Abstract Random Learning Style
Abstract random learners work best when they
- can work and share with others.
"My ideas grow better with a friend."
- have assignments requiring personalization.
"I like to find what things mean to me."
- get personal attention and emotional support.
"I get so angry when a teacher thinks I'm goofing off and I'm not."
- have social activities to balance work.
"I'll work harder to finish so I can do other things."
- can answer, "How can we interpret this?"
- have freedom from control by others.
"The worst, the very worst, is a teacher who wants everything done his way."
- have a personally satisfying environment.
"I loved the color, posters, artwork, and plans in our French class."
- use personal, individual, or artistic expression.
"One of my favorite assignments was doing a collage to show the meaning of a song."
- have open communication with others.
"Class meetings are great. You can air your feelings and give your own opinion."
- have a noncompetitive atmosphere.
"Why does everything have to be done for a grade?"
Take a few moments and reflect on what phrases you have heard (by friends, relatives, teachers, etc.), or what comments you have made yourself, that show how you are a Abstract Random type thinker/learner.
