Question 1 of 30

What different learning styles have you used when teaching?

"When I taught art last year, I used a couple of learning styles to help my students succeed. The first was tactial. Having students get their hands dirty in art is the biggest way they learn, in my opinion. Secondly, I used audible learning styles, where students would learn from one another by listening and taking notes on a variety of art themes we were focusing on."
