I have to give props to the Presbyterians. I taught Sunday School this morning. We’re doing the rotation model, something about This We Believe (not remembering the exact name–don’t feel like getting up and finding it.) I am doing the story-telling/drama section for 3 weeks.
Yesterday I opened up the folder I’d been given and was a little overwhelmed. Okay, so I should have looked at it before Saturday afternoon. My bad. I whined a bit on FB about having to use someone else’s curriculum, but then I started really looking at it. The lesson was thoughtful and totally followed good teaching practices. It was a basic into-through-beyond model (always my favorite unit/lesson plan set-up) and it worked to hit every possible learning style. It was more work than I had expected, but now that I have it set up, I’m good for all 3 weeks, so that’s not bad. The truth is, it was a lesson I might have written.
And Bubble went to her own class all by herself and did just fine!
