New from our Writing Team

Jesus' Great Commission and Ascension

Six creative lesson plans, including a Music & Drama Workshop, a "Memory" Workshop, and a Video Workshop that includes a survey of the best & worst videos covering this story.

Coming from the Team this Summer:
"Lazarus Come Out!"
and
"The Magi: Gifts to Give Your Savior"

Writing Team lessons are extra-creative and extra-detailed for teachers. And in addition to their different activities, they teach teachers many different 'techniques' for reading the Bible, ways of leading discussion, and reflecting.

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.

Print a one page PDF about the Model
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. Speeding through a new Bible story every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burned-out teachers who can't handle the rate of change and constant preparation.


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

ROTATION STORY:
Prodigal Son
VIDEO
Teacher: Jane
ART
Teacher: Amy
DRAMA
Teacher: Bill
BIBLE GAMES
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.
