Bible Curriculm
Christian School Curriculm


An Overview of the Course Essentials in Two Editions

Read Thru The Word is designed to be used as . . .

  • junior high Bible curriculum
  • high school Bible curriculum
  • homeschool Bible curriculum, and
  • college level Bible curriculum.

It can be adapted for each of these levels, including Bible college and seminaries, enabling students of all ages to significant gains in Bible knowledge.

Two editions of the curriculum are currently available on this website: NIV-170, and KJV-170. The number refers to the number of lessons planned for a 180-day school year. While the KJV edition is specifically designed for use with the King James Version Bible, the NIV edition can be used with not only the NIV, but other modern Bible translations commonly used in Christian schools.

The RTTW Teacher Handbook contains ninety-six pages of guidelines, suggestions, charts, form letters, student and parent surveys, and other helpful ideas written during the production of the materials, providing the teacher with superior support to implement this curriculum in a classroom. This booklet is applicable to both editions of the curriculum. The Handbook can be used for many years and with many different translations of the Bible.

The RTTW Teacher Lesson Plans contain detailed, carefully constructed, day-by-day lesson plans to provide plenty of information for both the new teacher and the experienced teacher. These plans provide for a structured use of every minute of class time. An in-depth knowledge of the Bible, while very helpful, is not necessary for any teacher to succeed with this curriculum. The Lesson Plan Book can be used for many years.

The RTTW Teacher Quiz and Test KEY is exactly the same as the Student Quiz & Test BOOK, except with the answers provided. A multiple-choice Quiz is provided for each day's reading early during the next day's class. A true-false Book Test is also provided for each book of the Bible, given on the day following the final reading assignment for each book. Once each quarter a Books of the Bible Test over the books of either the Old or New Testament is provided. In addition, once each quarter there are fill-in-the-blank Memory Verse Tests.

The RTTW Student Quiz and Test BOOK provides not only a means for teachers and parents to measure the students' comprehension of the Bible text, but also functions as a secondary text book. Questions are designed to assist both the teacher and the student to consider ideas and raise good questions which they might not otherwise discover through reading alone. Questions are written for a wide range of student abilities from seventh grade through college.

Materials shown here are for Year 1 of the two-year curriculum. Year 1 includes the reading and testing of Genesis through Ecclesiastes. Year 2 includes Song of Solomon through Revelation.
