I’ve used or adapted a couple of activities out of Teaching the Bible: Practical strategies for classroom instruction (free preview at Google Books) this semester. And, I have to say that some of them have worked really well. Yesterday, we used one of the activities on Proverbs where we constructed a set of proverbs as a class. The students were engaged (and I think they even enjoyed themselves quite a bit). We also did one of the ones on Jeremiah earlier in the semester that worked out really well. If you’re finding that your students are kind of dragging, some of these activities at a well-timed point in the week or semester can break the monotony of the semester. I’d highly recommend the book.
