The course will explore the four temperament types as delineated in the quadrant model described by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, based on the Myers-Briggs personality types. Furthermore, these types will be explored through other sensory and cognitive models such as:
• True Colors (Lowry)--spectrum/variation of color types
• Modality preference (Dunn) -- auditory, visual, kinesthetic-tactual
• Organizational style (Gregorc) -- sequential, random
• Conceptual style (Gregorc) -- abstract, concrete
• Multiple Intelligences (Gardner) -- logical, visual/spatial, verbal, interpersonal, intra-personal, musical, naturalistic and kinesthetic

The styles of teaching and learning listed above will be especially focused on the individual teacher knowing and understanding his/her style and the impact of his/her style on student expectations, classroom management and lesson design and delivery. Course content will consider student thinking skills, cognitive processing, cooperative learning, conflict resolution, communication, and leadership.
