Teaching the faith to kids today is like climbing Everest in a gale. So here’s an elevator.
Remember your childhood? Well, forget it! It’s different now. Life is busier. Families more fractured. Innocence gone. You’re fighting media pressure. Moral vacuum. Reading’s out. See and do is in. Everything’s changed. Except the need to teach kids to love God.
Only now you have better tools! The most comprehensive guide available in print, this book covers everything you could ever want to know. Not just a tool kit, it is a whole laboratory of equipment for running a great church school classroom or Sabbath school.
The authors, who have taught at all levels, survey many different learning modes and styles and explain how to teach in all of them. How to discipline. How to tell a story. How to get kids to talk, to think, to remember. How to use music. How to really understand children with different backgrounds and disabilities. How to form their faith. How to model prayer. How to teach truth, using 29 different active learning methods. And that hardly scratches the surface of the riches between these covers. This encyclopedic handbook is all you need to build great kids who love a great God
