Overview
A classic resource first published in 1943, the General Course of Study for Lutheran Elementary Schools offers a Christ-centered foundation for teaching religion, math, language arts, science, social science, fine arts, and more.

From the Foreword by Wm. A. Kramer about this manual:
“It aims to present a uniformly Christian course of instruction and training in all branches of learning, one which takes into account all of the child’s need of body, soul, and mid, a course that aims to accomplish the objectives of temporal Christian living and the one great objective of eternal life.”

“The Course is primarily one of school subjects. The course in religion lays the foundation for all other subjects and forms the center of the curriculum. Each of the other subjects is presented from the Christian viewpoint and made to serve as a course in Christian training.”
