“Quest for the Golden Quill” provides the classroom or home school teacher with a fun and exciting way to coordinate character building and motivational material as well as scriptural applications along with an existing curriculum. This adventure "game" was created in the classroom and used successfully with middle school students who previously had experienced difficulty in school, shown a lack of motivation, and/or demonstrated low self-esteem.
The adventure can be coordinated with almost any school subject and can be used as a supplement to the curriculum for a quarter year, half year, or the entire year. It works best when used for a half year or whole year.
The fictional story has 25 short episodes. Each episode takes about ten minutes to read and discuss. There are fill-in-the-blank handouts. If used with a year-long curriculum, one of the episodes would be read approximately every 5 to 7 days. (The exception is in the beginning where 2 episodes are read the first week.)
The story is about a group of students who embark on a quest and must avoid such hazards as the Lazy Old Goof-off Snake, Distraction Lake, Bad Influence Quick Sand, Getting Bored Swamp, and the Negative Attitude Shark. There's even a villain!
The story incorporates art, mazes, a word search, secret codes, and challenging decision making activities.
