While you are on this one, my American History class is heterogeneous.I would like to see how this teacher would teach history in the purely tactile and kinesthetic mode. At some point there has to be exposure to words, either by reading or listening. It's also dubious that people can be pigeonholed into one mode to the exclusion of other modes.
We know that there are seven separate and distinct learning modalities.
Kindly tell us how you will differentiate your teaching so that the tactile, auditory, visual, and kinetic [sic] learners will come away with the same knowledge as the readers and writers.
I also find it ironic that on the one hand educationists rail against expository instruction and on the other hand they show concern for "auditory" learners.
See here for a link to Willingham's debunking of modality theory. In Willingham's priceless observation, students learn best when content is presented in the subject's best modality.
