Multiculturalism and learning style : teaching and counseling adolescents by Rita Dunn( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This consideration of learning style and the minority student analyzes and synthesizes the research that reveals the similarities and differences among the learning styles of culturally diverse populations and describes how to teach and counsel adolescents with different learning styles. Research suggests that students whose instruction is not responsive to their learning styles achieve significantly less than children whose instruction is responsive. The implications of the varied individual, rather than the cultural group, and the learning styles of multicultural students are discussed for both teaching and counseling. The efforts of schools that have successfully reversed underachievement among culturally diverse students are described. The research on which these conclusions are based involved the participation of more than 18 professors and 60 doctoral students working collaboratively at St. John's University in New York. The instrumentation designed to identify learning style and 21 elements of learning style are identified. One table and 28 figures illustrate the discussion. A sample programmed learning sequence is illustrated with 45 instructional frames. (Contains 369 references.) (Sld)
Learning styles : quiet revolution in American secondary schools by Rita Dunn( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case study observations and analyses of learning styles in U.S. secondary schools comprise the crux of this monograph. The text provides testimony to the accomplishments of schools actually integrating differentiated learning styles into their diverse educational programs and concomitant coursework. With the notion that learning style provides important insights into the ways individual students process information, this research documents the implementation of learning styles successfully in 12 schools. The schools are of many varieties: public and private (including parochial and nonsectarian); rural, suburban, and urban schools both large and small; an alternative program; and a university-affiliated laboratory school. In addition to the 12 case studies, learning styles are defined and effective leadership and management strategies facilitating learning styles' applications are diagnosed. A reference list of 8 pages and an annotated bibliography of 21 items are included. (Jam)

How to implement and supervise a learning style program by Rita Dunn( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many people prefer to learn in ways that differ from the ways in which other people of the same class, grade, age, nationality, race, culture, or religion prefer to do. The ways in which people prefer to learn are their "learning style preferences." This handbook was designed for supervisors interested in implementing and guiding staff in the proven educational methods of learning styles. Chapter 1 presents an overview of learning styles and explains how they develop. Chapter 2 describes the first steps toward implementation: conduct an inventory of students' learning styles; introduce learning styles to the staff and parents; and supplement learning-style training. The third chapter offers suggestions for classroom techniques: connecting learning styles and students; assessing students; strengthening students' understanding of learning styles; and personalizing learning styles. Strategies for redesigning classrooms for personalized learning are offered in chapter 4. (Contains 76 references and 5 figures.) (lmi)
