Developing a Philosophy of "Curriculum" for the Local Church
One of the greatest needs in the entire field of Christian education in the Arab world is that of curriculum. Unfortunately, there is relatively little printed materials for children, youth, or adults. We trust that you will find the following sessions a help in understanding the value of a good curriculum, as well as learn more about how you can adapt and arrange the materials that are available into a curriculum that you can use for your age group.
Another important area of curriculum that a teacher should be aware of is that of hidden curriculum. A teacher who understands how to intentionally use hidden curriculum can teach far more than what is in the printed lessons, as well as impact students in more lasting ways. One of the following sessions will introduce the topic to you, but we would encourage you to keep exploring this aspect of teaching until you become a master at intentionally using hidden curriculum to instill important Christian values into the thinking and behavior of your students.
