Learning Styles


Some have considered learning styles to be a factor influencing the L2 learning process, while others consider learning styles to be a neuromyth, pointing to a lack of evidence that students learn better through a self-identified learning style.

Research the topic of learning styles. Will you address learning styles in your instruction of ELLs? Why or why not? Cite resources to support your response.


Compare the English language proficiency or development standards of two states, with one being the state in which you currently or plan to teach. In addition to the standards, explore the proficiency level descriptors.

How do these standards reflect the stages of second language acquisition? How can you orient your students with their English language proficiency levels and provide them with greater control over their own English language proficiency?
