How do you interpret and not preach?

Kentucky lawmakers as you know added a law to have the bible as an elective. Not preaching but teaching is what they are aiming for in this. We know there will be students pressuring teachers to tell their beliefs. So we must understand them and allow grace. I think students will want to talk about different denominations and their differences as well as persuade them to change. It is up to the teacher keep student civil. I think this is a major goal that people need to have with the bible. No reckless words but treat each other with love. Mostly reading and letting the bible teach itself as well as the students for interpretation. The teacher gives material such as general concordances, dictionaries, and encourage students to open opinion. Allow students to search for commentary on a computer like their phone. Teach students to look at all the words of a certain word, exegesis so they can get an overall view of the bible.Teach different types of literary usage. Have the class memorize the different types of usage and ask the class to state what usage they are have and write it down. Then share it with each other seeing general consensus based on everyone do general exegesis. Like a Motley Fool wall that you get the greatest amounts of thumbs up for the best educated content.

 Create a no judgement zone. It is more about memorizing facts and treating people with love while you do it.  You want to let the students see the general effect of the bible and allow them to learn from it on their own. Learning the bible can help them with their heart, let them share their heart with others. Let it's statutes make them smart and wise. Let them be wise and relational to God. Tell them what to do in advice so they feel better. They can learn from your relationship with God by your actions in treating them. Let the prophets be prophets. Let the kings be kings. Let the poets be poets and let the singers sing.
