Studies regarding how adolescents learn have found that the traditional approach of teaching as information or knowledge to be passed on with an emphasis on the mastery of content is not very effective. In view of this, many Christian educators and youth ministry specialists recommend a shift from the traditional methods of teaching the Bible to creative ways of teaching with a focus on active student participation in the teaching-learning process, and on meaning of Bible truths.
The method used to complete this project was a review of representative literature dealing with theories and concepts of teaching and learning, adolescent development, and creative approaches to Bible teaching. A basic framework of creative Bible teaching for Seventh-day Adventist youth ages 13-18 and a seminar to be used in training lay youth leaders and teachers were developed.
This project is expected to provide and equip Seventh-day Adventist lay youth leaders and teachers with a knowledge and understanding of creative Bible teaching principles and concepts which they can use to develop their own creative approaches to Bible teaching.
