Recon is a new high school Bible curriculum, aimed primarily for juniors and seniors. This Bible curriculum is designed to help students spiritually prepare for college and their future. There are many battles and struggles they will face and we must guide them to the Holy Scriptures.
- Lessons in outline form; gray-toned highlights that indicate what’s in the Student Workbook
- reduced copies of the pages of the Student Workbook
- bold words indicating what students need to fill in blanks
- all charts, graphs and illustrations
- directions for each segment of each class; and other resources at the end of the manual.
How it Worked for Us
We used Recon three times a week. The author recommends completing at least 2 lessons per week. It is actually designed for Christian Schools, but can be adapted easily in a homeschool COOP setting. After reading and engaging in the lesson, we read the fill in the blank questions orally since they boys were sharing a book. This worked great for us.
One of our favorite parts of the study were the DogTAG exercises at the end of the lessons that are designed to help your student build virtue. It usually consists of a verse and applicable questions.
Each child was required to complete the Explore After Class or homework and we would discuss in our next lesson. It always sparked interesting conversation.
Our family reads the ESV Bible and the Recon uses the KJV. This was not a problem, they were able to adapt easily to the different text.
I believe Recon is an excellent Bible curriculum leading your child into spiritual adulthood. I believe it would bring many youth groups closer to the Lord and help them overcome the battles they will face in the real world. But it would require a strong commitment from the parents and youth leaders to make this curriculum successful.
We will continue with Recon starting next year when my children are closer to adulthood.
How will you child spiritually prepare for college or adulthood? I would love to hear your thoughts!
