We know that people are different, yet so often we expect them to learn in the same way. They don't. some respond well to our traditional teaching methods, while others struggle. Some need to talk in order to learn. Others learn best when they can move and learn at the same time. Still others remember pictures more than words. There is no 'right' way.
This book identifies four learning styles that form a Natural Learning Cycle. It shows how to involve every person being taught, young and old. Different students will come to the fore at different times in the lesson, depending on the basic question they are asking:
Why do I need to know this? (imaginative')
What are the facts? ('analytic')
How will it work? ('common sense')
How can I develop what I have learned? ('dynamic')
Everyone participating; everyone learning; everyone growing.
