“Brainstorming”

Brainstorming can be a great technique to help students generate more creativity because there are no right or wrong answers. Make sure you allow everyone to contribute their ideas. Also be sure you let them know that no answer can be wrong. Be aware not to criticize or demean anyone’s answer, but seek to look at it objectively. When finished, evaluate their responses and discuss them as a group. The closing activity in this week’s teacher’s lesson in which they brainstorm examples of materialism and how they can lead them away from God is an example of this technique.
