About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized to facilitate those teaching with the Workshop Rotation Model, but our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools.


Learn more about the Model
Our site's members and visitors come from many different types and sizes of Sunday Schools and churches. We're thrilled to be a resource to many.
Rotation.org was originally created by those of us who use the Workshop Rotation Model (aka "The Wo.R.M."). This is why our lesson content is organized into "workshops."  Traditional programs find Rotation-inspired lessons easy to adapt. However,  "traditional" lessons are not-so-easy for Rotation-users to adapt (see reasons below). 
A few key differences between Rotation-style and non-Rotation lessons:
♥ We teach the same story for several weeks using a different method each week.♥  This promotes retention, and allows us to be more creative and go deeper.
 
♥ 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.
