Review and Giveaway - Not Just Your Average Genius-DVD featuring Diana Waring

Reviewed by Christine Bullock

Diana Waring Average Genius DVDWhat kind of duck are you?  Do you like to sit and watch the clouds go by, or listen to the sounds of the crickets chirping as night settles.  Maybe you are the kind who instead of watching the fireworks, are popping up and down with each blast.  Diana Waring reminds us that every person is designed by God to have their own way of taking in information. Fearfully and wonderfully made, we should learn to appreciate the genius of each other.

Understanding that there are different ways that minds can process information can open locked doors in your homeschooling.  I know it did for ours when our youngest son came on the scene.  Our first son was a visual/semantic learner, a lot like his mom, and the next two were auditory learners like their father.  But our last son was a powder keg of energy in motion and it was not a simple task to figure out how to keep him learning.  Hearing teaching about kinesthetic learners helped me realize that we just needed to harness that style as he worked academically. 

This DVD is a good tool for gaining a general understanding of learning modes, and styles. With her typical humor and wit, Diana explains how very differently our minds may be from our children’s and shares tips on how to use this individuality.  During her presentation she even attempts to engage the parents who are listening via their own various learning styles.  Well done!

God made us all different.
We live in an amazing age with LOTS of resources. My main thing that works.. is keep on trying until something clicks. For me it is to do it with LOVE, and keep the anger at bay.

My children are still young (7, 2, and 1 month) so we haven't really encountered different learning styles. My oldest seems to have an auditory learning style. He hears it once and never seems to forget. (Unless it comes to obedience, then it's a constant reminder.) He is also seems to thrive with schedules and consistency. To keep him from asking the same things 20 times a day, I've written out a daily schedule, meal plan for the week, and chore list and posted them all where he can see. Then he can see what happens and when. Of course, that means I need to stay on task and keep myself to the schedule, too.

My daughter learns well with workbooks. She actually enjoys them. I hear a lot about getting away from workbooks, but I can't feel guilty about a tool that works well for her.

I cannot say that I have mastered this, or even really done well with this. It's just too easy and natural to lump them all together and teach them the way I would want to learn. It's a daily struggle to keep this all in mind and teach them in the way that they were individually designed. However, that's one of the beauties of homeschooling - you get to try and try again and have them at home to work together on figuring it all out.

I guess I would add to what I already wrote: for a couple of my kids it works well for them to draw pictures while I'm reading stories. I also have a kinestic learner who has a particular time of day he concentrates better than others so if I'm patient with him and wait until that time he does much better at focusing on what he needs to do.

My youngest is an auditory learner and there's tons of "learning songs" out there. She picks up songs really fast. My oldest is a mix. Using visuals and manipulatives seems to help her grasp new concepts. I think using a variety of methods is good, just so you're covering all your bases. For example, I have them look at and say aloud math facts on flash cards so they're learning it through their eyes and ears.

I've got two learners that need to move and need to have variety. Bouncing on a 'yoga' ball for a chair while doing math, or taking frequent breaks to jump on the mini trampoline or bike a couple of laps around the house really help them to stay focused.

One of my boys is very conversational and seems to need to talk about everything he is doing while doing it, while another boy needs quiet to focus. I've found it best to separate them. ;-)

The premise of the entire thing is that you fold the cup in half and insert it much like you would a tampon. There is a chance she may “feel” or “notice that she is wearing a cup” depending on the stroke she does, I see no reason why it shouldn’t hold up fine.
