Keeping Students Together on Seminary Reading Report

CALENDAR / ASSIGNED READING REPORT I thought I would report on how using the calendar with assigned student reading worked out for us this year. I’ve added this in as a blog entry since it’s a report with my opinions in it. This is how I do Seminary — you don’t have to do it this way. I’m just sharing it because it has been so successful for our class, and I hope it could be helpful for you, too. Making a year-long calendar based on student reading assignments took me about 30 hours during the summer. It was really difficult since there was no way to read all the material ahead of time, I had to guess on some…

Minor Prophets – 2

It’s the last full week of Seminary, but who’s counting? ME!!!!! *I* am totally counting down! Jonah 1-4 For our lesson opener I used the manual idea and had the kids write on a apiece of paper the last place they’d ever want to visit. I told the students it had to be a geographical location, and gave them 60 seconds. Next I had them write one, two,or three words that explained why. I had a few share what they wrote.

Minor Prophets – 1

Here’s my lessons up to today. I will post pictures and handouts as soon as I can.

Finishing up with Major Prophets

So, the last entry was about me failing to journal. On April 23. :) It’s really not my fault tho — the website has been down even worse since Jared started tinkering with it. Dies about every 15 hours, and I don’t have the will to fight with it when we are close to moving to Drupal 7. I would like to tell you how annoyed I am by the entire process, but this is a Mormon website… This will have to do: >:(((((( Looks like I’m not really that far behind, but there’s some goodies in here worth covering. Hopefully I can remember the lessons from my notes. Jeremiah 52 Jeremiah is proven a prophet. See Deuteronomy 18:20–22. His…
