Use visual and kinesthetic study strategies. Because it is easier to use and understand .
Visual learning style focuses on vision. In visual learning style students, the teacher's teaching methods are better emphasized in the demonstration.
Kinesthetic learning styles involve more movement. Students of this type find it easier to understand something by practicing it.
1. B. Her learning style and the instructor’s teaching style conflict.
While Keisha is doing better when information is presented in a clear manner (names of key figures, dates, major points), the instructor teaches about concepts that are more abstract and wants students to analyze on their own and reach answers that way. Keisha's approach is more direct than the instructor's, and that is causing her trouble.
2. D. Visit the instructor during office hours and explain her difficulties. Work together to find a way to maximize Keisha’s learning despite the differences in their teaching and learning styles.
Keisha's problem is something that definitely can and should be solved. Her visiting the instructor's office would help the instructor understand the issue and give them both an opportunity to find a solution together. The instructor could give Keisha advice, suggest some learning techniques that are a bit different than Keisha's own but are still something she could fulfill. Or, maybe, he could start using a bit different approach, which could make studying easier for other students who have similar issues.
3. B. Stay up all night cramming the night before.
Good sleep is something a student needs before an exam, so cramming all night before it is not a good idea. Besides, it is not probable that she would learn much that way. There are other things she could do, like visiting the instructor or joining a study group.
4. B. Actively take notes while she is listening to lectures and add symbols, charts, or graphs to map out concepts.
Different people have different learning preferences, and as Keisha learns through a visual mode, she should add symbols, charts and graphs to her notes to help her visualize the material and memorize it with more ease. By doing so, she shouldn't have to worry about failing anymore.
