2013 has seen the launch of new lesson manuals for the youth: YW, YM and Sunday School. People have long been requesting that the youth manuals be updated. But there has also been criticism that the YW manuals are all written passively in comparison to YM, to reinforce sexual stereotypes. The manuals are also much more flexible for teachers. For Sunday School, there are 5 lessons to choose from for the month of January, and the lesson plans are very open.
If you have taught using the new manuals, what do you think? If you have kids being taught by the new manuals, what do they think? Discuss.
