Choosing How to Learn

Grade Level: 4 - 12 Age Range: 9 - 18 Lesson Length: 1 class

How do students really learn? They have to do it themselves.

A popular internet meme says it best: “Show me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” This quote has been attributed to Benjamin Franklin but, according to The Franklin Institute, this is not true. In any case, this excellent quote clearly expresses the value of inquiry-based learning. Individual learning styles, on the other hand, are a total neuromyth.

In this lesson, students use a matching card game to explore and write about how they learn.
