"Workshop" is the Rotation Model's word for a classroom that's creatively outfitted for a specific teaching activity such as art, games, or drama. The teacher assigned to the workshop prepares their lesson once and adapts it each week for a different group "rotating" into their workshop. The students learn the same major Bible story each week for four or five weeks through a variety of learning approaches. Regular attenders get depth with variety. Infrequent attenders hear the major story in an attractive way. Learn more about how the "rotation" of workshops works in our video presentations about the Rotation Model.
This forum describes and shares workshop teaching methods, designs and decor, and "how-to" resources. Whether you're using the traditional or Rotation Model, we hope you find and share your creative teaching method here.
