    Homework Help: Education
    Posted by Cathy on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 3:36pm.


    I need to identify categories of learner characteristic that relate to diversity in the learning environment. describe the implications for learning associated with those characteristics?
    I have came up with : Prior Knowledge and Learning Styles. I have to create a concept map with 10 concepts and 10 links between these concepts. I have been searching for 2 days I guess I don't really know what I am looking for or how to set this up.

    List what you mean by "learning styles."

    Education - Cathy, Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 7:15pm
    Learning Styles are: Cognitive, Physiological, affective and social. Should this not be added. I just cannot come up with the characteristics I need for the concept map. Do you have any suggestions?

    What characteristics of diverse learners in these categories? Think about students with special needs like mobility, sight, emotional and learning disabilities. Also think about students whose first language is not English. What about children from different religious backgrounds.

    When I asked about learning styles, I was thinking of something much simpler. I have found (since 1975) that if a teacher focuses on three general categories of learning styles, he/she will be able to address most or all students' learning abilities. In addition, teachers need to know what their own favored (automatic) learning style/styles is/are, AND they need to be trained to teach OUTSIDE their comfort area.

    One of the most powerful thing I've ever witnessed was when all the teachers in the English dept where I taught (primarily visual learners and teachers) were taught to teach in all three areas ... that is to combine visual (reading and writing) with auditory (read aloud to the class, not predictably!) and kinesthetic (making whatever was necessary to illustrate understanding of a particular story, chapter in a book, or act in a play).

    I know I'm getting "into the weeds" with all this, but the point is that teachers need to know their students and then plan their lessons and assignments so that all students have ways in which to express their understanding of whatever they're studying.

    PS - The school in which I taught the longest time has about 98-99% Latino student population, and about half of the students there are not native English speakers.
