Kim Dailey, author of Sunday School Sources at eBibleTeacher.com presents full-day seminars for Sunday School Teachers of all ages, focusing on practical ways to improve effectiveness and take the pain out of preparing lessons.
Levels of Learning:
What can students of different ages understand and how to we pull them to higher levels on comprehension? Specific techniques to know whether your class "got it".

Making Your Own Material:
Samples of a multitude of class materials you can make at home with basic office supplies. Tips for getting the most of your time and money, and adapting the ideas to your class.
