What is the most effective way for any person to learn something? There are multiple factors! None would argue that a person’s ability to learn is affected by their cognitive ability, emotional maturity, and multiple other factors. When it comes to children’s ministry, it’s important to understand this concept when teaching Bible stories and spiritual concepts. When making disciples of kids, it’s important that we understand how they learn.
Here’s what you’ll hear today:
- The difference between “closely-graded” and “broadly-graded”
- Why it’s important to use curriculum that aims at each age-group
