Fielder’s Choice Ideas
During Fielder’s Choice, you will have time to focus your efforts on the area(s) of your choosing. Start something new or revisit something unfinished. Here are some ideas:
- Speed Build
- Copy or print this template and build another TfT Unit
- Look through existing material, lesson plans, and learning activities. What can you reclaim for the better Story by renaming or reframing?
- Explore samples of TfT Units created by other teachers
- Identify two ThroughLines for every unit/theme remaining this year.
- Best Practice: Consider all 10 ThroughLines before choosing your top two
- Strengthen your classroom Storyline
- How can “Send Me” become more than a bookend theme?
- How will you help students see that daily learning experiences in your classroom are preparing and equipping them to pray, “Here am I; send me”?
- Brainstorm FLEx Ideas
- Use the ideas in this document as entry points.
- Brainstorming Best Practice: For each unit/theme you work on, identify at least one FLEx idea for each entry point. I.e., think of one advocacy idea, one myth busting idea, one personal service idea, and etc.
- Revisit something unfinished
- Look over your notes from a past TfT in-service and bring an idea to completion
- Take an idea you heard during the artifact fair and plan a way to bring it into your classroom
