The Materials for Secondary Bible
Below are the standard materials provided for each secondary grade. Some grades may include additional pieces.
Student Edition (eTextbooks available)
The student edition for each course is divided into sections by topic and suggests Scripture memory and Scripture reading as applicable. Feature boxes explore background information, real-life examples, or pressing questions to complement the section as well as cultural focuses to help students to better understand historical cultures. Thinking It Through questions and unit reviews provide opportunities for discussion or formative assessment. Each student edition will give students a starting place for developing the Bible study skill they will be learning.
The teacher editions provide a thorough guide for each section of the student editions. Section objectives give the big picture for a few days of instruction, and preparation information gives a starting place for planning and teaching, including insight on effective preparation, worldview shaping, and key questions. Teaching strategies provide discussion prompts and guides, writing activities, group collaboration, and teaching tips. Handouts for student use are available for going deeper on specific topics. The teacher editions also provide answers for Thinking It Through questions and unit reviews.
