What high school Bible curriculum is used in your schools?

I teach 9th and 10th grade Bible, alternating between Mastering Bible Study Skills from Purposeful Design and a New Testament survey course that I’ve cooked up myself. Our school used to use Purposeful Design’s New Testament survey course, but I did not like it at all. It wasn’t a New Testament survey so much as a scavenger hunt for miscellaneous facts about New Testament books. Mastering Bible Study Skills, on the other hand, is an EXCELLENT course. I highly recommend it.

We have a four year cycle for 9-12 Bible (taught as one class each year).
1: Life of Christ, with chronological and theme studies (parables, miracles, sermons). One resource book is Rabboni.
2. Wisdom books: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes. Job is an overview, with a study of the plot and major dialogue themes. Resource book for Psalms is the study guide by Irving Jensen. Study guide for Proverbs is Proverbs: The Fountain of Life from Positive Action for Christ curriculum offerings.
3. Old Testament survey (skipping wisdom books). Resource is “Journey of a Lifetime” (Old Testament) outline book from The Journey Series Curriculum publishers.
4. Bible Study methods. Introduction to book, theme, verse and word studies. Also included are topic studies on nonresistance and nonconformity using booklets published by CLP.
