CLASSROOM GUIDANCE ACTIVITY
Do you learn better when your are able to hear information or when you are able to see it? Are you a "morning person" or a "night person"? Do you prefer to study by yourself in a quiet room or with a group, with the T.V. on or the stereo blasting? How does your personality affect your learning and study preferences?
All these questions are important to answer if you want to improve your study habits. Students differ from one another in their styles of studying and learning just as teachers differ from one another in their styles of teaching.
