TEACHING TEENS isn't an easy task as anyone who's tried it can attest. At the Annandale lectures David Banning, who works with the South Bumby church in Orlando along with Robert Harkrider, gave a great lecture on teaching teens. David made the excellent point that very often teens make a big transition by going from a female instructor with a more interactive, vibrant teaching style to a male instructor who use the lecture method of teaching. I think he's very right about that. Teens don't like to be lectured to. He's developing a series of lesson books called the 'Get Them Talking' series based on the idea that teens want (need) to learn interactively and playing on the great truth that teens like to talk. I was really impressed with it.
