This curriculum guide covers six major figures in the Christian Scriptures: Lazarus, Mary, Judas, Gabriel, Peter, and Jesus. Sixteen literary units covering novels, poetry, drama, and short stories are examined in the context of the biblical framework present in the artistic work.
In addition, you may purchase separately the video series that accompanies this teacher guide and which provides teachers with media-rich resources to assist them in preparing their students to understand and utilize biblical allusions to unlock deeper and more complex meaning in literary texts.
Both student manuals and 75 five-minute companion student videos are available, all of which contain thinking and reading activities and writing opportunities. These “Put Yourself in the Picture” videos will give students a brief introduction to elements such as the Who, What, When, Where, and How of the biblical figures and provide teachers/parents with a blended learning approach to teaching biblical allusions.
