Modes of Learning



 
“God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well” (Romans 12:6, NLT). Keep this text in mind when you’re teaching the lesson.

There are many ways to learn, and everyone learns in different ways. We each have some stronger and some weaker learning styles.

The temptation of teachers is to assume students all learn best in the style in which they themselves do. These modes of learning or types of intelligence are not mutually exclusive, but keeping in mind certain categories can help you see ways that personalities differ.

The following chart offers a brief overview of some of the styles to keep in mind when teaching.
