OUR CURRICULUM

OUR PRIMARY CURRICULUM:

ROOTED & CALLED TO BE MORE by Ruah Woods Press

We are proud to primarily use curriculum from Ruah Woods Press. Ruah Woods is a Catholic healing and retreat center in Cincinnati, OH. It houses its own Press, TOB scholars, and curriculum writers. Its motto 'Beauty Will Save The World' spoke strongly to us at the TOB Parent School, and we adopted their K-12 (soon to be preschool-12) curriculum as our official curriculum. Each of our parent-teachers is equipped with their own copy of this curriculum. You can learn more about Ruah Woods here

The Ruah Woods curriculum goes by two names, based on grade level. You can learn more about the K-8 curriculum, ROOTED, here, and the 9-12 curriculum, CALLED TO BE MORE, here. We hope to add more copies of each grade level curriculum to our library

OUR SECONDARY CURRICULUM: 

THE BODY MATTERS by TOBET 

Totally different in style and approach, yet equally helpful in sharing the message of TOB with youth, THE BODY MATTERS by TOBET (Theology of the Body Evangelization Team) is our main supplementary curriculum. You can learn more about THE BODY MATTERS here. Currently we have one set of each curriculum guide from K-8 in our library

SUPPLEMENT WITH ... 

CHILDREN'S LITERATURE

Ruah Woods' lower elementary curriculums are based on beautiful, award-winning children's literature that espouse the themes of TOB for that given year. For each grade K-2, there are also dozens of supplementary children's books suggested for lesson enhancement. You will find nearly all of those titles available for rent in our library. Children of all ages love to learn from captivating story books, and we are thrilled to be able to offer nearly 100 choices.  

SUPPLEMENT WITH ...

KIDS AND FAMILY MOVIES

There are many movies with life-affirming messages for youth, and our goal is to expand this section of our library with future funding. In the meantime search for some on your own that you can watch with your family to reclaim virtuous movie nights.

3-D RESOURCES

Many youth learn by touching, feeling, doing .. this is called kinesthetic learning and it is one of eight main learning styles in the world of education. With future funding we hope to fill this section of our library. From faux nests and stuffed birds, to more advanced models of the stages of life in utero, be on the lookout for newly added resources to this part of the library!

SUPPLEMENT WITH ... 

ANATOMY BOOKS

Whenever someone wavers on the theology approach to the body, I say 'just look at the anatomy of the body, then'. The indisputable science of the body is wrapped up in its intricate anatomy, head to toe. Centered in the body, is its reproductive system which acts like a puzzle of completion, when united with its spouse. We have several books in our library that teach these facts. Some are secular anatomy books, others Catholic books on new life, and many are appropriate for all ages. 

SOMETHING FOR MOM & DAD....

ADULT RESOURCES

Our hope is that when a parent checks out resources for their children, they will also take a book home for themselves. Even if they are familiar with or even well-versed in TOB, reading a current title on a subset of the topic can further empower them to embrace and teach these truths. We have about a dozen of our favorites available in our library, and will expand this section with future funding.
