Perspectives on Thinking, Learning, and Cognitive Styles

By Robert J. Sternberg; Li-Fang Zhang | Go to book overview

an important role to play in the improvement of society and that everyone's role can be enhanced if we provide all students with the opportunities, resources, and encouragement to develop their talents as fully as possible. From this point of view, the diversity of our student population is a strength rather than a weakness. From this diversity come various stylistic differences in adaptation to learning tasks and social environments. Properly developed and used, they can have high functional and adaptive values.
