The Devotions also present an opportunity for Creativity, Collaboration, Cooperation and Critical Thinking – if desired. Each Devotion requires students to look within themselves, reflect how they are living and how they can find their place in the world and with the Holy Spirit in their heart, but they also present opportunities for teachers to have students write and share their ideas, insights, strengths and weaknesses with partners and the whole – in order to maximize engagement.
This is quick Bible study meant to bring students closer to His grace and should be engaging. Most Bible verses were taken from the New International Version; however please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer a different version for your school or students.
What is a Quick Write: The University of West Virginia describes a Quick Write as “a literacy strategy which can be used in any content area to develop writing fluency, to build the habit of reflection into a learning experience, and to informally assess student thinking. The strategy asks learners to respond in 2–10 minutes to an open-ended question or prompt posed by the teacher. (https://wvde.state.wv.us/strategybank/QuickWrites.html).
