If you are a teacher (Sunday School, Junior Church, VBS leader) in your Church you may have experienced times of frustration over how to handle certain things or behaviors. I would like to share some helpful tips that I have found on an online source with you. Each Tuesday I will try to post a helpful tip for teaching. I will call it "Tuesday's Teaching Tip".
Today's Tip is:
If You Don't Know it, They Won't Learn it.
If you don't have a good handle on your lesson or topic that you are discussing, and don't know it forwards and backwards, it will show. This will cause the kids to lose interest in what you're saying because they will figure if you didn't care enough to study it, why should they care enough to learn it? That doesn't mean you have to be able to answer every off-topic question they ask. It's a great example to say, I'll have to look up the answer to that. But if it's part of the lesson you expect them to learn, you'd better know it.
