Teacher GuideHigh School students often find themselves in the thick of major life decisions. When will I date? Who will I date? Will I go to college? Where? What will I do if I don't make the team this year? How can I get more hours at work? Sunday School is a great opportunity to offer hope and answers to searching students--to interrupt their daily lives with God's life-changing truth. It's exciting to see high schoolers struggle to apply biblical principles to daily decisions. What a rewarding age group to teach and interact with.All Scripture Press Sunday School lessons are built on the Focus- Discover- Respond model of teaching. We suggest a class schedule somewhat like this:Focus on your students' personal needs and interests to prepare their hearts to turn to God's Word for the answers to their questions (10-20 minutes). Discover--lead students in fun-filled- inductive Bible study- discovering God's truth and its implications for them (20-30 minutes). And finally- help each teen respond individually to God's Word as the Holy Spirit leads him or her to a specific life application. (10-20 minutes)Our curriculum is designed to be as easy to teach as possible. We've included the following teacher helps to make your preparation and teaching time quick and effective.Building on last week's Bible Truth at the beginning of each lesson will help you to link the current week's teaching to what's come before. In one concise box- the Overview lists the Scriptures to be studied; the Bible Truth; the Life Response Aim; the Key Verses; and the Focus- Discover- and Respond for the week's lesson. The Materials box lists every item you'll need to prepare and bring to class in addition to the Zelos High School Teaching Guide. Preparing Your Heart to Teach is a brief devotional to help you apply the truths you'll be teaching to your own life before you present them to your students. The Zelos Power Zone will help you tie in what your students have been studying in their Zelos Journal for Student Disciples leading up to this week's lesson. The Enrichment Ideas in each lesson are special activities and projects that require extra preparation. These options allow you to customize the lesson for your particular group.
