Extras

We hope these extra resources will help set your Anchorsaway class up for success! Although it takes time to learn the material and assemble your Anchors team, the following items should help you greatly in communicating biblical worldview to your students and with their parents.

This is a great tool to see if the material and the teacher and small group leaders are getting the job done as far as teaching biblical worldview. Be sure to study these once they’re completed by the students and make necessary adjustments to your strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully, it will serve as an encouragement to all of the hard work you have poured into your students.

We print these bookmarks on colored heavy paper and then laminate them. We encourage students to put these in their college text books or in their Bibles to remind them to ask good questions back to those who are making sweeping statements about things that matter! And yes, of course, do this with gentleness and respect.

Once you have a list of students, we suggest that you make a name template and print those off each week so your students can wear them. This will allow you to read their names and consequently learn them. It is also essential for students to learn each other’s names as well.

A mother who wanted to do something special to make the evening of Anchorsaway a warmer atmosphere for the students made each night (for years) these cookies. All of our former students remember them because of their size and also the fact that they’re delicious! Students told their Moms about them and we received so many requests for this recipe that we put it on our website.

This survey can be used the first night of class to get a feel for what your students know about the foundations of the Christian faith. As a teacher, this offers valuable insight as to what needs to be covered during your class. You can also give this survey at the end of the semester to see how their answers changed.

Anchorsaway Student Survey

The first night of class, we recommend sending this parent letter home with the students so that their parents will know what Anchorsaway is and what we hope to accomplish during our time together with their child. Make sure to put your name and number on the letter so parents feel free to call you with any questions. Remember, this class is not for parents.
At the end of the year we traditionally have a year-end picnic with students’ and family. We have it at the host home or someone offers up their home for the “event”. We cook hotdogs and provide drinks and the students, with their parents, bring food to go along with a picnic.
The information on the importance and need of the accountability letter is presented in Lesson 20, “How do I make good life choices?” This accountability letter is extremely important for the students so please make sure to print it out and have them fill it out IN CLASS after one of your lessons toward the end of the semester. Along with this letter, give each student an envelope for them to fill out with their name and address on it with a “please forward” written on the front of the envelope. Tell the students to put their letter in the envelope and seal it. Tell them that you will keep the letters until some time in the early spring when you mail them. When the parents get them they will not read them but forward them to their child at school. Students LOVE it when the letter comes to them at school. This is a great accountability check for them!

Invitation Flyers

Here are sample class flyers you can give to and send to prospective students. We print these off in color sheets and give them to youth groups, para-church ministries like FCA, Young Life and Campus Crusade and have them pass it on to their junior and senior students. If you are in a position to be around parents of high school aged students, give them a flyer as well. The more diverse the group, the better! Edit the flyers to your liking to make them your own or you can make up your own altogether. Please share your own creative flyers and we will post them on this site for others to use. Thanks!
