About the Rotation Model and Organization of Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized to support those using the Workshop Rotation Model for Sunday School. However, our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools, and many of our registered and supporting members do just that.

Learn more about the Model
The Rotation Model is based on two principles:
(1) Creative teaching methods and rooms ("workshops") help students learn better and want to return more often.

(2) We need to teach stories for more than one week. Having a new Bible story every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burns-out teachers who want to be creative.

By rotating kids and not teachers through "workshops," kids get variety and depth in a single story, while teachers get to prepare once and improve every week.

Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.

Prodigal Son
Teacher: Jane
Teacher: Amy
Teacher: Bill
Teacher: Jo
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 and scalable to any church size. Add a fifth week and workshop to create a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. See more schedule examples.
