Teachers must focus on learning opportunities that draw on children’s strengths and interests. Our text discusses how educators should focus on children’s individual differences by implementing instruction through the multiple intelligences.
After reading our course material, chapter 5, discuss the following:
*How would knowing children’s individual learning styles impact activity planning?
*Give 2 examples of how you would accommodate a variety of learning styles in an early childhood classroom? (gifted and talented, individuals with disabilities, children whose strengths are in math, bodily kinesthetic learners, naturalist, etc).
*What type of “learner” (page 148-149) are you and how will your knowledge of your learning style impact your teaching?
