What multiple intelligence learning styles are used for a brochure activity?

A brochure activity is a great way to mix creativity and content. Brochures are usually filled with information about an area or contain directions about doing something. This allows a brochure activity to be done in Science, Social Studies and Language Arts depending on the curriculum.

Bringing in the multiple intelligence learning styles are a great way to interest students in an activity. The more multiple intelligence learning styles a teacher can bring into an activity the more students they have a chance of reaching. Brochure activities use four different multiple intelligence learning styles. The following are used in a brochure activity:

  • Linguistic Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Spatial Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Intrapersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style
  • Interpersonal Multiple Intelligence Learning Style

Brochures, using informative language, use the linguistic multiple intelligence learning style. A brochure activity can give a little spunk to expository writing. It can help grab the attention of students.

Brochures wouldn’t be much to look at without pictures. This section will interest those students with the spatial multiple intelligence learning style. Teachers can allow students to either draw or choose pictures and other images to cut and paste. A brochure activity is a good one to do on the computer as well with Publisher.

A brochure activity can be done either individually (intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning style) or with a partner (interpersonal multiple intelligence learning style). You can have your students choose the day before how they would like to do the activity. That way you differentiate instruction for the different multiple intelligence learning styles. You will also have time to put them in partners you think will work the best, preferably one of the partners will have a strong linguistic multiple intelligence learning style and the other will have a strong spatial multiple intelligence learning style.

Teachers can differentiate instruction by providing their students with four options for activities all using different multiple intelligence learning styles and using the same content. Using activity templates can help teachers differentiate instruction more often during work sessions. When I started to allow students to choose their activity the day before I noticed that students looked forward to coming to class the next day because they had greater ownership over their education. It also allows you to make the correct copies needed for the activity.

Why should you teach students to use an outline for expository writing?

Expository Writing Outline

Outlines are extremely helpful to students to organize their thoughts and ideas for expository writing. Students with a logical learning style will appreciate the use of an outline because it is systematic, which is something that they value. Students with a spatial learning style will also appreciate the use of an expository writing outline because they will be able to see their content in the expository writing in a different way. This can also help students diagnosed with ADHD because the outline will prompt them and refocus their efforts much more quickly. Students with learning disabilities may get overwhelmed by the task of writing an expository essay or a DBQ essay. An expository writing outline can be separated into paragraph sections, making writing a much more reasonable task.

What is the spatial learning style?

What is the spatial learning style?

The spatial learning style is a style of learning based on the multiple intelligence theory by Dr. Howard Gardner. One of the multiple intelligences is spatial intelligence. The people who have a spatial learning style are visual learners. They learn best by seeing or creating visuals. People with a spatial learning style see the end product unlike those with a logical learning style who see steps. This learning style can be used often in classes like science and social studies to differentiate instruction in both mini-lessons and activities or work sessions. When studying, a mnemonic roman room might work well to remember content. When students with the spatial learning style read and write they visualize the events. This helps make the content much more meaningful and interesting for them. When learning content, those with the spatial learning style, appreciate things like diagrams, pictures, cartoons and other visuals.

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
