Balances good scholarship and practical application. Written for use in the classroom, this curriculum facilitates a lively classroom filled with questions, discussion, and personal application.
Written with the African ministry context in mind. This is reflected in the content, illustrations, and discussion questions in each chapter. This curriculum is also being translated and published in the major languages of Africa.
The series is affordable so that every student can purchase a copy of each textbook and its corresponding student workbook.
Every book in the Discovery Series has a corresponding instructor’s packet, student workbook, and digital Test Maker file.
- Instructor’s Packet
The instructor’s packet contains helpful resources for the teacher, including a sample course syllabus, chapter objectives, a large selection of possible test questions, ready-to-use unit and final exams, answer keys for exams and chapter review exercises, and student projects.
- Student Workbook
The student workbook contains four different types of homework questions for each chapter. These questions reinforce the major concepts of each chapter, encourage students to apply the content to their own lives and contexts, and assist them in preparing for exams.
- Test Maker
Test Maker is a computer program that teachers can use to create their own tests for Discovery Series books. All of the test questions from the instructor’s packet are also in the accompanying Test Maker file. Teachers can use the program to select questions of their choice to instantly create their own personalized tests.
