Well, along comes this book, which is pretty timely. I started reading it just to make sure it was good and pretty soon, I was immersed. I love how the author breaks down all of the different types of learners before delving into how to target pupils by type. Because when I was in school, there were only three types... which never seemed exactly right. From there, the author does a masterful job of providing step-by-step instructions for those who seek--not to manage kids--but to lead and inspire them.
Having now read the entire book myself, I am hugely excited to give this to my cousin, and I recommend highly for any teacher who is feeling a little stifled by the current environment of teaching, or who just needs a little inspiration. The tone is educational, but the ideas are concrete and good, and the spirit of the book is uplifting. And who couldn't use a little lift right now.
All Students Have Their Own Dominant Learning Styles:
1) Auditory Learners: excel at remembering what they hear; they respond well to rhythms, rhymes, music, and sounds; use sound effects when telling stories; play audiobooks
2) Kinesthetic Learners: prefer physical movement and activities; they learn best while moving; they tend to have advanced fine-motor skills; they thrive at role-playing
3) Logical Learners: excel at mathematics and reasoning; they enjoy categorizing and classifying; they are good with numbers, identifying cause and effect, and thinking strategically
4) Naturalistic Learners: respond well while they experience nature; they are observational learners quick to notice when things change; often they become scientists
5) Read + Write Learners: prefer written words; they are talented note-takers; enjoy word games; tend to choose creative occupations
6) Social Learners: respond well to social interaction; strong leadership skills; good at listening and identifying facial expressions; extroverts who love collaborating with others
7) Solitary Learners: prefer to study on their own; keep to themselves; introverts who need a quiet environment; love study guides; independent and creative
8) Verbal Learners: excel at literary and language studies; use their linguistic skills for writing and communicating; enjoy giving presentations; tend to be educators
9) Visual Learners: love visual aids like images, diagrams, colors, pictures, film clips, drawings; tend to have careers in design, art, photography, and architecture; learns well with flashcards
Students are more motivated to learn when they can do so using their own preferred learning style. The author recommends a blended learning environment that uses the best parts of traditional learning and adds the innovative aspects of online learning. Many online lessons can be delivered in a variety of learning styles so students can learn in their preferred manner.
The book also covers the importance of classroom management and shares valuable tips on creating a fun learning environment that is motivating for all types of learners. Also discussed is the fine art of lesson planning that teaches the different parts of an effective lesson.
I highly recommend this book for any teacher or aspiring teacher. Whether you are new to teaching or have been teaching for years (and want to refine your skills). This is a fantastic read.

The writing is poorly edited. At times, I wondered if a bot had written it. The introduction promises that "In this book, you will learn everything you need to become a better teacher". An arrogant statement to make. By the way, I learnt nothing. Save your money and buy Teach Like a Champ or one of the other excellent books by accomplished and experienced educators. I certainly won't buy another book like this without googling the author. Lesson learnt.
