoors is the best way for these students to learn (2)
Mathematical/Logical- learn best when taught using visual materials, computers, statistical and analytical programs, and hands on projects (3)
Bodily/Kinesthetic-Kinesthetic learners learn best by moving their bodies, activating their large or small muscles as they learn.
Interpersonal- good understanding and interacting with other people. These individuals are skilled at assessing the emotions, motivations, desires and intentions of those around them.
Verbal/Linguistic- when the child learns the best when someone is talking to them, and remembering informarion
Visual-a learning style where the learner better understands and retains information when ideas, words and concepts are associated with images.
Musical-understanding and making rhythms, sounds, relationships and patterns in sounds, and the ability to create musical compositions accompanied with rhymes. In the activities, intrepersonal intelligence is used whe the children found their pumpkins and began sharing with others, while in the pumpkin station, groups were made and we all talked about pumpkins. In the class, the mathematic style is used by putting together an ambulance puzzle. The children were asked what shape they were gluing and what color it was. The 911 Song I found this song and experimented with the children. This song incorporates musical, visual, and auditory learning. The musical learning was seen in the song. The song discribes when it is appropriate to dial 911 and how to do it. The visual learning comes into play because the children have a paper telephone key pad to dial 911 along with me. This way, they will know what a telephone key pad looks like The auditory comes into play with this song because the children had to hear me sing befor they could learn it themselves. Lesson Two: Apples The Intelligences I Used Mathematic/Logical
Musical
Bodily/Kinesthetic
Auditory/Linguistic
Visual/Spatial How did the Children Do? Naturalistic- The children loved to be outside and finding things. During the activity of the pumpkin patch, everyone stayed focused and did very well.
Mathematical/Logical- With the apple and ambulance puzzle, some had a hard time without help, but they all succeeded in the end.
Bodily/Kinesthetic- With the songs, the pumpkin patch, and the pumpkin anatomy, the children seemed to love feeling and moving aroung. They have lots of energy and when they did not work it off, they would not sleep during nap time.
Interpersonal- The children were very social and did very well with interacting with eachother, although we did have some problems with hitting, it is to be expected.
Verbal/Linguistic- The children had a hard time paying attention when reading books, my solution was to ask them questions from the book that related to their lives.
Visual- Wearing my ambulance uniform, and bringing in the telephone key pads got them more interacted with the class.
Musical- The most successful teaching style, the musical intelligence was used every class period, even if it wasn't connected to the senior project. This got every child interacting with class and when dancing was added, the kinesthetic intelligence helped with the energy. The kinesthetic intelligence is used through pressing the buttons on the telephone key pad to teach the children which buttons to press.
