Freedom to Learn According to Our Own G-d Given Way

Freedom is … learning according to your way. Shlomo Hamelech (King Solomon) stated these wise words: “Chanoch l’naar al pi darko…”– Train the youth according to one’s way..” G-d blessed each one of us with different ways to learn. Some of us are visual learners, some of us auditory; some of us learn best through writing, some through hands on creation. One of the best books that I’ve seen that addresses different learning styles AND provides amazing techniques is Jeffrey Freed and Laurie Parsons’s “Right Brained Children in a Left Brained World.” I’ve used his suggestions for my kids and the results are phenomenal. Right brained kids can memorize spelling words by taking a ‘snapshot’ with their mind instead of sounding out or memorizing the words. It’s thinking in pictures instead of language. They get such confidence when they ace their tests after having spent only 10 minutes studying. This is freedom.
