There are several different learning styles. Learning styles include the ways that students learn, process, retain information, and behave. Some of these include the following: visual, auditory, and tactile. Catering to a variety of these ensures that all students will be able to be successful learners. It is especially important for the low achieving students who generally prefer to learn as one or more peers assist them, and as they are provided many hands-on experiences.

Childrens literature is a valuable resource for teachers to turn to as they develop lesson plans to teach students about values. Social skills and effective education can be accomplished through an interdisciplinary approach.
