Goals for Teachers and Leaders Who Teach
· Get students ready to meet God.
· Schedule lesson time.
· Know your students so you can choose the material to benefit them most.
· Be prepared by doing the lesson early in the week.
· Ask for Heavenly intervention in helping choose, prepare, and teach the lesson.
· Never teach a lesson without teaching about Christ or His gospel.
· Teach with an outline instead of reading from the manual.
· Vary the lesson approach.
· I will use this basic frame work to teach the lesson…
o Assess progress on the class challenges
o Pull from the learners the knowledge the have on the lesson subject
o Fill in the holes – (Teach the lesson)
o Assess learners new knowledge - Summarize
o Challenge learners to live gospel principle, immediately!
o Help them set reachable goals.
· Tell the students how the principle relates to their lives and why they need to apply it.
· Help the students set goals to use the principle
· I will monitor the students progress through the week.
Smaller supportive goals should be set to reach the secondary goals!
Secondary Goal: Be prepared by doing the lesson early in the week
Supportive Goals: I will read my lesson for the 1st time within 24 hours of giving the previous lesson.
I will pray for help in picking the appropriate information that my students need.
I will continue to read the lesson and tailor the material to my students.
Start date: Immediately!
· Finish date: When I am no longer a teacher!
· Reward: I have helped my students be better people!
· Consequence: I will be held accountable for not helping them to change.
Put these goals on your bathroom mirror or some where you will see them often.
