I realize this is the 8,000th time I’ve mentioned the Texas Baptist Church Weekday Education Association, but they are a great organization! Each year, they have a theme designed around a theme verse. For 2013, the theme is “In the Potter’s Hands” and comes from the Isaiah 64:8 “We are the clay and you are the potter; we are all the work of your hands.” I’ve included this training in my portfolio as an example of customization. I took my Emotional Development training and tweaked it to fit the 2013 TBCWEA theme.
The trainings are nearly identical! I changed the name to better fit the theme, added a slide connecting the idea to the theme verse and one about my history, and added a slide to the end asking the learners to give examples of using this information in their classrooms and how the verse connects to emotional development in their own words, in addition to editing a few slides to make them more universal rather than specific to any center.
Below are a few of the changed or added slides:
