Instructional Facilitators Manual (IFM)

Tools to enable classroom delivery of Berean School of the Bible courses

Included in each facilitator's manual is a complete set of lesson plans and instructional aids for your class presentations. These Instructional Facilitators Manuals (IFMs) enable users to clearly and logically review Berean School of the Bible course content in a group setting. The purpose of having a classroom experience around the course content is to ensure that the students enrolled in the course comprehend the material and can successfully complete the course and related exams.

IFMs are $50 each (before 20% study group discount) and include these components:
  • Printed lesson plans; printed masters of worksheets, handouts, and visuals for photocopying.
  • A CD with PowerPoint slide shows, an interactive customizable PDF of the IFM contents, and printable PDF files of worksheets and visuals.
  • Logos Bible Software links for further research. This feature requires the user to have a Logos Bible Software installed on a local computer.
