Ways of Learning

Over the years, researchers have identified seven different learning styles — visual, aural, verbal, physical, logical, social and solitary. In addition, we can have a combination of these styles. Your best bet for making sure all of your students grow is to discover their learning styles and adjust your teaching methods accordingly.
