How can you differentiate instruction using the spatial learning style?

Differentiate Instruction using the Spatial Learning Style

Teachers can use the spatial learning style to differentiate instruction quickly. Before we get too far though, let’s discuss what the spatial learning style is. People with the spatial learning style have the ability to understand and interpret concepts visually.

So if a teacher wants to use the spatial learning style to differentiate instruction, they need to bring in visuals for their mini-lesson or have the students create them in the activity they do. During the mini-lesson, the teacher can easily use a PowerPoint presentation with multi-media like pictures, videos, cartoons, paintings, maps, etc. or bring in artifacts in order to differentiate instruction using the spatial learning style.

If a teacher wants to differentiate instruction using the spatial learning style during an activity they can offer one of these as an option:

  • drawing  a political cartoon
  • creating a poster
  • creating a tattoo
  • drafting
  • photography
  • creating a video
  • creating a PowerPoint
  • creating a cartoon on the Internet
  • creating a comic strip
  • fashion design
  • advertisement
  • diagram
  • diorama
  • graphic organizers
