●It is important to see the different learning styles as connected because learners will have more than one learning style. Also, different tasks may be approached in different ways, making more than one learning style significant for a given task.
Learning styles are both individually and culturally motivated.
Within a given culture and on a larger scale, we can see certain learning stule preferences among individuals surfacing. This is not to say that everyone within the culture has the some preferneces, but rather, that culture does play a role in the development of our preferences.
In the next Before Reading activity : students are asked to once again make inferences and use the information given in the text to guess the meaning of words. They are also asked to use the cognitive strategy of deduction/induction to see if the information they are given in the pictures is consistent with a set of rules introduced earlier in the unit. Finally, they are asked to evaluate their answers by comparing their answers with a partner and develop the ability to determine how well they have accomplished the task.
