Grades 6-8:

The ROOTED: Theology of the Body curriculum is supplemental — it’s designed to work with your teaching schedule. The lessons can be taught alongside your regular course work as you progress through the academic year.

Feeling overwhelmed?

Check out the “Presenting a Unit” section on pg. v in your Teacher’s Guide. You’ll find everything you need to create powerful experiences in the classroom as you explore with your students the wonder of being created in the image and likeness of God. Each lesson can be a retreat from the ordinary — with prayer, beautiful concepts, open dialogue, and hands-on activities arranged in simple daily sequence.

If that’s not enough to get you started, you can download a timed lesson guides for each unit below. Feel free to teach all the lessons or choose several units to cover with your students. Once you become familiar with the cadence and the material, you’ll want to expand the time and explore it all. This is teaching for a lifetime of love and happiness —and for an eternity thereafter.
