In anticipation of the Getting Started as a Catechist Webinars that I’ll be doing in just a few weeks, I’m gathering the wisdom of veteran catechists to share with those who are beginning catechists. In particular, I’m seeking your wisdom on teaching to various age groups. I received some great feedback and suggestions for teaching to primary age children but I’m coming back to you one more time for your insights about teaching to intermediate age children (grades 4, 5, and 6). I could use a few more suggestions. I plan to share the best advice in my webinars. Please take a moment to share your insights about teaching intermediate age children…just click here and add your comments. Thanks!
