Doctrinal Mastery Cumulative Review

“Doctrinal Mastery Cumulative Review,” Doctrinal Mastery Doctrine and Covenants and Church History Teacher Material (2017)


In this review activity, students will study all 25 of the doctrinal mastery scripture passages in the Doctrine and Covenants and they will take a final quiz.

Segment 1 (20 minutes)

Explain to students that knowing the scripture references to the doctrinal mastery passages can help them as they teach the gospel to others and seek to find answers to questions.

Prepare students for a final quiz on the 25 doctrinal mastery passages they have learned throughout the course. You might do this by assigning students to work with a partner. Invite the partnerships to use their copies of the Doctrinal Mastery Reference Guide to study and review the doctrinal mastery passages they have studied during the school year, along with the accompanying key phrases. After sufficient time, students can quiz each other by stating the key phrases to see if their partner can identify the correct doctrinal mastery reference. After both partners have had the opportunity to be quizzed on the scripture references, invite them to quiz each other by having one student state the scripture references while his or her partner states the key phrases or explains the scripture from memory.

As an alternative to this activity, if students have electronic devices, consider allowing them time to download the LDS Doctrinal Mastery app. The LDS Doctrinal Mastery app is free and available for all mobile Apple and Android devices by searching for LDS Doctrinal Mastery in the App Store (Apple devices) and Google Play (Android devices). After students have downloaded the app, consider giving them some time to work with the flash cards and quiz activities in the app.

Segment 2 (20 minutes)

Administer a quiz on the 25 doctrinal mastery passages and their corresponding key phrases. You could administer this quiz verbally, or you could administer it in written form by listing the key phrases and allowing students to write the associated scripture references.
