Nearly everyone has heard of the theory of “learning styles,” writes Greg Toppo, but fewer might know the extent to which this concept has been debunked in scientific journals. In fact, the number of times that educators reference this theory appears to have remained steady or risen in the years since the evidence debunking it first gained momentum.
