Making the Personality Connection in Your Classroom

Alice M. Fairhurst and Lisa L. Fairhurst

Improve education by exploring teaching and learning styles

Also included are specific steps for handling conflict, academic problems, and interpersonal issues as well as suggestions for matching instructional materials and methods to learning styles.
