This class on Laws of Teaching and Learning is a combination of knowing and doing. A teacher who knows his or her subject well, and follows systematic procedures in preparing the lesson, must also have the skills and knowledge about how to present the lesson effectively.
In this course the teacher will acquire a knowledge and understanding of his or her spiritual impact within the context of Sabbath School teaching, including what the Bible says about wisdom, sphere of influence, personal spiritual growth, and attitude.
The course is designed as an overall introduction to the Bible. To some it may seem elemental, but it is always valuable to see the big picture and have in mind the broad outlines of one’s textbook, in this case the entire Bible.
It is indispensable for a Sabbath School teacher/discussion leader to know how to correctly interpret the Bible. In the case of Seventh-day Adventists the same responsibility applies to correctly understanding and using the writings of Ellen G White. This science of biblical interpretation is called “hermeneutics.”
