Homework Insights #6

Learning Styles, by Bill Rusin

When assignments are set, try not to take over the assignment. This is tempting if the assignment is challenging. Remember that the assignment is a learning experience not one that “grades” your child. Be careful to support, and not do your kids’ assignments.

Think about your child’s learning style. Here are some clues about how your child can learn best:

  • Does your child learn best if they see things things, such as diagrams or drawings?
  • Does your child learn best from a spoken explanation?
  • Do they learn best when they handle or move things?

Each of these are legitimate learning styles. You may ask a teacher who can give you some clues about your child’s preferred learning style as you seek to help them.
