Summary or Abstract
These learning modalities are considered the important sensory channels, or pathways, through which individuals give, receive, and store information. Most students learn with all of their modalities but students have certain strengths and weaknesses in a specific modality (Reiff, 1992). However, for the purpose of this study, I will focus on three of the sensory systems: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic/tactile..

An effective way to influence students' optimal learning potential is by using modality-based instructions. Modality-based instructions is the method of instructing individual students according to their individual learning style thereby producing effective learning outcomes. Studies have shown that identifying students' learning styles, and then providing instruction consistent with that particular style contributes to more effective learning (Claxton and Murrell, 1987). Additionally, information about learning styles can help teachers become more sensitive to the differences students bring to the classroom. The ways in which students process information (Markowicz, 1977) for learning is evidenced by their individual learning styles. A students learning style can also serve as a guide in designing positive learning experiences for students. In order to optimize the students learning potential as well as enabling the teacher to adapt the most appropriate pedagogies, as needed, a comprehensive understanding of learning modalities is essential.

American Sign Language (ASL) is often believed to be a universal language, easy to learn, and, therefore, available to anyone for worldwide communication. However, this is a misconception. Furthermore, because of its signed modality, people often incorrectly assume that ASL is merely a gestural representation of English. However, in actuality, ASL is a fully developed, natural language and one of the world's many signed languages. ASL is not a derivative of English. Although English has influenced it, and indeed ASL contains structure and processes that, the English language does not (Klima and Bellugi, 1979).
