  1. Always give liberal praise to your students
    • Words cost you little more than the time it takes to say them, but they are priceless to your students. Find things they do right, brag on them and make them feel the WOW factor.
  2. Build Excitement
    • Share success stories of lives changed and miracles that happened this week. Leave the classroom with “a girl tied on the railroad track” kind of story – so they’ll come back next week to find out how the story ends.
  3. Create opportunities for life change
    • Take your class to serve in the community. This takes the spotlight off of your students and onto the needs of the people in your city.
  4. Develop leaders among your students
    • Get them involved in the training of others. Retention rates go to 95% when people are challenged to share the lesson with others. Develop new teachers in the classroom.
  5. Expect God to show up and touch lives
    • Pray and allow God to move in your class. This “To Do” should be first and last on your list!
    • God will “confirm His word with signs and wonders”. (Mark 16:20) Prepare your heart and ask God to help you discern what should happen this week in your classroom.
