Abstract

This paper discusses the correlation between young learners’ writing performance and their learning styles when power-point was used in teaching writing skills. This study focused on the sensory learning styles which comprises visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile learning styles (perceptual learning style). A longitudinal study was first conducted followed by a quasi-experiment in a Malaysian primary school. Participants’ learning styles were measured and writing performance assessed. The analysis of results shows that overall there was a positive correlation between the pre- and post-test scores in that those who did well in the pre-test also did well in the post-test. There was also a significant difference between the pre-and post-test scores. However, when each style was examined, the study revealed that the correlation was not found to be significant.
