If you are calling in to the blog as a result of the training day in Guildford on Saturday, Welcome! (and thanks for making it such a fun time). As promised some links and reminders of what we covered:
A pdf of the Powerpoint slides is available for Download: Microsoft PowerPoint – tween powerpoint 2010 for Guildford.pdf
For a fuller explanation of what I was presenting though you’ll need to read the booklet I demi-authored 🙂
Among the things recommended were:
Throw and tell Balls: Available from your local Christian bookshop
The Energize resource from Urban Saints
Watch School of Rock with the following questions in mind:
1. Where is our approach like the school, where is it like Dewey’s (Mr Schneebly)?
2. How does Dewey engage and enable the young people?
3. How does Dewey share his passion and allow others to experience and participate in this?
4. What from the film would you critique and what would you absorb for your approach?
We also talked quite a bit about discussion and here is a link to some methods which may give you some methodologies to play with.
Hope you have fun working with your tweens, remember it’s a B.L.A.S.T 🙂
