Emerging Research in Learning Styles
1. Collect at least eight (8) research studies (1997–2000 only) that used the Dunn and Dunn Learning-Style Model but were not included in Research on the Dunn and Dunn Model (2000).
2. Learning-styles research is branching out into fields other than education. Explain how it can and has been applied to business, law and court reporting, medicine, music, nursing, religion, sonography, and technology (any four of these fields).

Activity Alternatives

Reporting Alternatives

1. Read the following texts and any additional research sources available— but particularly those cited in Research on the Dunn and Dunn Model. Develop a Network Newsletter for publication, describing how learning-style research and applications are being expanded nationally and internationally.

1. Submit this issue of the Newsletter. You may work with one or two classmates and, if the issue is excellent, I will excuse you from the final examination.
