Well done! I learned so much!

So I am gearing up to homeschool my children and this book seemed like a good asset so that I could learn better how to identify their learning styles. I struggled in school with areas where people taught outside of my strengths and it was good foe me, but I didn’t always know how to best study or take in information and it made learning hard. I want to help my kids and also help myself be able to make learning fun and meet them where they have needs and meet them where they need challenges. And this book gives great insight to that in a simple and easy to understand way, plus also points you to further resources. A great asset to your personal library, especially homeschool moms!

A fun 'how to' understand and foster learning

This book provides valuable information about how children deal with new information as they grow and develop, which also lends to pratical application for understanding adult behavior. It explains different learning styles with examples of how to best assist the learner in his or her growth, both personal and intellectual. This book is written in an easy to read, interesting format that involves the reader while providing a wealth of information. I feel this book is extremely helpful for parents, teachers and anyone interested in taking an active role in fostering a child's education and development.

What wonderful insight into the learning process!

I am so impressed with the simplicity and utility of Ms. Tobias' book. Suddenly, it makes sense that one kid can learn with the radio on (which always drives me nuts) and another always studies best while lying on the floor. Every teacher should read this book. A home run!

INFORMATIVE!! WELL WRITTEN!! WONDERFUL INSIGHT!!

I can't say enough good things about this book. I feel every parent should be given one in the hospital and every teacher should be required to read it before certification. Tobias' insight and explanations of learning styles saved me from pulling my hair out (or having it all turn gray) with my wonderfully bright, definitely analytical/structual son. Her ten comandments for each style helps the reader see what affects, both bad and good, a person's actions can have on different learning styles. Her suggestions on various approaches to learning have opened a whole new world for both my son and myself. I believe this book offers insight that will allow EVERY student to be successful.

A "MUST READ" for parents/educators and co-workers!

'The Way They Learn' is an excellent book on the learning styles of all children AND adults. It is written so that parents can understand it and begin to identify and search out the strengths of both their children and themselves. Ms. Tobias is careful to warn parents of the dangers of having children inaccurately labled as having a learning disability, when in fact it may be that the child simply has a different learning style than both his teacher and/or parent. No matter what learning style your child may have... when all is said and done, they are to be held accountable for the end result. I may need absolute quiet to concentrate on my homework, while my sister needs that stereo going and food to munch. If both our assignments are completed on time... then 'that was the point!' I am not a 'reader', but I read this book in one night after having the good fortune of hearing Ms. Tobias speak in Northern New Jersey this weekend. My husband and I have one daughter, we work full-time and have taught Bible classes for many grade school ages over the past 10 years. Having read this book we feel it will help us better understand and be able to more effectively deal with our daughter and our co-workers. It will also help us to be sure we are reaching all styles in our classroom rather than just concentrating on the 'majority'. Ms. Tobias is an excellent speaker as she is both insightful and entertaining. I highly recommend both her book and the opportunity to hear her speak.

Putting learning styles into practice for teachers.

Tobias's book, "The Way They Learn" is a well structured composite of the five most useable theories of learning styles. Being an experienced teacher, and having focused on my students' styles of learning over the past years, I have seen a remarkable increase in student involvement in the learning process when the activity is matched to the learning style of the child. The introductory chapters give a good foundation for understanding the learning style models, but I particulary like parents to read and discuss with me the chapters on how we concentrate, how we remember, and how we understand. Parents are often amazed that their children can learn very easily in a completely different environment than they need to focus and concentrate. This book not only gives the basics, but along the way gives lots of good tips for working with children on specific learning problem areas. All teachers and parents should know this research exists and is accurately useful.
