At last a book that suggests activities for different learner types, from visual and auditory to kinesthetic and analytic learners. This slim volume couldn’t have come out at a better time. Instructors have recently become increasingly aware of the shortcomings of the one-size-fits-all approach and here Marjorie Rosenberg has included wonderful ideas that are tailormade to suit all kinds of learners.

Peter Stange, Amazon reviewer

Creating Activities for Different Learner Types…is not your typical resources book filled with one-size-fits-all classroom tasks for ESL learners. More than that, it’s a neatly organized ‘how to’ book especially designed to help teachers and materials writers to unleash their imagination and create their own activities in order to cater for six different learning styles, as the author herself defines this book. Each chapter of this book functions as a building block that leads the reader from identifying different learner types among our students into creating activities and materials that are suitable for the following different learner types: Visual, auditory, kinesthetic emotional, kinesthetic motoric, global, and analytical learners. This is an easy to read book, so it’s suitable for both experienced and beginner ESL teachers and materials writers.
