  • Introduction: It is rightly said by Matshona Dhliwayo that “A garden’s beauty never lies in one flower” even it is true in the context of a classroom. A classroom consists of variety of students. It is difficult to address and explain these diversified students.Diverse needs of learners, matching instructions for diverse learning styles can be difficult.In earlier times it was more difficult because of the use of traditional method for teaching but now-a-days various teaching and learning styles are practiced while teaching. These styles help in fulfilling basic needs of all students.Reaching all students with a variety of learning styles is necessary for full academic growth.

        The term “learning styles” speaks to the understanding that every student learns differently. Technically, an individual’s learning style refers to the preferential way in which the student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information. For example, when learning how to make the abacus, some students understand the process by following verbal instructions, while others have to physically manipulate the abacus themselves. This notion of individualized learning styles has gained widespread recognition in education theory and classroom management strategy. Individual learning styles depend on cognitive, emotional and environmental factors, as well as one’s prior experience. In other words: everyone’s different. It is important for educators to understand the differences in their students’ learning styles, so that they can implement best practice strategies into their daily activities, curriculum and assessments.
