Five Laws of Learning
The Five Laws of Learning are related to basic Biblical principles.
The pupil is placed on a LEVEL of curriculum where he can best perform. LEVEL acknowledges that all students are different. So we, being many... Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us.... (Romans 12:5-6)
The pupil sets reasonable and appropriate GOALS to be achieved in a reasonable period of time. GOALS reflect good judgment. For which of you... sitteth mot down first, and counteth the cost . . . ? (Luke 14:28)
The pupil receives MOTIVATION through encouragement and support and achieves CONTROL through guidance and discipline in order to assimilate, use, and experience the educational material. MOTIVATION is that inner desire prompted by the concerned supervisor/tutor. And whatsoeverye do, do it heartly, as to the Lord.... (Colossians 3:23) CONTROL acknowledges the necessity for discipline, guidance, and responsible leadership. Train up a child in the way he should go. ... (Proverbs 22:6)
The pupil's learning must be MEASURED, which relates to accountability. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.... (Luke 12:48)
The pupil's learning receives recognition and REWARDS for its effort and significance. . . . reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)
