to the world… I’m sooo tired… fighting this alergy, and then not getting more than 3 hours of sleep last night has left me feeling a little punch drunk.

The training is going well, I’m very much a convert of Participant Centered Training.    The things we shared and discovered today, has re-inspired me to think about how I teach Sunday School.  Trying to be more participant challenged is more work in the preparation, but I think it yields better results on Sunday morning, because the process imediately involves people, and builds the sense of partnership in learning.  Which will pay dividends with guests visiting, I think.

Tradional SS is so lecture centric, and then discussions are easily mis-directed or dominated by the few that are willing to talk to the larger group.  We tried small discussion groups before, but they weren’t focused on the participant, but more on a facilitator asking questions, which is no different really than the lecture mode.

So I’m going to try something different come week from Sunday, try to build a framework of participant-centered chunks of content that re-inforces the biblical principle we are learning.  Still working off the Lifeway materials, but really focusing on a pattern that is more VBS-like than traditional SS.

Or maybe I’m ust hopped up on the Claratin.
