The youth curriculum for middle school and high school is based on The Story: Teen Edition. Acclaimed curriculum developer Michael Novelli uses his chronological Bible storying method of experiential teaching to create the engaging teen curriculum for The Story. He teamed with his artist brother, Mark, to create the 62 captivating stop-motion videos that open every session. You’ve gotta see these!
The Story: Teen Edition Curriculum
The Story Reader’s Scripts are passages of non-edited, non-paraphrased, pure scripture from The Story, divided into parts, and read aloud by students to the rest of the group. Simple, scripture-centric, compelling: these scripts are a great example of how The Story drives participants to engage directly with the pure Word of God.
Bonus Material: Teen Toolchest
