Maximizing Learning: Because students have different learning styles, you may first want to orally summarize the information you will be covering that day. Then you can read the related section in the textbook or trade book. Finally, have students complete the activity. This not only exposes visual, aural, and artistic learners to the information through their strongest learning style, but it also allows them to review the same information several times!
