Dos & Don’ts of Teaching

Today’s lesson provides a change of pace from a lesson based mostly on reading, talk, and study, and allows students to express their creativity. For some, this will be a welcome release and they will dive right in. Others will hold back, saying, “I’m not creative,” or “I’m not good at art.”

Encourage everyone to participate by making the activity very open and low-risk:

Do provide a safe place where all opinions can be expressed without criticism.

Do prepare well.

Do pray for the Spirit to take over.

Do create an environment full of fun and laughter.
