Lecture = WARNING: are the notes of the teacher going to the notes of the student without passing through the brains of either? If you could tell your lecture-oriented teacher what to do to improve his/her lecture, what would you say?
Discussion – p. 192
Storytelling – p. 189
Small groups or buzz groups – p. 193
Questions – p. 190

Write the story out word for word as you wish to tell it.
Create “Anchor Points” for the story.
Read and re-read the story until you know the story thoroughly. Know the anchor points well.
Locate and decide where spiritual applications will fit in making these brief and to the point.
When it’s a Biblical narrative: use your imagination without over-modernizing or distorting the story.
Save the story for future reference.

Commandments for
Using Methods
Major Lesson Plan Faults
1. Lack of a clear sense of direction (AIMLESS)
Exegetical Idea, Pedagogical Idea, Lesson AIMS
2. Lack of organization and structure
3. Too much content or too little content
4. Not enough support for the information
example, explain, enlarge
story, illustrations, data, cross-references, news accounts, diagrams, etc
5. Excessively teacher-centered

6. Inadequate needs assessment resulting in an inadequate understanding of the class
What will turn this group on?
What are their major concerns?
What problems are they facing?
What would I want to hear if I were in that class?
What issues drive their thinking?
What terms do they understand?

7. Starting with the Bible rather than the student. The purpose of the HOOK is to draw them together to follow the direction where you, the teacher, want to go. It is a bridge to THE BOOK, to the Word of God! If you want to lose your audience, start with the Bible. Starting with Bible is NOT starting with where the students are!

8. Failure to add transitional sentences between each part--hook to book, book to look, and look to took, e.g. of Hook to Book -- “All of us have been aware of the news about . . . So what does the Bible have to say about . . . .”

1. Determine the PASSAGE
2. Work on the BOOK section
Review the team’s IBS
What is the theme?
3. What is the EXEGETICAL idea?
4. What is the PEDAGOGICAL idea?
5. What will be the MAIN points?

6. Work on the LOOK section (think methods)
7. Work on the TOOK section (methods)
8. Work on the HOOK section (methods)
11. Do a TRIAL RUN
12. Submit the team’s LESSON PLAN ! (no late papers, no electronic files, with rubric cover)

Lesson Planning

What choices did the students get to make during the session?
Is there a variety of methods, activities and resources planned for the class?
As teacher, are you introducing something new? If so, do students have a chance to practice or experiment?
How much time will be required for each section and activity planned?
