About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

Our Bible Story Lesson Forums are organized around "major" Bible stories and "Workshops" -- such as Art, Video, and Drama (creative teaching methods). This organization is a nod to our Rotation modelers for whom this site was originally created. It ALSO helps traditional Sunday Schools looking for more than the "same-old craft." View a short video about the Model.
