ACTIVITY 1ORGANIZING INFORMATIONStand up, discuss and organize yourselves in three groups, according to the activity in your cards.Explain the rationale for the organization.Claudio levar duas bolas3

ACTIVITY 2GENERATING IDEASIn pairs, take turns speaking non-stop for three minutes each.Partner A: What do you know about perceptual learning styles?Partner B: How can teachers apply knowledge about different learning styles to their teaching?Isabela

4ACTIVITY 3ORGANIZING INFORMATIONFill in the mind map with information generated in the previous activities.Share your mind map with a partner and complete the information about learning styles

PRE-WRITING ACTIVITIESAND LEARNING STYLES What is the connection?Pre-writing why is it important?Graph writing process (Isabelas presentation Generating ideas and planning are the most neglected which has effects on final result

CONNECTION between learning styles and prewriting activities.In this presentation we focus on prewriting, but all steps are important generating ideas and planning7

LEARNING STYLES an individuals natural, habitual, and preferred ways of absorbing, processing, and retaining new information and skills. (Kinsella, 1995, p. 171, in Christison, 2003)

8

LEARNING STYLESHow a person is likely to perceive and process information and experiences.(Mc Carthy, 1980)

9

LEARNING STYLESCognitive, affective, and physiological traits that are relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with, and respond to the learning environment. (Keefe, 1979, p. 4)

KEY RESEARCH FINDINGSESL / EFL teachers teaching styles often reflect their own learning style

As cited in Leopold, 2010

KEY RESEARCH FINDINGSHigher student achievement relates to a match between student learning styles and teacher teaching styles

As cited in Leopold, 2010

KEY RESEARCH FINDINGSAlthough culture is not the sole determinant, it is one of the principal factors influencing learning styles

As cited in Leopold, 2010

KEY RESEARCH FINDINGSMore than 90% of the traditional college classroom is auditory

As cited in Leopold, 2010

KEY RESEARCH FINDINGSMost ESL students strongly prefer kinesthetic learning

As cited in Leopold, 2010PERCEPTUAL LEARNING STYLES

The most well-known types of learning styles are the perceptual ones visual, auditory, kinesthetic, (and tactile), known as the VAK(T ) model. However, they are not the only ones.

PERCEPTUAL LEARNING STYLESthe perceptual perspective allows us to take into account aspects of several well-recognized learning-style theories by synthesizing their important characteristics into an approach that is based on behaviors and/or actions that can be easily perceived in a classroom situation (Sarasin, 1998).

WHAT IS YOUR LEARNING STYLE?Read the sentences on the postersStand next to the poster with sentences that best describe your preferred learning style

Adapted from Barsch http://ww2.nscc.edu/gerth_d/AAA0000000/barsch_inventory.htmThe actual test involves choosing whether the sentences are seldom, often, or sometimes true

There are many learning style inventories that have been used, some available online. Criticism. Not validated. Just mention criticism.22

VISUAL LEARNERSVisual learners have two sub-channels

LinguisticSpatial 23

VISUAL LEARNERSvisual-linguistic learnerslearn through written language, such as reading and writing tasksremember what has been written down, even if they do not read it more than oncelike to write down directionspay better attention to lectures if they watch them

24

VISUAL LEARNERSvisual-spatial learners usually have difficulty with the written languagedo better with charts, demonstrations, videos, and other visual materialsvisualize faces and places by using their imagination and seldom get lost in new surroundings.

25

KINESTHETIC LEARNERS Kinesthetic learners two sub-channels:

kinesthetic (movement) and tactile (touch)

tend to lose concentration if there is little or no external stimulation or movement

KINESTHETIC LEARNERSWhen listening to lectures, they may want to take notes for the sake of moving their hands. When reading, they like to scan the material first, and then focus in on the details (get the big picture first). They typically use color highlighters and take notes by drawing pictures, diagrams, or doodling.

AUDITORY LEARNERS often talk to themselvesmay move their lips and read out loud. may have difficulty with reading and writing tasks. often do better talking to a colleague or a voice recorder and hearing what was said.

SAMPLE ACTIVITIES

Activity 1 My weekendWork in groups of six. Each person has a connector. Say the first sentence and use the connector in another sentence. The next person repeats the sentences and adds one more, using his/her connectorThe last participant should have a whole paragraph, that can be memorized by the group

On my last vacation I went to China and I did many interesting things there.Ask how other styles can be met

Activity 2 Hosting a world cupForm a circle. The first participant gives one advantage to hosting a world cup and throws the ball. The participant who gets the ball has to say one disadvantage to hosting a world cup and throw the ball.Continue until all participants have given an advantage or disadvantage to the topic.

Model take two balls advantages and disadvantages31

Activity 3 Global WarmingComplete the tree with causes and consequences of global warming.The trunk of the tree represents the problem. The roots represent the causes and the canopy represents the consequences.Share your tree with a partner.
