Kenrick-Glennon Seminary - learning styles make a difference

I am in the process of updating this page. Educators, online and in face to face classrooms, please remember - we all learn differently and the way you learn will most likely be the way you teach!
 
Remember your students might be auditory or kinesthetic learners - update your content, create audios, create MP3 files for upload to mobile devices. Let's try to reach every student, every learning style. 
 
An educator from Colorado has been working with her students to help them determine how they learn best.
 
One of her students came across this web site and asked that it be included on the web page. Thank you Chris, and your teacher Janelle, for helping up create a site that we hope will help all students learn more, and learn easier.

Adapting Your Management Approach for Different Learning Styles

Students, remember, you may be lacking in one subject area, but you might be gifted in another! We are all special in our own way - we just need to know how we learn best and once we do that, we can learn more, and we can learn easier, and we will remember what we learn!! My father used to tell me that we can be anything we want to be, we just have to want it bad enough.
