When I was in college, I took a class called Teaching Methods in Ministry. In that class we were assigned a book that talked about the various learning styles that students have. Some learn really well through simply listening to a lecture. Others need to see visuals. Still others greatly benefit from hands-on projects. By teaching in ways that incorporate all of these different learning styles, more of our students will better understand the material and enjoy the process. That’s a good thing!
The author of that book is Marlene LaFever and until the end of tomorrow her other book Creative Teaching Methods is available free in the Kindle, Nook, and ePub formats. Look below for links. Here’s a short blurb about the book:
This book provides a step-by-step plan for effectively using drama, role-play, music, art, and much more in the classroom to reach every one you teach. An outstanding resource for anyone involved with guiding and educating students of all ages.
I haven’t yet had a chance to look at this title, but I remember how useful LaFever’s other book was. Hopefully, this one is also excellent. If you have a chance to read some of it, let me know what you think.
