The key to being an effective LDS early morning seminary teacher is to understand that you are not the teacher! The Holy Ghost is the teacher. Another important key is to understand that students are more responsible for successful learning than the teacher is. This book will help you invite the Holy Ghost to teach your students and describes an effective pattern for preparation and teaching. As a newly called (and overwhelmed) seminary teacher, I was grateful to find Damonis book! He encourages us to focus on the most important aspects of teaching seminary, such as first asking the Lord What do they need to know? His teaching examples invite students to actively participate in class discussions and to learn by the Spirit. This book has made a difference in my first year of teaching early morning seminary. - Andrea Martin When I was called to be Seminary Teacher I was worried that I hadnt been in any early morning classes before to observe and learn from watching. Besides the thoroughness and wonderful details of covering many angles for the new Seminary teacher, this book is written in a way that has a personal touch that made me feel as though I had been in the Seminary room as an observer. A must read for any new Seminary teacher! - Debbie Siebert As a new seminary teacher I have found the model of Search, Analyze, Apply, and Testify has benefited me greatly. It has helped my students to learn for themselves the principles taught in the scriptures and share their testimonies, sometimes without even knowing it! - Jennifer Hansen
