Tuesday Teaching Tip: Use Listening Teams!

Say what?!

Today’s teaching tip can be used with groups of all ages. Listening Teams are a great way to get people involved in your Bible study.

Divide your group into two or three teams. Give each team a specific thing to listen for as you read a passage of Scripture. Allow the teams a few minutes to compare and compile their notes, then report their findings to the larger group.

Use listening teams:

  • When you want people to pay attention.
  • If you have a larger group.
  • When you want small details to get noticed.

Advantages of this teaching approach include:

  • It can be done with groups of all ages.
  • It can be done with groups of all sizes.
  • It doesn’t take a lot of prep.
  • Everyone has a part.
  • It gets group members talking.
  • Pinpoints key information on which the teacher wants to focus.
