An intro to Rotation.org's
"Real Teacher Training"
from the Paste in My Hair Blog Team at Rotation.org
Point of View:
Traditionally, “teacher training” in many churches has been a euphemism for “planning and a pep-talk,” with very little in the way of actual teacher training. While planning and pep-talks are nice — actual, real, and AMAZING teacher training is about improving teaching skills.
To help with teaching training, we've created two resources:
The first is a real teacher training event to get teachers talking and sharing. And its activities and discussion MODEL skills they can use in the classroom.
Below are two graphics discussion starters we created for the Training Event post and for the Lampstanding post. You are welcome to share them with your teachers. Read the blog posts about what they mean and how to use them.
Put some paste in your hair too!
Supporting Members will be responding to each of our training posts, adding their own training insights, suggestions and tweaks. That’s the Rotation.org way — tapping the power of community.
Lesson plans that have built-in training tips
While we’re on the subject of training, we’d like to point out that BY DESIGN many Writing Team lesson plans have “training nuggets” built into them.
These lesson plan training nuggets describe the “how and why” of certain activities and techniques your teachers will find in their lesson plan. Traditional curriculum is almost totally devoid of such helps, but our Writing Team believes they are essential to helping teachers learn new ways of relating God's Word to their students.
