Jesus spent three years training his
disciples - intensive training.
Farmers [often] train and use the
best equipment possible to get the
best harvest.
Businesses spend vast amounts
on their training budget.
Christian churches often spend
very little on training their
people.
Training costs but it is effective
in producing a good harvest

Wilkinson suggests that we can

Jesus trained his disciples:
Instruct - he taught them publicly
and privately
Illustrate - watching him minister in
all sorts of situations
Involve - they ministered with him,
and then on their own
Improve - they came back and
reported, Jesus then trained and
equipped further
Inspire - post resurrection
appearances, HS to train and comfort -
Jesus sent them but never left them

1. Train your students until
they are successful,
independent users of the skill
“As a students conviction and
capability determine their ultimate
success, these 2 factors should
determine the teachers success.”
Negative attitude: “I hate this
subject”, no feeling for the subject.
Inadequate ability: “I will
never use this subject”,
competence in using the subject is
not mastered
Thursday 18 November 2010
2. Reproduce yourself by
focusing on your students’
skill, not your style
Duplicating your style
builds shallow people.
Students must become
effective within their own
personality and
temperament.
Each Bible book is written
with an obvious style
unique to the writer.
Thursday 18 November 2010
3. Alter equipping according to
your students’ characteristics
and circumstances
For a student to successfully use
skills you have to take into
account their innate abilities -
their IQ, social and educational
background and physical abilities.
You plot your course according
to their abilities - you might
be the best teacher in the world
but still some students will not
achieve brilliance!
Thursday 18 November 2010
4. Increase students’
motivation by relationship,
retribution and reward
The more the student desires
to learn something the
quicker they will learn it.
Increase their motivation -
done in 3 main ways.
1. Relationships
2. Fear of retribution or pain
3. Hope of reward, pleasure,
benefit
Thursday 18 November 2010
5. Nail down the basics before
developing advanced skills

The stronger a foundation the


higher a building can be
constructed upon it.
Make sure your students master
the basics and then teach
advanced skills.
Remember as a teacher you are
there for the benefit of the
students - not vice versa

Thursday 18 November 2010


6. Encourage students more
frequently during early training
As the start of
something new there is
usually some anxiety or
fear - the stronger such
feelings are the more the
teaching is blunted.
Teachers have to
actively lessen
students fears - in 5
ways:

7. Reaffirm students’ value
independent of their level of
performance

Jesus showed the widows


offering was worth more than
that of the rich - freeing us
from the bondage of
comparison. Performance
appraisal is relative to the
ability of that person - not of
others.

Questions
1. Consider problems you have had in learning
development - was it a lack of knowledge of the
basics, or a poor attitude? How can you avoid such
things for your students.
2. What motivates you most as a Christian, a
student, a teacher? What subject area most brings
you to life?
3. How would you encourage and hep a student
who is discouraged by their lack of natural ability?
