Abstract (Spanish)

As a result of this work, it was found that Joseph Smith used no one method in particular with which to teach. Instead, he used a variety of methods. He was conscious of people, their learning capacities and needs. Accordingly, he adapted his methods to the people, the situation, the information or skill to be taught and the needs of the occasion.

The techniques which he used, including when he used them, appear to conform to present pedagogical description of appropriateness and effectiveness.

Joseph Smith delved into practically every conceivable process or method for learning. He was not content to teach external behavioral skills alone, but was determined to teach thinking and reasoning skills also. Through his instruction, he desired that the whole person be taught. The feigned appearance of learning was not sufficient for Smith. Superficiality was dissolved through total commitment to and application of instruction.
