An abbreviated lesson is prepared for students. It includes the news article, urls, a few discussion questions to get them to think about the issue, and Scripture references. After you purchase the lessons, you have our permission to duplicate them for distribution.
We suggest that you give the student handout to your class a week prior to the day it will be taught. It is then good to have additional copies to give to unexpected students on the day the lesson is taught as well as copies for students who forgot to bring their handout to class. There is no limitation put on the number of copies you may duplicate. By giving the students the handout the week prior to the day it will be taught you can give a brief “teaser” introduction. This also allows them a chance to read the article, check on the suggested websites where additional information may be found, and study the passages of scripture which will be covered in the class session. This will encourage a better discussion.
