In the past when I've done learning style and multiple intelligence surveys I end up making an ISN page for them and then find that they don't really get mentioned again.
Last year I didn't even do them because I knew they never got referred to. It just so happened that I discussed learning styles with kids last year more than ever before. When working 1 on 1 with kids I am fairly good at assessing learning styles myself just by seeing how they work. So last year I had a couple kids that didn't realize they were extremely auditory and when I explained this to them it actually made a huge difference in getting them to process better and be aware of the way that their minds work. So this year I want to spend the time to get back to doing this type of stuff, but I'd like to try to do a better job of it.
So I created a sheet to put on the inside covers of their notebook to kind of sum up the way they work.
This is designed to accompany three surveys in particular that I will be using. You can find them here:
- Personality Colors
(scroll down to the Personality Test section and there are 2 links there)
- Learning Styles
- Multiple Intelligences
I do want to have more information than just the survey results, so each section has a line that says "for more info, see ISN page ____". When we put the pages in, they'll fill that out so they know where to refer to.
At the moment, having this on the inside cover is for my own benefit. When I'm working with a kid individually, I can glance quickly and then explain things in a way that best suits them. I think it's extremely important to make this transparent to the kids too though, so they know how they can then best help themselves when I'm not around.
I'm also very interested to see how the personality colors thing works out mainly because I took the quiz myself and it is amazingly spot on. I am gold to a tee. I found the section on how to tell when a particular color is stressed and how to talk to colors to be very interesting.
Fonts you will need are Miserably Lose, KG The Fighter, DK Wayang, KG Seven Sisters, and Ventura Edding. They're all free and should be easy enough to find if you search for them. I download fonts from dafont.com most frequently so look there.
