Last time we looked at Successful Bridge Building and the importance of knowing your destination. Building bridges requires you to take stock of where you are and where you want to go. We mentioned that is must be in BROAD terms and set the DIRECTION you want to go. That moves us toward the destination. But the true destination is a change in the life of the student.

2.Goals tell what should happen to the learner, not the teacher!

  • Goals do not express what the teacher will know or understand.
  • Goals do not state what the teacher will do to teach the lesson or the course.
  • Goals tell what happens or will happen to the learner.


For example, the following statement tells what will have happened to the learner at the end of a course.

  • Knows the temptations of Jesus


Which of these goals describes what will happen to the learner rather than what the teacher will do to teach?

  1. Understands the beatitudes of Jesus.
  2. To increase the student’s understanding of the beatitudes of Jesus.


The Answer?
In number 1, the student obviously understands the methods of Bible study.
Number 2 tells what the teacher intends to do. You should have checked number one.
