Comparative study of the impact of teacher’s thinking and learning styles upon their teaching style
Argument: To teach for a successful intelligence, according to Sternberg, means to integrate and to valorise the creative and practical skills of the students, alongside with their analytical and memorizing skills, allowing them to valorise their intellectual qualities, by offering them a variety of ways to encode information (analytical, creative and practical activities) which facilitates memorizing the proposed materials. Objectives:The way the teacher prefers to use his cognitive abilities (thinking style) influences his preference for certain learning situations (learning style), with impact upon his personal style to organize and to use teaching methods (teaching style). In this sense, we proposed to build a questionnaire to identify the teaching style used by the teacher in the classroom, according to the theory of Sternberg and to surprise the relationship between “thinking style-learning styles” of the teachers.
