Discover Your Child's Learning Style : Children Learn in Unique Ways - Here's the Key to Every Child's Learning Success
The assessments are uncomplicated and almost too simplistic. And the writers convey an idealism that may not fly in some schools, suggesting that parents encourage teachers to adapt to their child's learning style, accepting, for instance, a video-taped report instead of a written one from a visual learner who conveys his talents better on screen than on paper. Understanding the assessments' results and applying them involves careful--and lengthy--reading. Still, a parent who follows the workbook from cover to cover could gain insight into why a child is struggling in school and head off the labeling of yet another "learning misfit." --Jodi Mailander Farrell

Learning Styles: Reaching Everyone God Gave You to Teach
Or why Toni can't sit still? Or why Alex loves work sheets?
Or why Jordan is always trying something new?
Learning Styles answers these questions and more. Effective learning follows a natural four-step process that answers these four questions:
WHY DO I NEED THIS?
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT MY NEED?
HOW DOES WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES ACTUALLY WORK?
HOW WILL I USE WHAT I HAVE LEARNED?
By answering each of these questions, we will appeal to the four learning styles: Imaginative, Analytic, Common Sense, and Dynamic. A learning style is the way in which a person sees or perceives things best and then uses that knowledge. When we understand learning styles 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.

CENTER FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
. . . 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.

Marlene D. LeFever is Manager of Ministry Relations for David C. Cook Church Ministries, holds a master of Christian education and is a frequent speaker at Sunday School conventions, writers' conferences, and professional organizations. Editor of Teacher Touch, a quarterly letter of affirmation for Sunday School teachers, Marlene has authored over ten books, including Creative Teaching Methods (Cook), Creative Hospitality (Tyndale) and Is Your To Do List About To Do You In?
Every Christian educator can benefit from this bookteachers and administrators alike, whether new to the task or with years of experience. Based on the premise that different persons learn in a variety of ways, all legitimate, the author shows clearly how teachers may recognize students who learn in these different ways, plan and teach lessons that involve all of them through the use of a wide variety of appropriate methods, and at the same time reinforce each student's sense of achievement. The same understandings are applied to leader recruitment and development. The book sparkles with appropriate anecdotes, live cases, and practical suggestions. It will be useful both in workshops and for personal study.

When the stateswoman of Christian Education puts pen to her magnum opus, the benefits are all ours: teachers, students, and administrators. What a mother lode of resources this is! Imaginative, thorough, engaging, and accessiblecharacteristic of Marlene's own teaching style. Lights will come on in your head, and you'll never be the same teacher, or student, again.
Jerry B. Jenkins
Author and Writer-in-Residence

As Gardner broadened the world of teaching by identifying multiple intelligences which learners utilize in the process of learning, so Marlene LeFever has enhanced Christian education by identifying the presence of four kinds of learners in our classrooms. Good teaching comes from remembering that it's like not to know. Marlene has made us aware of what it is like "not to know" when what is being taught is outside our learning frame. She has given us insight and tools for building learners' esteem and for realizing their learning potential. As anyone who knows Marlene would anticipate she has done such with rousing enthusiasm, captivating flair, and catalytic creativity. This book will enable the exploration of whole new frontiers of learning for those who teach in the church.
