learning styles, teaching
As most of us already know, students (and all people) learn differently, either primarily in an auditory fashion, in a visual fashion, or in a tactile fashion (learning by doing). An appropriate strategy for the classroom is to teach the same material in three different ways -- not necessarily repeat the material, but to provide elements in each class that appeal to each of the learning styles.
