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.
This revised and expanded edition takes a fresh look at the subject. The new chapters include discussions on the importance of understanding student 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.
