This research examines the differential effects of two distinct methodologies for writing teaching (syllabic method and global method) in children learning process, according with the cognitive style, in field dependence-independence dimension. The research took place at a public school with children between five and seven years old, students from kinder and first grade. Thanks to the obtained data we find, firstly, that syllabic method tends to favor the learning process in subjects who tend to be field independents and, secondly, that global method tends to be more equitable than syllabic, because it doesnt seeming to favor any cognitive style.
