Improve my teaching skills

  • Youth and leaders

Purpose

Learn and practice basic teaching skills through training others.

Description

Prior to the activity, display questions like the following: How should I teach from the scriptures? How can I ask effective questions when I teach? How can I listen better to those I teach? How can I teach based on the needs of my investigators? How can I help people overcome their concerns? (See Preach My Gospel chapter 10.)

Let the youth choose one of these skills to improve on, and divide them up into companionships based on what they have chosen. Each companionship could then study together their skill from Preach My Gospel and prepare to demonstrate the skill for the entire group. In their training, encourage them to define the skill, demonstrate how it works, and let others practice.
