Learn more about the Bible Games Workshop in the Rotation Model.

In the Rotation Model, kids focus on one major story for four to five weeks in a row, -each week through a different creative medium and teacher. This deepens the student's understanding and memory of the lesson, while adding a sense of anticipation and freshness each week. 
Teachers stay put in the workshop of their strength during the story rotation, while a "Shepherd" rotates each week with the kids. This allows the teacher to adjust and improve their lesson, and dramatically cuts down on their weekly prep time. Learn more about the Model.
