by Wolgamott, Rick Allen, D.Min., Liberty University, 2008, 229; 3297861
Abstract (Summary)

Current teacher training in local churches often consists of asking a teacher to read pre-developed curriculum and follow the publishers' instructions. Teachers are not being taught to critically evaluate the materials, and as a result they simply follow the directions provided. The purpose of this project is to train teachers in the local church in basic theology, hermeneutics, and preparing a Bible lesson. As a result, teachers will be trained to study Scripture and evaluate lessons based on Scriptural truth, and to prepare their own lesson plans. Recruiting and retaining teachers will become more effective as a result of providing this training to the teachers.
