Teachers observe students for clues to learning style

Teachers at a South Carolina elementary school say that educators should adapt to their students' varied learning styles. "You've got to really know your learner," said Susan Hill, the principal of Duncan Elementary School. "You've got content and standards you've got to teach, but unless you know your learner and how they learn best, it's not going to make much of a difference. At our school and in our district we really want to become expert kid-watchers to kind of watch to see when they're doing certain things and what they do." The Greenville News (S.C.)

It is necessary to know your learners mostly in Foreign Language in Elementary Schools. Even though, a little bit hard but you need to find out the best way to learn them fast and become expert to it.

I am looking forward for your blog post...
