Episode 1.7: Teaching Tips from Middle School Teachers

This is our final episode in our mini-series on teaching well. This first season is dedicated to the basics of youth ministry, and we're doing 3 episodes on teaching well!

This episode features Jen Jacques, a Middle School teacher with a lot of experience in youth ministry. She brings us a lot of insights into teaching well from real life teachers. As you can imagine, middle school teachers spend a great deal of time learning to teach well. Jen is no different, so she can be helpful to youth workers.



I mentioned Orange's PHASE Project. You can learn more on YOUTH MINISTRY: SMALL CHURCH's page on human development.

Jen mentioned a few of her favorite resources:

Can I Ask That series by Kara Powell. These are books, but this link will take you to the Fuller Youth Institute's page on the books. There are numerous other resources here!

Discipline Without Stress Punishments or Rewards: How Teachers and Parents Promote Responsibility & Learning, by Marvin Marshall.

Other People’s Children by Lisa Delpit and Herbert Kohl.

Educating All God’s Children Nicole Baker Fulgham.

And of course, Jen mentioned an Instagram account she uses for her students. Her account is @mrsjacquesteach
