For some of us, it’s by listening. For oth-
ers, it’s by seeing. And for others, it’s by touching and doing.
• If your child learns best by listening, she may find it helpful to read her text or notes out loud and record them. Then she can play the tape back and listen to the material.
• If your child learns best by seeing, have her read the material several times. As she goes through it the last time, she can quiz herself on key points. Also have her picture the written questions and answers in her mind.
• If your child learns best by doing, have her write out information. She can copy notes or make outlines. Drawing pictures and making diagrams is also helpful.
Flash cards are helpful tools for students who learn best in any of the above ways. A “doer” benefits from writing questions on one side of the card and answers on the other. A “looker” benefits from reading the cards over and over. A “listener” benefits from saying the questions and answers out loud.
