 Devotion

As we follow Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, take one story or multiple events and share  multimodally. Working with a partner, you may also compare and contrast Palm Sunday with Good Friday to demonstrate how the sentiment of the people changed drastically in just four days. Try a tool you haven’t worked with yet that perhaps your students could use. You can find the verses at:http://www.biblegateway.com/ 

1. Palm Sunday (Matthew 21:1-17)

2. Jesus anointed by Mary in Simon’s House at Bethany-Tuesday: (Matthew 26:6-13)

3. Preparation for the Passover-Tuesday night: (Luke 22:7-16, 24-30)

4. Jesus washes the Apostles’ feet to teach them humility-Thursday night: (John 13:1-20)

5. Jesus opens his heart to the disciples about his departure-Thursday night: (John 14-16)

6. Jesus’ intercessory prayer near Gethsemane-Thursday night: (John 17)

7. Betrayal, arrest and trial-Friday morning: (Matthew 26:47-27:30)

8. Jesus crucified on the cross-Friday: (Luke 23:33-46)

9. The Resurrection-Sunday: (Matthew 28:5-8)

Announcements & Review

1. Upcoming events:

  • The FINAL workshop date is scheduled for Thursday, May 10, 2018.  It will be our CELEBRATION DAY!
  • #LuthEd Twitter chats take place on Monday evenings from 8:00-9:00CST throughout the school year.

2. Let’s take this time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. What happened? Were you successful? Did you come across any challenges?

3. “Celebration Day” is coming up! What does the format of the day look like and what can you do to prepare?

Helpful tips:

  • Think of the day as a mini-conference and each of you will be the presenters.
  • 10-15 minutes show something(s) you’ve accomplished this year – what you did, how you did it and why you did it.
  • Click on the SHARED DOCUMENTS. Locate your center’s doc and add your name, a description of what you’re sharing and provide your links. Have samples of student projects hosted on the web? Share those links, too! Here’s an example of what the line-up looked like at one of the workshop centers a couple years ago – SAMPLE.
  • Consider what device or devices you will use.
  • Use the outline below with its questions and strategies to prepare for the day.

Goals

1. Discover the value of the time you have here to increase your understanding and dig deep into something you’ve always wanted to try.

2. Explore various tools to use with your students.

3. Identify a tool or resource to share with another teacher at your school.

Do you have so many websites you want to remember but don’t know how to organize them? Check out Sqworl! Simply set up your account, create a new group, and begin cutting and pasting URLs of the websites you want to group. Sample Sqworl on animal websites for student research.
