Learning Styles and Reading

Abstract [en]

Learning styles have been the subject of educational discussion since 1967. The Dunn and Dunn model has been world leading ever since. The Dunn and Dunn theory states that each individual learns differently and that school can help the students’ results by adapting the teaching to each student’s learning style and perceptual preference. This study focuses on learning styles and especially its connection to reading. When, where and why a student chooses to read is of importance and can affect the reading outcome. To get insight into how students read, this study looks at what type of setting students choose to read in when they do not read in school. It also examines students’ attitudes. The study also discusses how learning style-based learning can help teachers in their work.
