When Scott and I married, we had no idea that we would make such a great parenting team. Now, I’m not bragging about our parenting skills … I’m talking about that fact that he is great at math, and English is kinda my thing! Our kids had it made! We could totally help with homework … or so we thought. As our boys got older, a typical math homework night started with Scott patiently explaining a concept or skill. The son listened and tried to understand the instruction. But if there was any confusion, Scott would try to re-explain. But he didn’t always find a different way to teach the lesson. And each time he re-explained, his voice got louder and louder, but he seemed to say things in the very same way each time, so the son never really understood. Those nights always ended with the boy crying, me crying, or Scott crying. Scott knew the math, but he tried to teach it the same way each time. Effective communicating and training require that information is shared and repeated, but in different ways to meet the needs of all types of learners. Work to present information visually. Offer activities that involve movement for kinesthetic learners. Verbally share and repeat for auditory learners. Information should be explained and re-explained using different teaching strategies. etc Strategies believes that active learning should address all types of learners. Using different teaching strategies to meet the needs of different learners will always produce a cry-proof communication experience!
