<< My own students are not always the high achievers, grade-wise. >>
Frequently the above is true because they have not been asked to demonstrate
their learning in a way that is best for them. Most of the time the learning
in other classes is demonstrated through a written, frequently multiple
choice, short answer test. Seldom are they asked to perform in any other way.
So of course more spatially or visually intelligent students are being
neglected as well as the kinesthetic, musically, etc. And, of course, if the
previous situation exists, the information is only offered in one way.
