The teacher manual is now a 3-ring binder that includes the content of the former teacher cd-rom. The teacher binder is split between an introduction to the course and lesson plans. The introduction describes the advantages of Bible survey, the course purpose, methods used, teaching tips, lesson objectives, one- and two-year lesson schedule (70 lessons), and a memory verse program. Lessons include teaching tips and suggestions for discussion topics, activities, games, projects, small-format student pages with answers, and questions for enhancing lessons. Some lesson suggestions are for groups or classrooms only, but most will work well in a homeschool setting. In the back are reproducible tests and answers - twelve unit tests and two semester exams. Some of the information found in the teacher manual isn't found in the student book, but may be included on tests. Test questions may be short answer, multiple-choice, true-false, matching, and short essays.
This study provides a basic introduction to the structure and themes of the Word of God. As students journey through this fast-moving survey, they will discover truths and applications that God placed in each book of the Bible. God's gracious work is clearfrom creation to the cross to the consummation of time.

This printed edition of the Teacher's Manual ships in a sturdy three-ring binder.
While each book in the Bible has its own focus, its own specific message, there is a common theme and story that ties them all together. Route 66 is a survey of both the specific and overall themes encountered throughout the Bible. It works through all of the individual books, in the process laying the groundwork for a solid understanding of the Scripture and the principles within. Though I don't know if there is an official term for it, this is definitely an "open-Bible" study: students (and probably parents too!) will need to have their Bibles out and open as they work through the lessons. The student's manual plunges right into the lessons, using a consumable format that, once completed, will result in an attractive keep-sake full of easy-to-reference overview and summary information for the entire Bible. The teacher CD-ROM contains PDF files of all the completed pages from the student's manual as well as a huge teacher section. The teacher section is split between an introduction to the course and a notes section. The introduction describes the advantages of a Bible survey, the purpose of the course, methods used, teaching tips, lesson objectives, and a memory verse program. The notes section is 121 pages of teaching tips and suggestions for discussion topics, activities, games, projects, and questions for enhancing the lessons. Some of the suggestions in the notes section are for groups or classrooms, and would be hard to do without a group, but most will work well in a homeschool setting. The last section on the CD is a test file containing 13 tests, a mid-term, and a final exam. Positive Action Bible Curriculum has done a commendable job putting together this comprehensive Bible survey. - Zach
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.
