From: Volume 3, Issue 1: Spring 2006 Pages 27-42


The article examines the important connections between how well students learn new information in response to the classroom environment and scoial interaction among learners and teachers. Educational research in the field of learning style theory has demonstrated significant improvement in learning achievement when students are taught according to their learning style. Professors and Christian educators can respond to the needs of their students' differing learning styles by incorporating various teaching methods in their classrooms. A Biblical basis for incorporating learning style theory into the Christian education environment can be seen by briefly considering some ways in which Jesus demonstrated mastery of these instructional methods as He taught invdividuals, small groups, and large crowds.
