Qur'anic scripture, Islamic Studies and Seerah Lessons should stay with students as they step away into the real world. Learn research-based theories that can help us do just that when incorporated into our lesson plans! Through an introduction of Multiple Intelligences theory and Bloom's Taxonomy, the focus of this session will be to create lesson plans that are student centered, engaging, and will help students retain concepts in long term memory. Participants will be seated by corresponding subjects and/or grade levels to allow for grade and curricular articulation.
Living Our Faith through Service Projects for Weekend Schools
We know that students have a deeper learning experience when they have a chance to apply their knowledge and practice their learning in the real world. This workshop will help educators plan opportunities for students to live their faith. We will go over how to connect activities and service projects to our Weekend school curriculum. Participants will take away ideas for easy-to-implement service projects and ways to collaborate with local organizations.
Teaching a Hi-Tech Generation
Technology, really? It can happen with just a laptop and projector. With the cyber world of Facebook, Twitter and You-tube competing for our students' attention, Sunday schools must evolve to engage learners with a 21st Century approach. In this session, participants will understand how to use the tools of technology to help support and enhance learning outcomes. Join us and see how the use of technology will support complex thinking; provide choices that allow students to be self-directed learners in a collaborative environment; and create a means for home and school connections.
