Proverbs Teacher's Manual
The teacher manual is now in print format and comes in a 3-ring binder. It contains 35 lessons, weekly schedules for three-, four-, or five- day per week, learning objectives, teaching strategies, optional scripture memorization plan, reproducible weekly quizzes and unit tests (answer keys included), and reduced student pages with answers. Teachers will lecture from the material found in the teacher edition and students take notes in the student book. Material from both the teacher and student editions is found on the quizzes and tests and may include short answer, multiple choice, true-false, matching, and short essay.
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.
This study of Proverbs is not only well done, it's the kind of book you want to hold and peruse for its texture and inviting allure. Positive Action for Christ has written a study that will prepare your high schooler for what lays beyond the high school years, by helping lay the foundation for wisdom and character. This 35 lesson study is completely focused on wisdom and its life-application. Charles Bridges said of Proverbs and the young, "It takes them as it were by the hand, sets up way-marks to warn against coming danger and imminent temptations, and allures them into the bright ways of God by the most engaging motives." The first eight lessons prepare the student for the remainder of the book, which focuses on the Christian walk and fruits of the spirit, and their relationship with others. There will be reading, discussion topics, and note-taking during the instructor's lecture. An optional indexing activity encourages the student to categorize the topics in Proverbs using chapter and verse, which can be a helpful tool for future reference. Opportunities for assessment are provided through quizzes and tests. In every lesson there is a short amount of reading and an application section for the student. It is followed by a teacher lesson in which the student fills in notes as the parent/teacher speaks. 'Developing the ideas' is the closing section of the lesson and includes memory work and project suggestions to put the new lesson in practice. The teacher CD-ROM contains PDF files of valuable information. It not only includes answers in small format student pages, but offers grading rubrics, further explanation of the program, and the lecture portion on which the student is to take notes in their book.
This would be a great study to do with a group of students because of the discussion opportunities. If you do this study one-on-one, you could use the questions as a family discussion time. This is a study to benefit your high school student or even you as a parent - it's that good!
