TEACHER'S RESOURCES

by
Roger Smalling, D.Min

These manuals are the core of the "Visión R.E.A.L" leadership training system. The teacher's manuals contain lesson plans, group exercises, quizzes and graphics with transparency templates. The teacher needs a working knowledge of the subject, but much of the tedium in teaching is taken care of here. Student's manuals and workbooks are provided in prose format.
