Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/50-years-of-scripture-mastery-a-behind-the-scenes-look-at-the-new-scripture-mastery/ This article is a repost from si.lds.org, but since a lot of the people that follow this blog and may be interested in this topic will never see it there I have decided to repost it here. Enjoy! Scripture Mastery was first introduced to the seminary program in 1963 as “scriptures to be memorized or […]

Personal Electronic Devices In Seminary: Jenny Smith Says… “Just Another Tool”

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/personal-electronic-devices-in-seminary-jenny-smith-says-just-another-tool/ For those of you who may not be familiar with Jenny Smith… you probably are.

Day 4, Studying The Scriptures

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/day-4-studying-the-scriptures/ This lesson was based on the resources found in the Book of Mormon Seminary Teacher Manual, Lesson 2: Studying the Scriptures and Section 2.3 of GOSPEL TEACHING AND LEARNING: A HANDBOOK FOR TEACHERS AND LEADERS IN SEMINARIES AND INSTITUTES OF RELIGION. I encourage you to use the online version of these manuals since they have more content than the […]

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/personal-electronic-devices-in-seminary-if-not-now-when/ You can fight it, but in the end you know who is going to win.

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/day-3-the-fundamentals-of-gospel-teaching-and-learning/ First of all, if you have an LDS Account that will let you access the resources to si.lds.org, then you will want to explore the resources at: https://si.lds.org/improving-teaching?lang=eng#/improving-teaching/gospel-teaching-learning/fundamentals One of my favorite resources from that section that I like to use often is: President Erying discusses “little changes” that make the difference between the “casual way” and the […]

Day 2, The Objective

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/08/28/day-2-the-objective/ On day 2 we focused on understanding the objectives of the Book of Mormon and Seminary. I have found that when students understand the reason for something they are much more willing to “buy into” it. This lesson also introduces them to the process of “likening”-type thinking. We began by having the students pair and […]
