Teaching Children’s Classes, Grade 2
A branch course of Book 3
This book, which builds on the experience gained in Book 3 in teaching classes for the spiritual education of children, is intended for those interested in pursuing this highly meritorious path of service. It presents an opportunity for participants to reflect on their first year in conducting a children’s class and offers lessons for the second grade of an educational program inspired by the Bahá’í teachings. Also included in the book is a collection of songs for use in educational activities with children.
Courses in the area of child education will form a specialized branch in the Ruhi Institute’s series, which will train teachers of Bahá’í children’s classes for grade two and upwards and will become progressively more complex in nature. It is envisioned that, upon their completion of this specialized branch, teachers will have acquired a substantial amount of knowledge about the field of education in general and will have developed fairly sophisticated skills related to lesson planning and classroom management.
Implementing a program for the Spiritual Empowerment of Junior Youth
Courses for implementing a program for junior youth will form a specialized branch. They will complement, and eventually merge with, the branch courses for teaching Bahá’í children’s classes. Referred to as “animators”, those who enter this path of service will be helped to prepare themselves to work with young people between the ages of 12 to 15 and to familiarize themselves with the materials recommended by the Ruhi Institute for use with this age group, which currently include items with content inspired by the Bahá’í Faith, as well as those which address specific Bahá’í subjects.
