Pictured: A wonderful example of an Art Workshop project that creatively re-tells and reflects on the story, rather than just killing lesson time with a "quickie craft." The photo comes from member Betsy Burgdorff, who was using the Writing Team's Palm Sunday "Art and Storytelling" Workshop lesson.

The Team's lesson plans are open to our Supporting Members. See the Writing Team Lesson Menu. The WT's lesson sets are in addition to all our public lesson forums.

Psalm 8

Six creative lessons that get your students "looking up" at God's crowning message to them in the heavens.

Our Writing Team lessons are written for Rotation teachers, and traditional teacher looking for something extra awesome, and not the "same-old-Sunday-School-stuff." Learn more about the Team and its lessons.

About the Rotation Model and Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized for those using the Workshop Rotation Model to organize their Sunday School (one story taught several weeks in a row, with a different approach each week). However, 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 denominations. We're thrilled to be a resource to many. But unlike the ad-driven Bible lesson websites, we are not interested in posting quickie Bible studies with a five minute craft so we can get you to look at an ad. We strive for learning that's deeper, more engaging, and more lasting. (And we are ad-free and 100% member supported.) See our new and improved Writing Team lesson sets for examples of that standard.
