THE POWER OF ORAL/VISUAL LEARNING

According to the International Orality Network, the vast majority of children worldwide have basic or below basic literacy skills.  They are oral/visual learners because of their limited literacy skills. Animation increases retention dramatically and provides a powerful and effective way for these children to learn.  Our curriculum provides a combination of Bible study, animation, crafts and teaching aids in order to give these children the best opportunity to learn biblical truth as it relates to their unique struggles.   Learn more here: http://issacharinitiative.org/orphans-forgotten-unreached/

 
 

The Curriculum

Realizing that children are oral/visual learners, each of these lessons use multiple methods for hands-on learning!  All of the crafts, games and visuals are designed to emphasize the biblical truth being taught.  May God richly bless your teaching!
