Super Hero Learning: Reading/Writing Learners

Super Student

Welcome back to our second blog post on different types of learners! As we indulge ourselves in the ideas of Super Heroes mirroring our own students in school, remember that we are all different and even change as we grow older! So while you may have a preference for a certain type of class or learning right now, that may change in the future. Today, we will dive into the world of reading/writing learners.

Reading/Writing Learners stand out as patient students that carve out their own distinct paths within novels and books. These individuals thrive on the written word, finding solace and strength in text-based information. They excel in environments where reading and writing form the cornerstone of learning, and they have a unique ability to transform complex ideas into easily understood text.

So Who Are Reading/Writing Learners?

This means they learn best when information is presented in a textual format, whether it's through books, articles, essays, or written instructions. These learners have a knack for absorbing information by reading and reinforcing their knowledge by writing. They're keen to pick up on new words and the unfamiliar. Their affinity for the written word is not just about preference but about finding a deep connection and understanding through text. They scope out intricacies that others may glance over as they read and parse through information. Raising question while remaining aware of their own understanding, also known as metacognition, a skill that goes unnoticed quite a bit throughout schooling but is profoundly important.

Strengths and Skills

  • Comprehension and Retention: They excel at understanding and remembering information that is read or written.
  • Expression and Communication: They possess a strong ability to articulate thoughts, arguments, and ideas effectively through writing.
  • Critical Thinking: They are adept at analyzing written content, critiquing concepts, and synthesizing new ideas from textual information.
  • Attention to Detail: Their focused approach to reading and writing fosters a keen eye for detail in text structure, grammar, and syntax.

Preferred Classes and Subjects

English Literature and Language Arts are natural fits, offering a classroom where they can immerse themselves in novels, poetry, and essays. History and Social Studies also appeal to them, as these subjects require extensive reading and often involve written reports or essays to convey understanding. Creative Writing and Journalism classes provide an outlet for their expressive capabilities, allowing them to craft stories, articles, and other written works. In the realm of sciences, they may gravitate towards subjects like Biology or Psychology, where there's a significant amount of reading involved and opportunities to engage through lab reports and research papers.
