I recently received a new product from Classical Academic Press called God's Great Covenant, New Testament 1 the Gospels! This product is the third in a series of Bible curriculums intended for 4th grade and up. God's Great Covenant is a full 36 week Bible Curriculum that covers the entire life of Jesus through all four gospels. It also focuses on 4 names of Jesus(Son of Man, God's Servant, the Messiah, and the Son of God). One name is featured for each of the 4 units. There is also a large emphasis on Old Testament prophecies fulfilled by Jesus. The student book starts out with an introduction section that gives a brief overview of the old testament, and sets up the historical, political, and religious period.
Each chapter consists of Memory pages( Time lines,Prophecy, Definitions, and Verses.), Story Time(Lessons written in a very conversational tone for students to read on their own. There is also stories included.), Worksheets(there are review pages at the end of each chapter.), and Quizzes(there is one quiz for each chapter located in the back of the student book. You will also find many maps included within the lessons.
The Teacher's Edition contains everything that is found within the student book along with the answers. There is also specific notes directed to the teacher to further explain the story time sections. As far as I can tell Students can either read and do the work independently or parents could read along with them if desired.
You can see an example of the Teacher's Edition Pages below!
This Bible Curriculum is very thorough and would make a very in depth study of the gospel for upper elementary or Junior High students.We were unable to actually use God's Great Covenant because I do not have any students within this age range currently, but from what I have seen it looks very good.
If you are interested in learning more about it you can go to the Classical Academic Press website! They have samples available for viewing there as well.
As far as pricing goes you can get the Student Book for $26.95+SH, and the Teachers Edition for $29.95+SH. They also have a MP3 audio download available of the Story time sections that cost $9.95, or you can buy all 3 as a bundle for $56.95+SH.
God's Great Covenant, New Testament 1, student and teachers editions were given to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was given.
