Do you wonder why Connor talks all the time? Or why Kaitlyn has to practice something to learn it? Or why Andrew needs to learn something new everyday? Or why Brittany is always trying something new?
Learning Styles answers these questions and more. Effective learning for children, teens, and adults follows a natural four-step process:
- Why do I need this?
- What does the Bible say about my need?
- How does what the Bible teaches actually work today?
- How will I use what I have learned
When we understand learning styles-imaginative, analytic, common sense, and dynamic-and adjust our teaching or parenting to those styles, we begin reaching everyone God gives us to teach. Learning Styles is full of practical, helpful, and eye-opening information about the different ways kids perceive information and then use that knowledge, as well as how their behavior is often tied to their particular learning style. When we understand learning styles-imaginative, analytic, common sense, and dynamic-and adjust our teaching or parenting to those styles, we begin reaching everyone God gives us to teach.

A wonderful book capable of teaching us how we learn . . . and what to do with all that knowledge once we've learned it. Practical, helpful, and an eye-opening book for all of us in the teaching tradefrom mothers to professors! I heartily recommend this be a must for your bookshelf.
JILL BRISCOE, AUTHOR, SPEAKER
Learning Styles displays Marlene LeFever at her best. Few people see others in terms of their learning capability. Fewer still dedicate themselves to the study of how understanding occurs. Marlene long ago grabbed my attention and admiration with her teaching skills. Her insights deserve thoughtful reading by every teacher and meaningful discussion in every teacher training meeting. Learning should stir up pleasure and she shows us how.

. . . great teachers and preachers throughout the history of the church have realized the importance of answering the why, what, so what, and how questions.... The author has isolated and tied these elements to the teaching context so that their incorporation will be purposeful. Anyone involved in the communication process will be benefitted by Learning Styles....
DR. TONY EVANS, PASTOR
OAK CLIFF BIBLE FELLOWSHIP DALLAS, TEXAS
Easy reading, but not simplistic. Many authors ask hard questions; Marlene dares to suggest answers.... We now have no excuse for careless teaching.
