For the last six weeks or so, our family has been using and reviewing the Judah Bible Curriculum program.
While some curriculum programs take a bit more time for me to comprehend and understand than others, I eventually grasp the whole point of the curriculum and can justify its expense and the effort it took to understand the program.
Every once in a while, though, a review product throws me for a loop.
Judah Bible Curriculum has been one of those programs that leaves me with a head full of question marks. But that's not all bad.
Now to be fair to Judah Bible Curriculum, this program uses an approach to teaching that wasn't familiar to me.
I'd heard of The Principle Approach quite a few years ago, when my girls were babies. But I hadn't seen it in action, nor had I ever worked with any curriculum that used The Principle Approach...or so I thought.
The Principle Approach, in general, is not a method where the parent or teacher will be able to open up the teacher's guide to Page 1 and launch into the material with the student. It will take some teacher/parent training to put this program into action.
The Principle Approach is being aware of the providential hand of God in history and the lives of each of us individually, and the character trait of self-government, which is simply submitting to the sovereignty of God. There is a component of Christian character and national liberty as well, but the main idea is that we must learn to govern ourselves because we are submitting to God when we do so and that God's providential hand is all over history. --quote from fellow TOS Crew member in summarizing The Principle Approach for those of us who were not familiar with it
