Organizing Discipleship

2020-12-09T10:01:48-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett & Cami Summers In Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin says, "Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it's not all mixed up." It has also been said this way, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Both statements express great truth, and one of the problems [...]

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 1

2017-05-08T20:15:40-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett Over the years I have gone to MANY teacher training workshops. What I found interesting is that most of them simply focused on expanding a teacher's arsenal of methods. After many years of studying the subject of how we learn and process new information, I have discovered that when you lay out all [...]

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 2

2017-05-08T20:17:49-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett In order to understand how to teach, learn, or even preach effectively, we must understand how people process information. This is the subject of learning styles. Most teaching and preaching are done according to one's own learning style. By doing this we miss reaching those who do not learn the same way we [...]

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 5 – The Analytic Learner

2017-04-06T15:06:28-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett The Imaginative Learner that we looked at last time asks the question - Why? Why must we learn this information. Likewise, the Analytic Learn asks his/her own question - What? What are the facts here? What information can I learn from this lesson? This learner is most like the PCA as a denomination. [...]

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 6 – The Common Sense Learner

2017-04-06T15:04:55-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett Don't you just love it when you know someone who can take all the information you have and make something useful with it? This is the strength of the Common Sense Learner. He is able to take all the facts gathered so accurately and sequentially by the Analytic Learner and put them to [...]

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 7 – The Dynamic Learner

2017-04-06T15:01:56-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett Of the four learning styles, the dynamic learner (DL) is the most disliked by teachers. Why? Because teachers do not understand them, or know how to work with them. I hope, after you have read this, you will have a much better appreciation for these misunderstood learners, and know more about how to [...]

Article by Dennis Bennett We have looked at all four learning styles. Did you find where you fit? Even more, have you learned to appreciate that not everyone learns in the same way you learn?

How We Teach and How They Learn, Part 11 – Learning Styles and Questions

2017-04-06T14:55:49-05:00

Article by Dennis Bennett Many manuscripts are submitted to CEP for publication consideration. I like to read the Bible studies, but I don't start with the written sections, rather, I start with examining the questions. I am convinced if the questions are not written well; the rest is just commentary and not Bible study. Every question contains [...]
