Agree with Mr. Calcasola , Mrs. Anthony, and Mr. Chelsea.
It's important to address students learning styles. Visual learners, auditory learners, reading/writing type learners and kinesthetic learners should all be considered when presenting lessons. The military has used this concept for years.
In my experince, using Multi-modal approach clearly has produced excellent results, specially with international students. In some countries, students are supposed to seat, receive information and only talk when asked. You can see the classroom environment change when you teach a lesson, provide visual aids, PE's, and have students discussions on the lessons taught.
