Visual aids have played an important part in teaching methods of both the public schools and the church schools of today. Teachers would be under a great handicap if they could not use some kind of a visual aid to guide their teaching, especially in the beginners, primary, and junior departments of both the church and public schools. Visual aids are used in the public schools in the intermediate and high school age groups, but they have not been used in these departments in the church to a very large extent. The church has not provided adequate materials for this age group, and the average teacher is unable to find visual aid helps. The youth department needs visual aids because 80% of knowledge is gained through the use of the eyes.
The purpose of this study is to discover sources of visual material and to analyze the possible use of these materials in the training of youth in the church. This study is not just limited to the Sunday school, but all the work of young people in the church is included. These agencies would include the Sunday school, Christian Endeavor, or Youth Fellowship, youth prayer meetings, and other youth functions of the church.
