The TalkSheets series intentionally engage middle school students in discussions to help them internalize their faith. All you need to do to get started is make a few copies of the handouts, gather some young people and you are on your way to addressing serious issues in the lives of 11 - 14 year olds. (Really, it's that easy. Take a look at the excerpt sample above and you'll see one lesson is the front and back of a page.) You can cover the material in as little as 20 minutes or explore it intensively for up to 2 hours. This flexibility makes it a good resource for youth group meetings, Sunday School or Bible study for this age group. By facilitating young people's thought-provoking conversations, leaders will promote the development of biblical principles and practices for pre-teens and young teens. A seven page introduction prepares leaders with helpful tips to lead effective discussions.
David Lynn returns to the Talksheets series with more Old Testament discussion questions for middle school students---Middle School TalkSheets on the Old Testament, Epic Bible Stories. A full year of topics and meaningful prompts will promote meaningful conversation in your youth group or bible study.
