We Are Responsible for Our Own Learning (December 31 – January 6)

My lesson starts by reviewing the three main lesson sections which are based upon the new manual; Time for Sharing, The Doctrine of…, and Learning at Home. For the lesson, we use three questions to facilitate the Time for Sharing. A class activity in 6 groups, where each group explore a group of scriptures and discuss the theme and if it is Home Centred or Church Supported Learning. After a quote by Elder Bednar, we have our first class discussion with three questions. We then explore the Doctrine of Learning by Faith, followed by another class discussion with three questions and two scriptures. A video from the youth who have embraced and grown with the Come, Follow Me curriculum helps learners to see the positive aspects of learning throughout the week. Closing quotes from church leaders then leads us into the two Learning at Home slides where we briefly review the next two weeks of study.

After singing “Come, Follow Me” (Hymn 116) discuss what the message of the Saviour to us is. 
Turn to page 393 of the Hymn Book. Under the entry for Come, Follow Me discuss why the tune entry is ‘Invitation’. Look through the Hymn again and identify or (mark on a copy) the invitations that stand out to your family/class. Read and discuss the two scriptures found at the bottom of the Hymn.


“[A learner’s] decision to participate is an exercise in agency that permits the Holy Ghost to communicate a personalized message suited to [his or her] individual needs. Creating an atmosphere of participation enhances the probability that the Spirit will teach more important lessons than [the teacher] can communicate” 
Elder Richard G. Scott
