Three More Reasons

...why the Rotation Model is better than the traditional model

1. Many kids don't attend every single week, so why change the story each week? Rotation Model teaches the same MAJOR Bible story for several weeks in a row through different media so that regular attenders REALLY learn it, and less frequent attenders are exposes to the major stories of the Bible in an exciting way.

2. Changing the story every week chews up your curriculum budget. By letting teachers prep one lesson and teach it a couple of times (with adjustments) to different groups, we can spend our budgets on something more interesting than teacher booklets.

3. Teachers feel less pressure to squeeze it all in every week. In Rotation, you know you're not the only teacher or week that's covering your story.
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.
