For this evening’s session, I have 2 main things planned:
- complete the “Bible Basics Learning Stations” that we started last week
- introduce the Rosary as we begin the Month of the Holy Rosary (using the PowerPoint on the Month of the Holy Rosary that I’ve made available for FREE here on my blog!)
I’ve created a Mysteries of the Rosary Note-Taking Sheet for the young people to use during the PowerPoint presentation…it’s always a good idea to have students doing something so that they don’t think they are passively sitting back and being entertained!
Near the end of the class, I’m going to ask the students to explain to my wife and me how to say the Rosary as if we have never heard of it before! That should be interesting! (I always think of the scenes from the great movie Philadelphia in which Denzel Washington’s character repeatedly says, “Explain this to me like I’m a 6 year old.” If we can explain something about our faith as if speaking to a child, that means we’re getting to the core of the message!)
Here is my complete lesson plan for this evening: Session 3 Plan – Bible Basics and Rosary
