Active Learning Strategy
(Excerpt from “21 Day Prayer Challenge for Passionate Educators” by Dr. Stephanie A. Harper)
“But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative- that is the Holy Spirit- He will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.”
“For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.”
“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions. Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.”
James 2:14, 26
According to German psychologist, Herman Ebbinghaus, research shows forty-seven percent of forgetting occurs in the first twenty minutes of which information is presented. Sixty-two percent occurs within the first day, unless the information is applied immediately. Passionate educators, you understand your teaching is only effective if your students can apply the lesson to new situations or experiences. This principle is applicable to your spiritual life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher. He knows the heart of the Father. He will give you the strategies you need to transform this educational system. As you listen to Him, be prepared to immediately obey His instruction. Your faith requires actions.
Holy Spirit, thank you for being my advocate and teacher. Open the eyes and ears of my heart so that I may understand the lessons and strategies that you are teaching. You have my undivided attention. I will obey your directions and immediately apply your instructions. Thank you for leading me as you transform this educational system. In Jesus’ name, amen.
