"Workshop" is the Rotation Model word for a "teaching-medium-specific" classroom,  such as a workshop/classroom that shows videos or teaches with art projects, or uses cooking as its activity. In the following teaching-medium-specific topics, you will find general lists of resources, teaching techniques and materials, how-to help, manuals, and discussion. Traditional classrooms will certainly find many inspirational ideas and creative techniques here.

If you're looking for a lesson idea that uses a specific technique (such as a "video for Prodigal Son") go to our LESSON forum for that Bible story.
