This is a study guide for the book titled Race for the Record, by Dave & Neta Jackson. In this book, twelve-year-old Alastair finds a way for Joy Ridderhof to record the Gospels in the native language on the Philippine island of Palawan.
There are 40 books in the TRAILBLAZER series. Each book focuses on the life of a Christian hero or a missionary. The books are classified as historical fiction because one or more fictional young people are included, but the information about the hero/missionary is true -- and there is a biographical section at the end of each book. The stories are suspenseful and engaging -- and readers learn about many Christian heroes and missionaries.
Race for the Record is set in the Philippine Islands in 1949; Joy Ridderhof is the missionary.
Each section of this guide contains vocabulary exercises, questions for discussion, and a reading activity. Extension activities and an answer key are also included.
1) This guide is designed to be interactive -- it is not in workbook format.
