About This Book
Initially published in 1985, Marching to Different Drummers was one of the first sources to pull together information on what was a newly flourishing topic in education. Now, more than a decade later, this revised and expanded edition takes a fresh look at the subject.
Among the new chapters are a discussion of the importance of knowledge about students' culture, learning styles in light of recent discoveries about the functioning of the brain, and how learning styles relate to Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences.
Part I defines style and looks at the history of style research. Part II describes applications of style in seven areas, illustrated through the research models of Carl Jung, Herman A. Witkin, Walter Barbe and Raymond Swassing, Rita Dunn and Kenneth Dunn, Anthony Gregorc, Bernice McCarthy, and Howard Gardner. Part III identifies common questions and discusses implementation and staff development. A comprehensive annotated bibliography sets the stage for further study.
Authors Pat Burke Guild and Stephen Garger have spent nearly 25 years studying styles, applying its research, teaching about styles, and listening to students and educators talk about styles. Their extensive experience in teacher education over the past decade grounds the theory in the second edition of Marching to Different Drummers with a practicality that all educators will value.
