Do Right When You Do Wrong, Leviticus 1:1-16:34

I spoke to co-teacher Curt about reading Leviticus in preparation for teaching this week's lesson, "Do Right When You Do Wrong." A strategy he is personally using is to "name" each chapter as he reads it. Giving it a name forces him to summarize the chapter to its basic meaning.

Perhaps a way to start the class is to have your class members each take a chapter, read it, and name it. Have them write their suggested name on a marker board. After they are finished, compare their names with the ones you created and discuss the differences in the suggested names. [Note: if you have less than 16 class members, just do that number of chapters. If you have more than 16, then each chapter to multiple people.]

I like this idea because it leverages your own reading of the background passage and it has class members reading the Word for themselves (even if it is only one chapter).
