Abstract:

Frustration runs high for many a Sunday school superintendent and Christian education committee burdened with the task of finding "the perfect curriculum." No matter how well-defined the qualities of the "ideal curriculum," the reality is that, unfortunately, it probably doesn't exist! According to Christian educator Nancy Ferguson, the good news is that it is possible to provide curriculum materials that are consistent with a congregation's understanding of what it means to be a Christian and how Christian faith is formed. Two ways exist to accomplish that goal: use clear guidelines to evaluate purchased curriculum resources and write curriculum resources that are in harmony with a congregation's priorities. With the Christian Educator's Guide to Evaluating and Developing Curriculum, educators will learn how to: Articulate the goal and purpose of your congregation's educational ministry; Identify the six key elements of your Christian education program; Use the six key elements to evaluate purchased curriculum resources; Develop a scope and sequence for writing your own resources; Write session plans that are in agreement with your six key elements; Equip writers to develop session plans consistent with your educational purpose; Train teachers to use the curriculum materials; Evaluate the curriculum resources you have written. Reproducible worksheets throughout make this a highly practical resource for Christian education committees and teaching workshops. - Publisher.
