For our first week in class, we are busy identifying the kind of “learners” that we are. Students will get to take a few quizzes to discover the ways they best learn and interact with others. To show what we learned, students will be making a “Student Inventory Card (SIC),” which will contain this information. Students wiill recieve more information about the actual card tomorrow.
Most students have identified what Learning Style and Personality Type they are, and we have done this this with the quizzes below. With them, I will put a brief description of both categories, along with a link to the on-line quizzes students took. Simply click each link to see what the students did.
If you are a student, both quizzes are now located here. Learning Styles is the one with the colorful graph, and was also shorter. The Personality Temperament was longer (70 questions) with lots of big words.
Learning Styles: This uses the Mulitple Intelligences theory, identifying the 8 major “kinds of smart” that students are. Students find out what their areas of strength are, as well as weaknesses. This has been the most interesting so far.
Personality Type: Students find out which of the 4 Personality “types” they have. This is important to teaching them the basic idea that we’re all different, therefore we act differently. When we work in groups, people are encouraged to understand that some partners may share differences, but also learn that those can be worked around to acheive success. Students will be recieving more information on their personality temperament on Friday. Just a note – most students did not take the online version due to its great length. We completed a much shorter, though less comprehensive, though far easier version in class today.
