Understanding Personality Styles: A Key to Effective Teaching

Understanding Personality Styles: A Key to Effective Teaching is a 10-episode, video training program that was designed to help educators become more effective in their classrooms. Five hours of broadcast-quality video simplify years of research on teaching and learning styles and show how this information can be used with students of all ages.

Paramount Pictures Originally produced for a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures and subsequently broadcast over public television, the series was created for teachers, school administrators, counselors and trainers. But it is also ideal for the vast audience of non-professional educators who work to teach other people on a regular basis. Even though the series focuses on teaching elementary, middle and high school students, the ideas taught are applicable to learners of any age.

This program is intended to help any individual who wants to learn how to be a more effective educator or communicator. Consequently, we designed the series so that it can be used as a self-study tool as well as a group training program. In fact, it is an ideal supplement for teacher development courses, teacher in-service training meetings and professional development courses.

Reference will be made throughout the video to content from the Video Guidebook. This 63-page PDF document summarizes each program segment and offers suggestions for training and application.
