Health in Christian Perspective Student Quiz and Test Book
Sixteen quizzes, four-unit tests, and a 9- week and final exam are included. Not reproducible. Answers are found in the corresponding quiz and test book answer key, which also includes suggestions for testing, grading tips and suggested answers to the essay questions.
“But why do I have to learn this?” That is one question that you will likely never hear with this quiz and test book that focuses on practical application. Whether your teen is learning to decipher significant medical terms affecting loved ones, read labels to make wise eating choices, graciously interact with a disabled person, or help an accident victim, he should readily be able to see the practical value of the information, and you will know that he is better informed for handling life’s health situations.
The quiz and test book is correlated with the text Health in Christian Perspective, 2nd ed., and Health in Christian Perspective Teacher Edition, which includes the curriculum/lesson plans. Answers and grading guidance are sold separately in Health in Christian Perspective Quiz/Test Key. Grades 9–12. One semester.
* The 16 quizzes of 10 questions each provide weekly reinforcement of concepts and an opportunity for you to evaluate your teen’s weekly progress.
* A variety of quiz formats such as multiple choice, short answer, matching, labeling, and sorting prepares your teen for the tests and requires him to consider the information from various aspects.
* Along with objective questions, the 4 unit tests include an essay question that gives your teen the opportunity to apply his learning to practical life situations.
* A nine-weeks and final exam further reinforce the concepts learned throughout the semester so that your teen will retain this vital information.
* Since each quiz and test specifies the section of the textbook it covers, you can easily adjust quizzes and tests to your schedule for greater flexibility.
Rigorous and college preparatory, the upper-level science courses from Abeka continue to provide a God-glorifying, traditional approach that follows a standard scope and sequence. Parents/teachers remain directly involved in the teaching process at the upper levels and may feel more comfortable to teach Abeka science at home if they have a strong science background. But don’t let this hinder you from choosing this rigorous science curriculum! Abeka offers online courses to meet the needs of homeschool parents who feel uncomfortable teaching upper-level science courses. See their website for more information. Student books are softcover. Teacher guides are spiral bound and hardcover. Separate answer keys are softcover. Lab experiments are more complex and may require special equipment (especially at the high school level). Student and teacher books are not reproducible. See individual descriptions for more information.
Instilling an academically solid, God-centered understanding of all branches of science from the early elementary years through high school is the mission of this traditional curriculum. Uniquely, Abeka focuses on mastery of the sciences from a young age through two pathways. First, the science curriculum follows a spiral approach to learning, which means students review previously learned concepts each year, expanding on known concepts and learning new material. The second path, if you chose to use Abeka curriculum in other subjects, is the integration of the grade level scope and sequence, which takes the material taught in science and reinforces it in other subjects like language arts and reading comprehension. While this approach is helpful for mastery, it is not necessary to use other Abeka courses to gain a thorough understanding of the sciences. Scripture references are KJV.
Following a traditional philosophy of education, the basic components include a student text and a teacher edition and/or answer key. Student textbooks are full color and written at a level that each learner can read and understand. Teacher edition content will vary depending on the grade. At all grade levels, Abeka science is teacher led and not designed for independent student work, although at the higher levels, students may be able to do some reading and related activities independently. The K-2 teacher guides include all the information needed to teach science successfully from the scope and sequence and lesson plans with teaching notes, to the activity suggestions and answers (except kindergarten). Beginning in Grade 3 through the high school courses, teacher resources have been divided into separate categories. While this may seem overwhelming, targeted teacher resources help parents and teachers find what they need quickly. Additional supplemental resources may be available. Student and teacher books are not reproducible. See individual descriptions for more information. ~Deanne
