  8. Video
  9. Mind maps
Auditory—Learn by Hearing
  1. Tapes
  2. Reading aloud
  3. Oral instructions
  4. Lectures
  5. Using rhythmic sounds
  6. Poems, rhymes
  7. Word associations
  8. Group discussions
  9. Music, lyrics
Kinesthetic/Tactile--Learn by Doing
  1. Experiments/labs
  2. Plays, acting, role play
  3. Games
  4. Problem-solving
  5. Field-trips
  6. Writing notes
  7. Making lists
  8. Props, physical examples
  9. Associating emotions with concepts

  1. Ms. Miller,
    I enjoyed the layout of the ways to help the different learners.
    All of these ways also can help learners of all ages and types. Do you think there is a specific type of learn depending on ability?
    Do students with gifted needs have a certian learning type better than others? What about students with special needs?
    THank you .
