What is the Rotation.org Writing Team?

Volunteer lesson writers have been getting together to write sets of workshop lessons since 2002. Over four dozen volunteers have taken part in this ministry assisted by professional writers. Because that intensive help required professional assistance paid for by our Supporting Members, only Supporting Members get access to the lessons themselves. It's a major benefit of supporting our site.

In 2015, our volunteer Rotation.org Board began the Writing Team Renovation Project. Every volunteer-written lesson in every set is being improved or replaced by professional Rotation curriculum writers, under the guidance of the Board. Our goal is to make the "WT" lesson sets exemplary of the Workshop Rotation Model style and extra-creative, with the ultimate goal of training and inspiring volunteer writers to new heights. Volunteers continue to work on the WT sets, and you are welcome to join the team by contacting us.
