20201016T1350 20201016T1450 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh True Colors, a pivotal technique to understand students' learning styles and enhance student-teacher communication

True Colors is a personality trait spectrum designed by Don Lowry in 1978, which classifies four basic learning styles using the colors blue, orange, gold and green to identify the strengths and challenges of these core personality types. Since everyone learns in a unique way, True Colors (TC) suggest teachers how they can manage lessons and teaching styles on students' needs, rather than requiring all students to adjust to a teacher's personality. This presentation aims at introducing the implementation of True Colors technique to enhance students learning motivation in their EFL classes based on the four colors. Firstly, the personality types will be determined by conducting a survey amongst participants then dividing them into their associated color group. Secondly, the TC description will be displayed to ensure participants know how to identify characteristics of themselves and others. Next, the presentation will be featured with Poster Gallery Activity in which teachers discuss how to apply TC into teaching English. Last but not least, some implications for teaching are also mentioned, including some teaching practices designed to fit a wide range of classroom contexts such as Concept Continuum, Storytelling, My Name, and Gallery.
