You are an Auditory learner! Check out the information below, or view all of the learning styles.
If you are an auditory learner, you learn by hearing and listening. You understand and remember things you have heard. You store information by the way it sounds, and you have an easier time understanding spoken instructions than written ones. You often learn by reading out loud because you have to hear it or speak it in order to know it.
As an auditory learner, you probably hum or talk to yourself or others if you become bored. People may think you are not paying attention, even though you may be hearing and understanding everything being said.
Here are some things that auditory learners like you can do to learn better.
· Sit where you can hear.
· Have your hearing checked on a regular basis.
· Use flashcards to learn new words; read them out loud.
· Read stories, assignments, or directions out loud.
· Record yourself spelling words and then listen to the recording.
· Have test questions read to you out loud.
· Study new material by reading it out loud.
Remember that you need to hear things, not just see things, in order to learn well.
Reformed/student-centered (Survey score: >19; RTOP score 60-100)
Dr. Gandalf uses the instructional period in a manner that maximizes student interactions with the instructor and with one another. Instruction typically revolves around a discipline-based problem, building on prior knowledge and using sophisticated means or representations of abstract data (equations, cross sections, different plots). Students make and test predictions, influencing the focus of class, and commonly give individual or group presentations. Most or all of the student voices are heard with discussion at multiple levels (small groups and/or class wide) and there are ample opportunities for reflection.
· Student activities typically dominate the class time.
· Student activities commonly involve jigsaw or role-playing to explore topics.
· Student voices generally influence the directions of discussions and activities.
· There is an exploration of divergent questions and views.
· A positive learning environment is evident from deep, meaningful student conversations, supported by a patient, listening teacher.
