Click here to watch a video about the 6 things you need to know about PowerPoint. A PowerPoint show is provided to accompany each session. The slides are supplementary, providing extra visuals, illustrations, and other items as they relate to the session. It may help in a large classroom setting to keep students tracking along, reminding them of the major Q&A or what Scripture passage you’re studying.
And you don’t have to have a projector or computer to use them … There’s a bunch of great stuff in them, like stats or other creative ideas, so you can just flip through for more discussion tidbits!
Go through each slideshow before class and think about the most effective way to use them with your students. Note that these slide shows are copyrighted and may not be distributed.
System requirements: Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and newer. PowerPoint viewer is available as a free download from www.microsoft.com/downloads. Note: We are unable to provide technical support regarding PowerPoint.
Click here to watch a video on using the Journal effectively. The printed student devotional Journal contains 13 sessions with Scripture passages and questions for the students to reflect on during the week. The digital devotional contains the same Scripture and questions as the printed version. The electronic text can be used in a variety of ways:
- Email: Copy and paste the day’s Scripture passage and question. Send it to your group or individuals and invite them to reply. Use the opportunity to remind them that you are praying for them.
- Text: Send your students a text message of a verse or question. Or simply remind them of the weekly major question and answer. You may also use texting to ask how their week is going or check in another way.
- Facebook/group website: Post the verse and question on your group’s page and encourage interaction. Your students will enjoy hearing others’ thoughts and ideas, and it may encourage them to do their devotions on their own when they see peer responses.
System requirements: Microsoft Office Word 2007 and newer.
