Bible Study Syllabus (57 Pages)...$25.00

We use Introduction to the Bible by Fr. John Laux. This is an excellent text, with good questions requiring careful analysis of the material by the student. Introduction to the Bible is used as a springboard to studying the Scriptures in a much more formal way than has been done in the past. Over the course of the year the student reads the Bible analyzing it carefully. Such a study of the Scriptures prepares the student for the study of Catholic doctrine that will be presented in the 12th Grade Catholic Doctrine Syllabus. We also include essay and paper topics to give the student practice with writing in variety of styles. The Bible Study Syllabus has a day-by-day breakdown of this course along with paper topics, quizzes, answer keys to the quizzes, and a variety of teaching resources including Eleventh Grade Subject Rubrics, Learning Objectives, and grading charts. This is a 1 year, 1 credit course.
