   when the class is large
   when seating arrangement does not encourage
   when large amount of factual information needs to
    be presented
   when the lecturer is capable and interesting
   when the class members have little or no
    experience with other teaching methods
   when you do not have the lesson material well in
   when you are not well organized and tend to
   people use the lecture method because they do
    not feel secure enough to allow students to
    engage in free and open discussions
   when you do not speak clearly
   use this method only in the right teaching situation
   give the students advance assignments in reading
    and research to help them remain interested in the
    lecture topic
   use vivid language and vary your speaking rate,
    pitch of voice, and volume
   present frequent illustrations and examples
   use visuals and mix other teaching methods with
    the lecture
   prepare students for the lecture by giving them
    questions to think beforehand
   be alert to student attitudes – if students are
    clearly losing interest, change to another
    approach which will gain more attention
   close the lecture with a review, a summary, or an
    evaluation time in which students can tell what
    they have learned
   it captures and holds the student’s attention
   students can identify with some of the
    characters in the story and, in the process, learn
    to imitate or avoid those characters’ actions
   some biblical passages do not readily lend
    themselves to storytelling, especially those that
    are doctrinal
   the storyteller must be able to tell the story at his
    student’s level or else they lose interest
   if the story is told above or below the student’s
    level, it will either be too difficult or too boring
   Good stories develop hard work, diligent practice,
    and prayer.
   A good story has structure that must be observed.

        Introduction – must capture interest
        Growing Action – developing plot
        Climax – the results of the actions from the story
        Conclusion – short, direct, or open-ended
   help remember the facts and lessons in their
   make an impression in the listeners’ wills and
    emotions affecting them to decision making,
    changes, and adjustments
   Parables
   Figures of Speech
   Allusions – passing reference to historical
    biographical, literary, or scientific data
   The Bible itself
   Personal Experiences
   History and Biography
   it should be clear
   it should be long enough to convey the truth
    adequately, but brief enough to allow the hearer to
    absorb the teaching
   effective illustrations should be fresh and new
   it should be dignified, appropriate for the spiritual
    truth to be conveyed
   Giving Assignment
   Student Preparation – lessons given ahead to give
    time enough for preparation
   Class Participation
