Wisdom Literature from the Bible

Wisdom Literature from the Bible is a standards-based (NCTE/IRA) curriculum that uses literary material from the Wisdom writings (Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Job) in the Hebrew Scriptures to teach English/Language Arts objectives. It may be used as a three-week stand-alone unit or can be used as a supplementary resource for a high school English course. Using verses from these books, students apply critical thinking skills, analysis, and oral and written skills to interpret meanings and imagery of selected material. Students also experience the influence of some of these writings on art, drama, and music.

The Teacher Instructional Guide includes daily lesson plans each of which includes vocabulary (list of words and definitions used in the lesson), People and Places (at the beginning of each chapter), Text References (list of page numbers in the student text), Background Information for the Teacher (information helpful in creating lesson plans), and Resources (recommended instructional tools). In addition, each lesson contains Learner Objectives, Student Applications and Activities, Cross-Curricular Activities, and Cultural Connections.
