Our goal is to find a science and/or social studies curriculum format that is a good match for 7th-8th grade students with each of four different learning styles. A few prior studies allowed us to identify what type of learners, in MBTI terms, underperformed on the state achievement test. Other prior studies allowed us to identify a curriculum format especially likely to be effective in holding the attention of that type of learner. This study was a test to see if we could predict which of two curricula covering the same (solar system) material, the type of learner at risk would prefer.
