Abstract: David A. Kolb’s research (1984, 2005, 2007) on learning styles identifies four learning style preferences based on how learners prefer to grasp and process information within the learning cycle. This quasi-experimental research study examines the achievement of preservice teachers in a reading methods course when advice is provided based on students’ identified learning styles. Advice connected to prompts including knowledge of concepts, terms, prior knowledge, and steps necessary to complete assignment tasks was provided for ‘grasping’ and ‘processing’ processes of the learning cycle. Data, including students’ responses to project inventory prompts, student assignment scores, and questionnaires following use of advice software, are being collected and analyzed to explore the value of advice specific to learning styles in supporting student achievement in reading methods courses.
