Readiness/Learning Profile

“…Multiple intelligences describe an individual’s strengths or capacities; learning styles describe an individual’s traits that relate to where and how one best learns” (textbook quote, [H2] Learning Styles].

This week you’ve read about the importance of getting to know your students in order to create relevant and engaging lesson plans that cater to multiple intelligences and are multimodal.

Assignment Instructions:

A. Using SurveyMonkey, create a survey that has:

•At least five questions based on Gardner’s theory •Five questions on individual learning style inventory •A specific targeted student population grade level (elementary/ middle/ high school/adults) •Include the survey link for your peers

B. Post a minimum 150 word introduction to your survey, using at least one research-based article (cited in APA format) explaining how it will:

•Evaluate students’ readiness •Assist in the creation of differentiated lesson plans.

Guided Response: Take the survey of at least two of your peers, assuming the role of a student attempting to create an individualized learning style.

What could be added to more accurately assess your level of readiness? Make suggestions based on the article you cited in your prompt, other articles you’ve read, and information from this week’s readings.
