Ann Is Auditory, Part 2
By Patti Hutchison
1 Ann had been trying different ways to study since she had talked to Mr. Ellis in the learning center last week. Already she was feeling better about school. She had even gotten an A on some of her quizzes! Listening to audiobooks had really helped her. She decided to go back and see if Mr. Ellis had any more tips for her.
2 "Hello, Ann," Mr. Ellis greeted her. "How are you doing?"
3 "I'm doing great!" Ann exclaimed. "I've been trying some of those study tricks you showed me for my auditory learning style. They really work! I've even gotten some A's on my reading quizzes. I was wondering if you could tell me some more things I can do."
4 "Sure, I have lots of tips for auditory learners," Mr. Ellis told Ann. "Come with me."
5 Mr. Ellis showed Ann some charts on the wall. He told her they were tips for studying in each learning style. "The middle one is your style - auditory," he said.
6 Ann studied the chart. She read it aloud to herself. She was amazed at some of the tips it gave. The chart said to use a voice recorder as much as possible. She should listen to the lecture but also record it. That way, she could play it back later and listen to it again. She told Mr. Ellis she thought that was a very good idea.
7 "Of course, you'll have to have your teacher's permission to record the class. And you should do it in a way that won't disturb the other students. The best way would be to sit up front with a small voice recorder. Just turn it on at the beginning and turn it off at the end. That way you won't be pushing buttons all the time and causing a fuss," Mr. Ellis advised. Ann thought that was good advice.
8 The chart also said for Ann to record her own voice. If she can't find an audiobook, she can read a story while using the voice recorder and listen to later. She can also dictate an essay into the recorder and play it back while she writes it. Once she gets the essay written, she should read it aloud. That way it will be easier for her to find mistakes.
