Publisher Description:

Rooted and Grounded A Guide for Spiritual Growth is a Bible based study curriculum appropriate for upper level high school students in home school, Christian school, college, and adult discipleship.

This curriculum can be used for a full year of Bible with 10th, 11th or 12th graders in either Home School or Christian School. Concepts like Walk as Jesus Walked, A Pure and Holy Life, Servanthood, Unrealistic Expectations, The Principles of Relationship and Fellowship ,and Submission and Obedience to Authority, are some of the lesson titles presented in an appealing and easy-to-use format.

Written for a high school through adult level audience, this is a topical Bible study course that should take a full year. Topics cover selected areas of theology, relationship with God, and Christian living. Each week also includes a two-page introduction of an unreached people group accompanied by beautiful artwork by Julie Bosacker. This makes it easy to integrate prayer for each of these groups with regular lessonssort of like incorporating the same ideas presented in the book Operation World into your studies and prayer life. The study is non-denominationally Protestant. Introductions to each lesson, aside from the unreached peoples' information, are brief, so the focus is primarily upon Scripture itself. The student is directed to read directly from Scripture, then answer comprehension, analysis, and application questions. Frequently, lessons cross reference additional Scripture verses. Scripture verses are purposely not included in the student book so that students become more familiar with the Bible itself by looking up the verses. However, the teacher's guide does include an appendix with all the Scripture verses46 pages worth! Memory verses are included along with a suggested review calendar for optimum retention. Student books (spiral bound) are consumable and nonreproducible, so you'll need one for each student. The teacher's guide is quite useful. It includes all the student material, the Bible verses, sample lesson plans, teaching strategies, and notes/answers for questions students address in each lesson. Other features are weekly "prayer suggestions relating to the lesson, weekly review "quizzes, and some wonderful illustrations. In addition, there is a Test & Answer Keys booklet. The eight tests in the booklet include a mixture of short answer, vocabulary, matching, and essay questions. This is serious Bible study that would ideally be used by parent and child(ren) together. Although the publisher suggests using it only with upper level high school students, I believe that many homeschoolers in ninth and tenth grades would have no trouble with either the level of presentation or the ideas. ~ Reprinted from Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manuals with permission of Cathy Duffy, Grove Publishing.

Rooted and Grounded Student Workbook give the student plenty of room to write the answers. The journal pages give room for each student to record the things that God is revealing to each student.

Beautiful sketches of unreached peoples of our world by Julie Bosacker with geographical, cultural, and prayer information are included in the Teachers Guide and the Student Workbook.

There is a memory challenge with each lesson and a memory challenge review schedule included in the student and teachers guide. Lessons include writing assignments when appropriate. Reviews at the end of each lesson can be used as quizzes if preferred. Enjoyable artwork illustrates each lesson.

Category Description for Deeper Roots Bible Curriculum:

These are serious inductive Bible study courses with a strong missions emphasis. The authors believe that studying the Bible is the most important subject to be done each day. Since most of the common Bible stories are familiar to students by this age, they have attempted to put important but less well-known Bible reading in the lessons. Components of the program include the teacher's guide and the student book. "Suggestions for Younger Children" books are available for the first two books that provide ideas for covering similar content with youngsters. You will also need a Bible, and the course is designed so you can use your own or any version you like.

Each book is divided into several meaty lessons that focus on a specific topic, and span 10 or more days of study each. Topics vary in each book, from studying attributes of God in Book 1 to studying our identity as believers in Book 2 to developing Christian habits in Book 3 and finally, learning about aspects of Christ's character in Book 4. Topics have been carefully chosen by the authors to represent the most important or foundational ones for junior-high students to understand, and are presented in logical order. For instance, in Book 1, students study God's power and then His creativity, so they can see both of these attributes in the light of each other.

Text and discussion questions are provided in both the teacher guide and student books. The text is the Bible, with questions in the student book providing the references to be read. The amount of Bible reading required in a day would generally amount to a chapter or two in total, although verses might come from any book of the Bible. Student books provide enough space for answers to be written in. A Bible verse is memorized with each lesson. Occasionally, the day is devoted to some special project, such as a writing assignment or skit. Study pages (answer keys are provided) help students prepare for the test, which is given on the last day of the lesson. As previously mentioned, missions emphasis is evident throughout the program. Each chapter begins with information about a different people group. Students pray for this people group daily during the time it takes to complete the lesson. Books are black-and-white and illustrated with light-hearted line drawings. The Teacher Guide lists some introductory and helpful teaching and background notes, as well as answers to the discussion questions. Suggestions for Younger Children includes some of the line drawings from the student book (enlarged) to color, and suggestions of a Bible story to tell (not provided) or an arts-and-crafts project to do. One story suggestion and two project suggestions per lesson is the norm.

If you are looking for a good course to begin the transition from Bible reading to more serious Bible study for your junior high student, consider this one.

what is the difference between the 2015 edition and the 1999 edition?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From one of the authors:

99% of the Bible material is the same in both editions with 2015 having an updated format. There are revisions in the 2 page unreached people group pages that precede each Bible lesson. The people groups profiles are the same, but I did include updated, more current info and more photos on the UPG pages in the 2015 revision.

People have be using both editions without any issues.

We never made any changes at all to the test and answer key.”
Can more than one student use the student book by writing answers down in a notebook, or do you think they each need their own?
User on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it would work for students to write down their answers in a notebook. There are some blanks to fill in as well as a few charts. My children sometimes needed to review days 1-4 in order to complete the review lesson so it would be a little more cumbersome to look things up, but it could work. Blessings!

Rooted and Grounded is a wonderful Bible course that is very easy to implement since the students can work on their own! It is a great overall course for teens that already have a good biblical background The teacher's manual has all the answers and is very helpful for quick corrections There are Bible-based questions and application questions As an added bonus the pencil drawings of different people groups are beautiful It would also make an excellent discipleship Bible study
