The Education Buzz Edition #5

Bellringers' Carnival of Education Buzz #5 offers a florid pattern in gaudy colours from which I pick a flower to soothe my worried mind: there is zero scientific evidence for the Learning Styles Fad. Treat yourself at Bellringers'!

I saw this report about a month ago. I can't say that I voraciously read educational material, but somehow this floated my way and found it very interesting on several levels.

Particularly interesting is how our district "experts" somehow haven't seen it and continue telling us to address learning styles.

Since I have 40 seniors in my first period class addressing everyone's style would be more descriptive of a circus act than an actual lesson.
