Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
The history of African American Sunday School “dates back to the very beginning of the Sunday School movement in the United States.” Combining knowledge of that tradition with insights from modern child development theory and her own research of three African American congregations with strong Sunday School programs, author and educator Judith Hull has created an important guidebook for today’s religious educators. As a teacher of teachers, Hull authoritatively describes the use of learning objectives, the value of cooperative learning, and methods to make children stronger readers. The appendix offers a lesson plan template for creating or enriching curricula. While this resource is addressed to teachers of African American students, ages 6 to 11, its insights and practical suggestions can benefit anyone who works with children in this age group.
