"Workshop" is the Rotation Model's word for a classroom that's organized and outfitted for a specific teaching activity like art or drama. See video presentations about Rotation and its "Workshops." This forum collects and shares "workshop" teaching methods & "how-to" resources that can be used for many different stories. Whether you're using the traditional or Rotation Model, we hope you find and share your creative inspiration here.

 If you're looking for a specific lesson activity for a particular Bible story such as a "video" for the parable of the Prodigal Son, then look up your particular story in our LESSON IDEA forums.
