Come Follow Me - YW Teaching Curriculum

Some of my sweet Young Women in front of the Mesa, AZ temple.

Now that Christmas is officially over, I've FINALLY had some time to dig my feet into learning about the church's new Youth Curriculum.  I must say that when I first heard about this new change, I was a tad bit  nervous. {I'm not a big fan of too much change!}  But now that I've had the chance to start studying about it and watching the videos provided online...I am ECSTATIC and wonder why we haven't been teaching like this ALL ALONG??

I'll be posting my ideas and thoughts more as the year gets started.
{So many fun things to do and learn!}

For now, I thought I would share an email with you that I sent out to my fabulous leaders just last night.  I just BARELY finished up our teaching schedule for the new year and if you'd like to see a copy of it to use as a guideline for your own group, please feel free to comment on here with your email address and I'd be happy to send you that along with some more details!  It's all a tad overwhelming at first but once I sat down and figured things a little more...I became at peace with how it all should happen!

I hope you find this email useful and please...contact me with any questions! I'm no pro by ANY  MEANS but the power of social networking with questions and answers has helped me SO MUCH with my calling in the past! Again, my ideas are JUST SUGGESTIONS!

xoxo
Marci

Ladies! Attached is a copy of the 2013 LESSON/TEACHING schedule.  Please look it over as each month is a little different, print it out and put it in your binders.

I have to admit.  I was a little skeptical {okay...nervous!} about the whole new teaching curriculum.  It hasn't been until this past week where I've had the chance to sit down, ponder, and read everything online about it.  I must say....NOW I'M EXCITED about it!  I really am! I would ask each of you to sit down sometime during this next week and go over it all yourselves too.  IT IS ALL ONLINE!  Isn't that fabulous?  To get you started....would you please watch at least a few of these videos found here?


By watching these videos...I really started to grasp onto the concept of 'Teaching like the Savior taught' idea and it all clicked in my head...like a lightbulb went off!! Like...why haven't we been doing this all along?

Now, that said.  It is going to take a lot of preparation spiritually on your end,  when it comes time to teach. I would encourage you to start preparing at least the Sunday BEFORE you are scheduled to teach...by praying about the material that you should discuss and by studying the recommended scriptures for the following week.

Each month is given a specific topic to discuss.  As we meet together with ALL of the YW on fast Sundays, someone from the Presidency will start out the month by introducing and teaching that topic.  Now, following that, I have given SUGGESTIONS for the following weeks as what to follow up with.  THIS IS JUST A GUIDELINE with outlines that I have pulled from lds.org.  You are encouraged to prepare and teach with the sprit.  

Let me give you an example.  For the month of January - there are actually 5 outlines to choose from for the month but there are actually only 3 Sunday's where we'll be meeting together, because of Ward Conference.  So...according to my 'guideline' the two outlines that were left out on the teaching schedule were 'What are the roles of the Holy Ghost' and 'Who am I, and who can I become'.  Both VERY important topics.  So....if you look at the schedule and see that it is SUGGESTED that you teach on 'Why is Jesus Christ important in my life?' BUT....you feel inspired to teach on "What are the roles of the Holy Ghost'...because that is what you feel your girls need to discuss...THEN PLEASE SWITCH AND TEACH on what you feel prompted to teach on.

Does that make sense?  I made up this lesson schedule JUST as a guideline, to sort of get us going.  It is up to you though to go online.....check out each month....check out ALL OF THE OUTLINES included for that month....and then go from there.  All of that info can be found here:


If you look on the left hand side..it is all organized according to each month and you just click on that month and it all pops up.  You will probably want to BOOKMARK this link as you will be visiting it OFTEN this year! This is where you can also find all of the scriptures to use as well as video and updated materials.

PLEASE let me know if you have any questions at all.  We will discuss this a little further at our BOARD MEETING on Jan. 14th at 9AM at MY HOUSE so PLEASE be sure to attend!

Thanks for all you do ladies.  I am excited about the NEW YEAR and working with our awesome Young Women!!!

xoxo
Marci

  1. Yes, yes, and yes. I would definitely love to get a copy of your teaching schedule as a guideline. I, like you, am a "not good at change" type of person. I've looked into the new curriculum here and there but haven't really spent enough time, like I should. You can be sure I will continue following your blog, faithfully! sayer13@hotmail.com

  3. Hi Marci,

    Thank you for all the ideas you share for YW Leaders. They are amazing and a great help.

    Could you please send me the 2013 Lesson/Teaching Schedule. I appreciate your help.

  4. Yes i would like to see what others are doing as well. We are having everyone teach one month at a time. That way the teacher can choose what she best feels the class needs to hear, and then she can be prepared with all the topics and go from there is she wants. It is super hard to wrap your head on how it all should work, so i look forward to all the extra ideas. Mmheiney@gmail.com

  46. I too wouldn't mind a copy of your schedule. I do have a question for you and anyone else who wants to comment. how are you going to get the scriptures and stories etc to the girls before each week so that they will study the information? I thought about printing a study notebook----with scripture references in it etc----I don't know........any other ideas?
    Thanks for your help!

    1. Nancy...I'm thinking of maybe having the adivsors/teachers email the girls mid-week with some scriptures they can study before Sunday. Still not quite sure. Was thinking about making up a notebook for them as well but would probably just leave it blank inside so they can take notes as they'd like. That...and I am too overwhelmed to fill it all out with the scripture references as of now :) So much to do at the beginning of the year it seems like, huh? xoxo

  55. I am curious how you went about asking the girls which outline topics they wanted to learn from since we were asked to address this with our class presidencies. Did you give them the list for the year and let them choose what they felt like they needed the most?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To start out...I just came up with the basic guideline to go by. As we have our monthly class presidency meetings, we will discuss the topics with the girls and change and modify things as needed. I felt that we just needed something to sort of get us going....

  58. In our ward we are letting the youth choose which outlines are taught for each month in our byc. They look at the different outlines pray about their class they come together and choose. They also choose which outlines are taught in sunday school. It has been an amazing spiritual experience. This way we are teaching exactly what they want.
