About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site
Learn more about the Model
♥ Multiple Intelligence Informed Teaching ♥ Rotation workshops include: video, art, cooking, music, drama, puppets, software, games, music, and more. Rotation.org is a "popsicle craft-free zone."☺
♥ Teachers stay in their workshop during the rotation, adapting the same lesson for a new class each week.♥ This reduces new lesson prep time, and let's them improve their lesson each week.
♥ Rotation focuses on the Major Stories of the Bible (not the minors) ♥ No "one and done" here! Because we teach 9 to 12 major Bible stories a year -each in four to five week "rotations," regular attenders get depth, and irregular attenders are exposed to major scriptures.
Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.
|Week 1||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open|
|Week 2||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6|
|Week 3||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4|
|Week 4||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1|
Rotation schedules are super-flexible. Add a week and a workshop to have a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. Add a fifth row to bring in an additional workshop. See more schedule examples.
