Product Description:

Young people today are bombarded with examples of foolish behavior and humanistic thinking. How can we as parents, teachers and youth group leaders equip them with wisdom for making right choices through their later teen and adult years? How about guiding them into a right understanding of wisdom? Looking at the differences between Godly wisdom and worldly thinking as well as wisdom and foolishnesses, this study leads students in understanding what God's word says about every decision they will make in life. Topics include: Attitudes, Friendships, Loving people, dealing with the flesh, walking in the Spirit, integrity, meekness and humility, self-control, finances, controlling our words, being a good leader and much more. Consumable softcover Student Manual contains introductory reading assignments and lesson reviews, outlines for teaching sessions and inductive study questions designed to challenge students to "dig into" God's Word. The Teacher Manual on CD contains 35 lessons, schedules for three-, four-, or five- day per week Bible classes, learning objectives, teaching strategies, optional scripture memorization plan, weekly quizzes and unit tests (answer keys included), and reduced student pages with answers. ~ Deanne

Publisher Description:

In middle school, young people face more and more decisions on their own. Soon they find that their new freedoms are followed by greater responsibility and higher expectations. Wise Up encourages your students to study the wisdom of God in Proverbs, allowing Him to shape their lives into the image of His Son, Christ.

I can see why we have had multiple requests for this Bible curriculum. Originally written for Christian schools, the popularity of this curriculum has continued to grow in other countries as well as in the United States. They now make their materials available for homeschool as they strive to teach the child's heart as well as the head.

Asking God for guidance
Renae B on Nov 17, 2018
Looking for an interactive daily study for my 12 year old, rather than just reading. Want her to get more hands on and dig, can't wait!
Samantha W on Oct 18, 2018
I chose this study to do with my son, so he may be filled with God's wisdom and hopefully use this as a tool for future decisions.
Diane G on Sep 10, 2018
It has been difficult to find a Bible program or Devotional for my 12 yr old son. We homeschool and I want him to have a solid understanding of useful application of the Word of God. However, every program has not been a good fit. He has ADHD and Dyslexia and struggles to concentrate or read. So, when I saw this program I thought it was just what I was looking for. I will make some modifications but I think it will be practical, interesting and I am praying he grows from it.

Best Wisdom book for middle and high school ages!
This is the best book on wisdom I have ever found. I bought two for my middle schoolers, and found it so helpful that I ordered three more for my high schoolers. The Bible reading is intense and the book requires critical thinking, but the teaching is clear and the chapters are very focused on the challenges kids face as they grow up. I can't recommend it enough. I will be buying this book for my little kids when they are older.

A Rare Find
There are several things I like about this Bible curriculum. The student is called to a mature understanding of God's Word. And yet, the goal is not just biblical 'knowledge.' There is no 'cheesiness' in the approach. The book design itself beautifully conveys this. The concept of Scripture interpreting Scripture is well applied. Examples of the precepts of Proverbs are taken from biblical accounts and cross references, rarely from 21st century interpretation and scenarios. There is straight talk to the student about reality rather than a feel good about yourself approach -- but it is not really didactic or moralistic in its tone, because it points the student to Christ's loving provision to live as He instructs. Outward conformity and 'feigned obedience' are not the goal, but a heart transformation through truly knowing Christ. I felt my student needed to go deeper and own her faith, and this curriculum provider is speaking my language about how to best encourage that.
The one area of difference I have with the curriculum is that it is designed to be teacher-focused as it was designed for Christian schools. I prefer not to 'teach' the topic with slides and lecture, etc. because I agree with Charlotte Mason that the teacher should not present herself as the fountainhead of all knowledge. However, I am going to read the teacher resource and discuss it as needed in a more relational way with my homeschool student. As my student enters high school, I will also begin grading, which I have not done previously, and the teacher resource provides some objective help with that.

Such a great pre-teen/teen curriculum!
This is the best Bible curriculum I have found for my son. He is getting so much out of it at a critical time in his life. I homeschool, and he does this each morning. It hits on all the topics you want a child this age to understand. Highly recommend!
