frequently asked questions

WHEN SHOULD WE BEGIN THE TRACKERS PROGRAM?

You can begin Trackers of Truth at any time (as in, it's not constrained to any rigid seasonal calendar). Holiday lessons are available digitally, and those can be interjected into the curriculum as they arise. Simply pause the lesson flow and pick back up on the other side of the holiday.

WHAT AGE RANGE DOES THE CURRICULUM COVER?

Trackers of Truth was written with K-6th grades in mind, but could be adapted down for preschoolers as well. In our testing of the curriculum, preschool students engage really well with the videos and characters.

IS THIS A VIDEO BASED CURRICULUM?

There's a short (3-5 minute) video that accompanies each of the 40 core lessons (no video for the 12 supplemental holiday lessons that round out the year). The lessons don't depend on the video for the core teaching, but it's a really strong aspect of the design and context of the way the curriculum is framed.

WHAT’S THE SCOPE AND SEQUENCE?

Trackers is a three year curriculum. Our inaugural release was Old Testament. We'll release New Testament as our year-two curriculum for 2019-2020 and the core practices of the Christian life in 2020-2021.

CAN TRACKERS OF TRUTH BE USED IN A HOMESCHOOL SETTING?

YES! The author actually used it herself as she homeschooled her own children. While the scripted lesson is written for a group, it’s easily modified for one-on-one environments. It has also been used successfully in homeschool group meetings.
