THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE
For High School and Adult Education
Published by the Orthodox Christian Education Commission
Student text, full-color, $15.95
Teacher Manual, $21.95
Produced by the Orthodox Christian Education Commission, the first text of the new series offers firm knowledge of the Orthodox faith, and encourages spiritual maturity.
With an optional award component, lesson plans that offer cooperative learning options, and attention to multiple intelligence theory, the program surpasses any Orthodox effort to date.
The student book is written in two parts. Part I offers 24 four-page lessons with illustrations and graphics that invite participation. Part II contains four resource sections: 1) "Feast Days and Icons," 2) "Saints," 3) "Briefs," and 4) "Glossary."
The teacher manual provides lesson plans for standard or cooperative learning use, and all required worksheets and visual aids.
The teacher manual also offers paragraphs of background reading on each topic, from classic Orthodox authors, to help educate the presenters, or to supplement the lessons presented to an adult class. To order, contact the Antiochian Archdiocese Bookstore at (201)871-1355.
