  1. Define learning styles.
    Learning styles could be further defined as unique qualities that affect the student's ability to acquire information, to interact with teachers and classmates and, in general, participate in learning opportunities. The concept of learning styles is further complicated bythe acknowledgement that a student's learning style may change,depending on the structure of the class, the learning material, the teacher, or the student's previous exposure to different types of learning situations (and his or her ability to integrate different styles).
  2. Describe several learning styles.

    • Analytic (field independent) learner
    • This type of learner:
    • Prefers to have the sequential steps to the
