The Mennonite Education Agency has produced an Anabaptist history curriculum that is freely available on their website. Running the Race is designed for seventh and eighth grade. Be aware that, as a production of the Mennonite Church USA, not all the examples and emphases reflect a conservative Anabaptist understanding. However, with titles like “A Kitchen Evangelist,” “I Appeal to the Scriptures,” and “Prisoners Can Sing,” the stories of early Anabaptists may be valuable as additions to your own church history curriculum.
The Anabaptist Dramatic Readings available on the same site may also be useful resources for church history class.
