Study in Style

Study in Style

 

God made you special, including the way you learn best. Read Psalm 139 about how he created you in your mother’s womb. Part of you being special is the way you learn. You are wired to learn best in one of six ways, called learning styles. You can even consider these learning styles as you choose a Bible.  Check them out to find your style and try the ideas that will help you learn best.

Auditory (learns by hearing or while listening to music)

  • Read aloud.
  • Listen to a classmate talk about the lesson.
  • Listen to music that matches mood of the passage.

Visual (learns by sight and reading or studying charts)

  • Read and then doodle as you reflect or draw the lesson.
  • Close your eyes and picture the passage.
  • Use maps and charts to check out locations and charts to visualize facts.

Tactile (learns by hands-on activities/touch, including writing notes)

  • Write out your thoughts.
  • If possible, touch objects similar to ones described in the passage.
  • Draw the scenes described.

Energetic/ kinesthetic (learns with movement and interaction)

  • Act out the passage.
  • Study while walking with a friend.
  • Read then exercise while reflecting on the words.

Deep Thinker or Analytical (learns by analyzing and thinking through things)

  • Ask questions then search for the answers.
  • Go through the 5-W’s on what you read – who, what, when, where, and why.
  • Ask yourself how to use the information.
  • Connect facts with your own life.

Social (learns through language, global awareness, and interacting with others)

  • Check out how people in history or a story related to one another.
  • Study with a friend.
  • Talk about your lesson at dinner.
