We just got done reviewing and reformatting the Joshua, Judges, Ruth forum.

"Rotation" in the Workshop Rotation Model, refers to how we move students each week to a new creative workshop (classroom). All workshops share the same story for a 4 or 5 week "rotation." Repeating the story through different teaching media taps into the variety of ways our students learn, creates a sense of anticipation, and the repetition improves Bible literacy. Teachers stay in specific workshops for the rotation, adjusting the same lesson each week for a new group. This reduces the preparation load and gives them more time to be creative and naturally improve their lesson. Learn more about the Model.

Pictured Above: Example of a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.

You can add more grade groups by adding additional workshops, such as, Computer, Cooking, or Storytelling. Preschool or teens can use the "open" workshop slots. Additional age groups, different workshops and weeks on one story can easily be added. See more schedule examples.
