There are multiple intelligences supported by different learning styles (Gardner). People are likely to be some combination of these intelligences, rather than just one, and an effective educator must strive to teach every student in a way that makes sense to that student. Students must be taught how to think critically using a spectrum of higher order thinking skills (Bloom) which will allow them to make inferences and connections beyond what is placed in front of them. Students are informed by the experiences they bring with them into the classroom and the teacher must facilitate their learning (Rogers). An educator must not simply accept a behavior or response at face value, they should look for the reason(s) behind it.
