T&D: THE Learning Styles Anti-Bull Movement!


My alma mater continues to promote the false notion of Learning Styles.

Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?


I love KU. I love the origins of the term Jayhawker. I hate their embrace of this Learning Styles nonsense. NEW BORDER WAR.

Learning Styles – taught at Kansas University. It incensed me to no end, that I sent them an email about it years ago. To borrow a phrase, “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” I’m looking at you – @UnivOfKansas BTW I spent many hours inside the William Allen White SoJ building.

Learning Styles Is Bull

Sung to the tune of Alice’s Restaurant.

With apologies to Arlo Guthrie…

You know, if one person, just one person, does it, they may think he’s
Really sick and they won’t like him
And if two people do it, in harmony, they may think they’re both houngans and

And all you gotta do to join is to Sing it the next time it comes around on the guitar…
