"Teaching preteens is challenging. They want to talk about faith but may lack the confidence to jump in. They’re eager to connect and make a difference but aren’t sure how. BE BOLD helps teachers navigate those waters by facilitating meaningful discussion and Bible exploration. Every leader guide includes “preteen pointers” throughout the lesson to help them understand their students better, and every lesson is carefully designed to reach kids through a single bible point and related games and activities that will get kids talking and thinking.
As a BE BOLD leader, you’ll also get tons of support and helpful tools...
• Teacher resources, including quick “now what?” teacher-tip videos
• Admission to an exclusive Facebook community where you can ask peers for advice
• A feedback loop so we can stay in touch about your class’ discussions
• Prayer support as you invest in the lives of preteens
