ARE YOU A TEACHER? HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO TEACH?
If your answer to either of these questions is yes (or even maybe), then our upcoming workshop is for you. It is called The Art & Science of Leading Adult Learners: How To Be Good at Leading Adult Bible Studies & Sunday School Classes. Led by Libby Young, this workshop will cover topics such as how to deliver content in a classroom setting, how to engage participants with the material and each other, how to set up a classroom, how to prepare for teaching, and many others. This workshop will be a great way for existing teachers to sharpen their skills, but we also want it to give would-be teachers the resources and confidence to take the next step.
Here are the details: We are offering two sessions to accommodate as many schedules as possible. The content will be the same at each one. The first will be Thursday, September 6, from 7:00-9:00pm in Room 203 (formerly known as Room 204, which has been recently renovated and is a great meeting space). The second will be Sunday, September 9, from 2:00-4:00pm in Room 203. If you would like to attend, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know. Space is limited, and we would like to know how many folks to plan on, so please let us know by Sunday, September 2.
If you are an existing teacher, or if you have ever thought you might like to teach, please consider attending this workshop. It will be fun, informative, and interactive—not boring! This is a great opportunity to sharpen your skills or to try something new. And it is good for the health of our church to continue developing teachers. So please come join us!
