Ruhi Book 3 - Grade 3
Teaching Children's Classes - Grade 3
This course currently comprises two units. The first unit advances the discussion started in previous courses about pedagogical principles. It explores in some detail the elements which make up the Grade 3 lessons.
The second unit, Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 3, comprises 16 lessons which build on previous lessons by strengthening understanding of the connection between the teachings of God's Manifestations and the qualities and patterns of conduct that were the focus of attention in Grades 1 and 2.
The lessons are divided into three sets. The overarching concept of the lessons is that the appearance of Bahá’u’lláh constitutes the fulfilment of God's promise to humanity. The themes of the three sets of lessons are:
- Fundamental concepts related to the Manifestations of God.
- The lives and missions of seven Manifestations that appeared prior to Bahá’u’lláh.
- The life and mission of the Báb.
Each lesson consists of ten elements: Recitation and prayer memorisation; introduction of the principal theme; memorisation of quotations; songs; historical episodes; facts; narration and drama; drawing; review; and closing prayers.
