Course Review

Preparing for Exaltation: Teacher’s Manual, (1998), 275–76


If you have extra time after a lesson or an extra lesson period at the end of the year, you may want to review the doctrines and principles that have been taught in this course. One way of doing so is described below.

Create a game board like the one illustrated and review the questions on the next page. (If you are going to play the game for an entire class period, you will need to create additional questions and play several rounds of the game.)

Divide class members into two or three teams. Have one team select a category and the number of points they want to earn (the higher the point reward, the more difficult the question). Ask the corresponding question, and give the team the appropriate number of points if they answer correctly. (You are the judge of how exact an answer must be to receive credit. For example, you may want to allow one or two minor errors in a scripture being quoted.) Have the teams take turns doing this until all the questions have been asked or you run out of time. As each question is answered, make a mark in the appropriate box so it will not be chosen again.
