There is an old saying, “Variety is the spice of life.” Throughout this quarter, these “Tips for Teachers” have suggested various techniques and methods to create variety in your class. Some of these techniques are not very new, even if they are not used often enough. Some suggestions may be considered a bit radical. The suggestions given are truly just a sample of the ideas that could be used to help your class learn God’s Word.
The point has been to give you ways to create variety in the classroom. Even the best-tasting meal gets old after eating it for a week. And so, regardless of the style of teaching you employ, always using the same pattern may lead to boredom.
How can you introduce even a small change to your technique this next week, in order to capture your students’ attention and help them to internalize God’s Word?
