Sidebars_aboutproj
This project will help fifth grade students at Rosedale Elementary understand and implement their learning styles; auditory, visual and kinesthetic. Teachers are already aware of the different ways of learning, but the students remain uninformed. This project will not only teach these students the way that they learn, but it will also give them suggestions on how to get the most out of education. This quote summarizes our projects intent, "You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives." – Clay P. Bedford
