Discover Seen Teen Curriculum

Seen Curriculum replaced Encounter Curriculum Fall 2020.

SEEN curriculum helps you provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to discover the truth and wisdom of God—all while processing what they see in the world. SEEN helps youth leaders speak about difficult subjects to young people, including those who may have already endured hard circumstances. Sessions have practical tips and training to help leaders (from new volunteers to seasoned veterans) be sensitive to the particular needs of teens who are experiencing the effects of stress, trauma, and conflict in their lives. Every student should feel seen and known in their church, their family, and their community. Walk alongside them as they build confidence that God sees, knows, and loves them too.

Digital Card Samples

For each lesson, there are accompanying video resources on the Seen Digital Card. Watch the Intro video for Quarter 1, Unit 1. This resource can be used in various ways: show it to your leaders and have an in-person, online or text discussion about the themes before you begin the unit, show it during the first lesson of the unit to introduce your students to the concepts, or break up the segments of the video and use as discussion starters for any of the four lessons of Unit 1.

What is a Module?

What is a module? Module is another word for an undated quarter. Since SEEN can be used as both a quarterly, seasonal curriculum (with fall, winter, spring, and summer quarters) and as an undated curriculum (for use on a nonseasonal schedule), we use this word.

What content makes up a quarter (or a module)? Three units make up each module. One unit is focused on spiritual growth, one is focused on character development, and one is focused on practical skills for life. Each unit is made up of four sessions in which essential principles are wrestled with and discussed through a biblical worldview.
