Weekend Wrap Up

Attendance: Above Average
Lesson Topic: Blindspots #2: All religons are pretty much the same
'Fun Factor': Average
Volunteer Involvement: Above Average
Music: Way Above Average
Lesson Quality: Above average
Length of Lesson: 31:00 (plus an additional 5 minutes of discussion questions) Student Response: Average

After a little bit of a rocky start last week to our 'Blindspots' series, I think we dialed it in really well this weekend. Both weeks were fairy strong subject matter, but I think we tied the connection of the beliefe of no absolute truth to the belief that all religions are the same pretty well. Students were tracking and asking TONS of questions after the program was over which is always a good thing. The only real 'miss' this week were the discussion questions I prepared. Having students circle up together for some discussion questions is new to us and not something we do all the time. This week, the questions were a bit too heavy and required students to put themselves out there a little too much which resulted in a noticeably quieter tone during discussion time.

Glad to read that I'm not the only one who makes some of the questions to heavy and realize I did it.

Don't beat yourself up too badly about the "heavy" questions. Sometimes the best conversation they are having is in the days after...as that question rolls around and God works it into the soul....

Would you be willing to share your lesson? I would like to see your thoughts because my middle school students are asking questions about different religions. Thanks!
