  • 6. Jesus spent three years training his disciples - intensive training. Farmers [often] train and use the best equipment possible to get the best harvest. Businesses spend vast amounts on their training budget. Christian churches often spend very little on training their people. Training costs but it is effective in producing a good harvest Thursday 18 November 2010
  • 7. Equipping Method “If you want a perfect product, then perfect the underlying process” Walk Thru the Bible Wilkinson suggests that we can apply this principles to training teachers - and he does in the 5 step method outlined here. Thursday 18 November 2010

  • 11. Step 2: Illustrate Illustrate the skill being used, expose them to it, preview what they will look like. Most teachers never get to this - it moves beyond memory repetition of facts Illustrate Expose Preview “You watch me” Thursday 18 November 2010
  • 12. Step 3: Involve Involve the students, they experience the skill in a practicum. Students have been passive until this stage - they heard, watched and now did the skill along with you - this is key, make sure it is a positive experience Involve Experience Practicum “We do together” Thursday 18 November 2010
  • 13. Step 4: Improve Students have the skill, now you improve it so they become efficient as they perform it. This can go on forever aiming to achieve excellence, but does need to be monitored for each individual. Improve Efficient Perform “I watch you” Thursday 18 November 2010

  • 17. 1. Train your students until they are successful, independent users of the skill “As a students conviction and capability determine their ultimate success, these 2 factors should determine the teachers success.” Negative attitude:“I hate this subject”, no feeling for the subject. Inadequate ability:“I will never use this subject”, competence in using the subject is not mastered Thursday 18 November 2010
  • 18. 2. Reproduce yourself by focusing on your students’ skill, not your style Duplicating your style builds shallow people.

  • 19. 3. Alter equipping according to your students’ characteristics and circumstances For a student to successfully use skills you have to take into account their innate abilities - their IQ, social and educational background and physical abilities. You plot your course according to their abilities - you might be the best teacher in the world but still some students will not achieve brilliance! Thursday 18 November 2010

  • 21. 5. Nail down the basics before developing advanced skills The stronger a foundation the higher a building can be constructed upon it.
