Reason # 3 - Greater knowledge transfer
R.D. Farkus' 2003 study found that multisensory instructional resources significantly
influence academic achievement, lead to improved attitudes towards learning,
increase empathetic response, and indisputably yields a greater transfer
of skills. Farkus says, "Schools <teachers> that provide instruction
through learning-style methods, therefore, offer greater opportunities
for students to succeed than do schools <teachers> that practice
traditional teaching and learning, which seems to be an inferior approach,"
Reason # 4 - Improved attitudes towards learning
Additionally, "students indicated significantly more positive attitudes when instructed
with a multisensory rather than traditional approach, and performance
was higher on the transfer of skills when students were instructed with
a multisensory instructional method rather than with a traditional approach,"
