I recently read Exponential by Dave and Jon Ferguson. They talk about the 5-step model of Jesus, which I’ve used for years, but they did make one very helpful addition to it. They insert “we talk” between each of the original steps:

  • I do, you watch, we talk.
  • I do, you help, we talk.
  • You do, I help, we talk.
  • You do, I watch, we talk.
  • You do, someone else watches.

That one addition to this model I’ve taught and used for over 30 years really captures an important component of show-how training. Reflection and processing is essential for learning.
