Learning Styles

Accommodate various learning styles. When building classroom community, consider the various ways in which your students learn. There are students who can remember everything covered in a class discussion, while others need visuals to reinforce concepts. Some students respond well to lectures, while others have to participate in order to follow along. Try different approaches and see how students respond to each.
