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.
