Jim,

A youth worker I interviewed recently shared a thing she does as a practice in her own life, and that she shares with teens. She calls it creating a "Life-giving List." She teaches kids that God is life, that He creates it and gives it and nourishes it, so the things that we enjoy doing, that bring us joy and life and energy, can be considered gifts from him as well as places to connect with him, as the author and giver of life. So she encourages them to keep a list of those things, big and small, so that when life gets them down they can look at it, remember and connect with God in that life-giving place he designed in them. So I have been noticing this, becoming more aware of it in myself, and watching for and encouraging it in my kids. As my daughter, ------, has begun to engage with the British Literature, History and SAT Prep Guides, I have absolutely seen her come alive. More than just about anything academic for too long. As a parent, this affirms for me that I heard and followed the leading of the Holy Spirit by attending your session at the MPE Conference in KC, then purchasing and planning on those 3 pieces for her study this year. And I hope that it encourages you as the one he used to manifest them. He knows what our kids need, how he created them, so it is glorious to listen and see what happens when he has guided us and met their need and then to see them living in their gifts, calling and how he created them to live. Everything about how these three studies are structured and work are in sync with her mind and how she works and what motivates and stimulates her. Wow. I am looking forward to seeing how the addition of the webinars will add to these already-amazing gifts.

Filled with gratitude and anticipation,

-Kendra

About the Curriculum

The Premise: Teen learners know much more than they realize – they just need instruction to realize what they know and/or to recognize when/how to access and use their existing knowledge.

The Process: Students work through a series of 12 lessons, each involving from 15 to 22 Greek morphemes, and each building on prior lessons. Each lesson includes learning activities of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, as well as practice in using contextual clues reading strategies. Lessons engage all three brain pathways: visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic. Creative lesson reviews and student-made study cards help firmly fix knowledge in memory.

 

The Program: Unlike typical vocabulary programs involving big words and big definitions, this program involves small word parts and small definitions, and then using those small word parts to analyze words and to construct word meanings. Learners find this approach more challenging, more fun, and more effective in producing lasting results
